	<strong>Weekly                               Reading Tutors - The Learning Center</strong>
</p>

<p>
	Dawson volunteers are needed to serve as Reading Tutors at The Learning Center.  Reading Tutors provide individualized teaching to functionally illiterate adult students.  The Learning Center, through a comprehensive literacy and education program, meets the needs of adults seeking to break out of the cycle of generational poverty. As a volunteer, you will make a tremendous impact in the life of another adult who is struggling to succeed while demonstrating the love of Christ to someone who is in need.  Tutors meet each week with students during the semester.

	We need your help! Dawson volunteers have done an amazing job serving the 2nd and 3rd grade children at Washington School through the Discovery Club Bible Program.  Our efforts have opened the door to start a new class for the 4th and 5th grade children beginning in January 2016!  As a result, we are looking for new volunteers to serve alongside our existing group. Discovery Club is an exciting time for children to discover the wonderful truths from God’s Word.  The curriculum focuses on God’s amazing plan and teaches children the way to follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  Volunteers serve together reading Bible stories, teaching memory verses and leading worship songs! Discovery Clubs are held at Washington School, Tuesdays from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Would you consider volunteering to take the Gospel into this public school and help be a part of God’s plan to change little hearts? Contact Randy Poe at 871-7324 or rpoe@dawsonchurch.org to volunteer.

	<strong>Weekly                               Mentors - The Learning Center</strong>
</p>

<p>
	Dawson volunteers are needed to serve as Mentors at The Learning Center.  Mentors share life with students, encourage and support them, hold them accountable to their academic and professional goals, celebrate completed goals, and offer spiritual advice as requested. The Learning Center, through a comprehensive literacy and education program, meets the needs of adults seeking to break out of the cycle of generational poverty.  As a volunteer, you will make a tremendous impact in the life of another adult who is struggling to succeed while demonstrating the love of Christ to someone who is in need. Mentors connect each week with students during the semester.

	<strong>Spring and Fall                Reading Mentors</strong>
</p>

<p>
	Reading Mentors read with an elementary-school age child once a week during the school day, providing valuable individual practice for the child and an incredible opportunity to build a lasting relationship! The extra practice and individual attention often provide the extra boost to help the child improve skills and confidence! The program requires a once a week commitment during the school year, October-April. Materials and training are provided by Better Basics.

	<strong>Spring and Fall                Ready to Read </strong>
</p>

<p>
	Ready-to-Read targets second-graders in an effort to encourage children to fall in love with reading. Better Basics places a library of books in each classroom as well as a volunteer who visits the children twice a month! During visits, volunteers read to the children, engage them in conversations about the book, and encourage them to read independently. Plan to visit the class for approximately 30 minutes every other week from September-March. Training, books, and materials are provided by Better Basics.

	<strong>Spring and Fall                Motivators of Reading Enrichment</strong>
</p>

<p>
	M.O.R.E. (Motivators of Reading Enrichment) It’s hard to find a more rewarding experience than sharing the joy of reading with children AND having the opportunity to give them books of their very own to take home!  With the M.O.R.E. program, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing! Volunteers visit a designated 4th grade class each week to encourage the children to read books from the Better Basics library (We place one in each classroom that we serve!) and to reward them with books and other small prizes for work from the previous week. Plan to spend about 30-45 minutes each week from October-March.

<p>
	One often overlooked area of much-needed support is the tiring effort that goes into planning and organizing a community church event. When local churches in Maine conduct outreach events, the pastor, his wife, and other core team leaders are so consumed with the logistics (i.e. serving food on the day of the event) that they miss the opportunity to greet people and build relationships, which is the sole purpose for the event. Dawson will send small teams of volunteers to do all of the preliminary event work and serve as logistical workers on the day of the event so the pastor and core team members can focus on building relationships with the people in their community. These “behind the scenes” teams will play a critical role in connecting lost people directly to church leaders who then will have the opportunity to point them to Jesus Christ.

</p>

<p>
	<strong>Windsor Christian Fellowship:</strong> Windsor is a town located east of Augusta, Maine. The church averages 80 in worship on Sundays and is growing.  There is great potential here.  They inherited an older building (not historic) and have undergone a long-term project to modernize their sanctuary. During this time, they have continued to meet for worship in their multi-purpose room.  As of September 2017 the framing is done and they will pay electricians and plumbers to complete the rough-in phase of the project.  Once the rough-in phase is completed, there will be a need for hanging, mudding, sanding and painting sheetrock on ceilings and walls.  There will be trim work.  A stage will be built.  A new front porch, stairs and ramp will be built.  Some outside work is needed to cut trees and brush to increase visibility from the road. Some construction skills needed.

	<strong>TBD                                              Construction / North Berwick, Maine</strong>
</p>

<p>
	<strong>New Covenant Baptist Church:</strong> North Berwick is south of Portland and close to the New Hampshire border. The church building is about 25 years old, and for years the basement has been used as a food pantry ministry which has now moved to another freestanding location. They have cleared out the basement and want to build out the space for use by other ministries and as a Fellowship Hall. The large room is about 1,200 square feet, and there are several smaller rooms adjoining. The work will involve some drywall, preparing and painting the concrete floor, trim work, replacing lighting, adding a small kitchen (warming kitchen), and modifying a bathroom. Some construction skills needed.

	<strong>Flexible</strong><strong> Dates                                       </strong><strong>Community Exegesis</strong>
</p>

<p>
	The decision about when and where to plant new churches is based on thoroughly understanding a community from a spiritual perspective. A structured process of community exegesis, developed by the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, is used in Maine for this purpose. Volunteers will conduct the community exegesis and submit the findings. Dates are flexible with the average time needed being three full days per exegesis, per location. These projects are extremely valuable to the church-planting work in Maine.

	<strong>April 19                               Birmingham READS</strong>              
</p>

<p>
	ONE DAY ONLY - Guest Readers visit a designated pre-kindergarten-fifth grade class, read to the children and then, give each child in the class a copy of the book to take home! It's so much fun and a great way to encourage a love for reading! The event begins at 1:00pm and Guest Readers should plan to spend an hour at Washington School in Titusville.

	<strong>April 27-29                    Volunteer Training / Church Leadership</strong>
</p>

<p>
	One of the greatest needs in Maine involves motivating, equipping and training volunteers, and developing leaders to serve in critical areas of church ministry and management. Areas needing volunteer training and leadership development include: music & worship, children’s ministry, small groups, student ministry, outreach event follow-up, web and social media presence, trustees, elders, deacons, finances, benevolence, facilities, and more. Dawson will send specialized teams to individual churches for the purpose of training their members in specific areas of ministry based on the areas of training that each church requests. Conferences will generally be on weekends (Friday-Sunday).

	A small media team is needed to film and produce a video to document several Go Love Tell projects in Northeast Africa. These projects include both agricultural and discipleship projects. The team will also develop video clips that our partners will use as they mobilize other partnering fellowships in the U.S. and promote giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. <em>Dates coincide with the Northeast Africa & Foundations Discipleship Retreat projects.</em>

	This project will be Dawson’s first time to work in a major Eurasia city with Dawson members who now serve as full-time missionaries in this country. Only a small percentage of the population are Christian. Team members will encourage national leaders and share the Gospel through intentional, relational efforts which include door-to-door evangelism.

	In 2017, Dawson built a new, 30 bed, pediatric ward at Kigoma Baptist Hospital. In addition to the new ward, a digital x-ray system was purchased that will communicate with their new electronic medical record system. In 2018, a variety of healthcare specialists are needed on a short-term basis at Kigoma Baptist Hospital. These specialties include Cardiology, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Med/Peds, Neurology, Radiology, and Physical and Occupational Therapists.

	<strong>June 22-30                           City Evangelism    </strong>
</p>

<p>
	A small Dawson team will serve in this major city that is home to an incredibly diverse and strategic population.  There is a tremendous opportunity for the advancement of the gospel. It is a global city of 8 million people (less than 3% Christian) that provides access to three main indigenous people groups, and numerous other ethnic groups from countries that are difficult to access. Thus, the city serves as a gateway to engage not only indigenous people but those from around the world. We need individuals willing to share the gospel boldly to those that have never heard the true story of Jesus.

	<strong>June 27- July 11                    </strong><strong>ESL Center</strong><strong>     (DYP)               </strong>
</p>

<p>
	Dawson Young Professionals (DYP) will serve in Indonesia in Southeast Asia teaching English as a Second Language at the ESL Cultural Exchange Center.  This team will build relationships inside and outside of the classroom by serving as Native English Speakers to engage students in conversation, use basic learning exercises to help teach vocabulary and play games or share meals together.  This is an amazing opportunity to break down barriers and stereotypes as volunteers discover common ground through the English language and strengthen our missionary partners’ position to point others to Christ.

	<strong>July 1 - 31                          Medical Internship Program   </strong>
</p>

<p>
	Medical interns will serve in Southeast Asia partnering with medical staff at the local Baptist hospital to assist them with their quality improvement initiatives while sharing knowledge and skills in both inpatient and outpatient settings. This is a tremendous open door for medical interns to come alongside local healthcare professionals, build relationships and serve the physical and spiritual needs of the patients. Internship schedules are flexible – approximately 3-4 weeks.

	<strong>July 14 </strong><strong>–</strong><strong> July 21                       Vacation Bible School </strong>
</p>

<p>
	Southcoast Community Church, equipped with a young, dynamic pastor, is impacting the Portland suburbs of Scarborough and Gorham. Many families with children have moved into these neighborhoods, which provides a wonderful opportunity to reach more people with the Gospel.  As a result, Southcoast has committed to expand their VBS program to target more un-churched families.  They plan to have an all day program, much like a summer camp, because parents in the community are looking to enroll their kids in similar programs while school is out.  Southcoast also plans to write their own curriculum, pointing children to the love of Jesus and God’s plan of salvation! To be most effective, they have asked Dawson volunteers to help provide the necessary support to conduct an expanded VBS that would impact children from Kindergarten through 6th Grade. Volunteers would travel to Maine on Saturday, July 14, worship at Southcoast on Sunday morning, help set up on Sunday afternoon and serve during the week.  Volunteers would return to Birmingham on July 21.

</p>

<p>
	For the 10th year, Dawson will send a team to partner with the Life Song for Orphans ministry to serve orphans, ages 12-17, in Kharkiv, Ukraine. These children and youth from all over Ukraine live in state-run orphanages. The relationships that have been built over the years have been life-changing for the volunteers and the children. Dawson will conduct a sports camp and a Vacation Bible School.

<p>
	Many South Sudanese people have had to flee their war-torn country and are now refugees in Northern Uganda. In these refugee camps, there are many physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. This will be the second Dawson medical team sent into the refugee camps. The team will set up a base tent compound where they will stay each evening. During the days they will go to pre-approved areas and minister through Mobile Medical Clinics.

	Health care volunteers are needed in Southeast Asia to partner with medical staff at the local Baptist hospital for a minimum of 5 work days to assist them with their quality improvement initiatives while sharing knowledge and skills in both inpatient and outpatient settings.  Specialties needed include therapists, nurses, respiratory, administrators, pharmacists, primary care physicians etc.  While many of the hospital staff are believers, the patients are of Muslim background and do not know Christ.  This is a tremendous open door for medical volunteers to strengthen the faith of the local hospital staff and to allow patients to see the light of Christ in them as they serve their physical needs.

	Healthcare professionals, along with non-medical volunteers, will be serving in obedience to Isaiah 1:17. “Learn to do right, seek justice, encourage the oppressed, defend the cause of the fatherless, and plead the case of the widow.” Last year 1,901 people were served by four Dawson healthcare teams in Haiti. During these projects, 36 people made professions of faith.

	Volunteers with a sense of adventure are needed to work with a small group of believers in a rural church with a healthy outreach ministry perspective.  This church has the most innovative and proactive community outreach projects.   This group of believers spent 2 years collecting funds and building a small ministry/education center that teaches English, sewing, cultural dance and tutoring.  Help strengthen this ministry by teaching, encouraging and hands-on participation.  <em>“It is the only church-based ministry where I see many Muslims actively, and regularly, involved.  I’m praying for a break-through.” Go Love Tell Partner</em>

	Most of the workers among the tribes in Indonesia, Southeast Asia use “contextual Bahasa” rather than tribal language scripture translations. (Contextual Bahasa = translation used with those from a Muslim background).  Funds are needed to purchase Bibles, tracts and scripture portions in this “contextual Bahasa”.  Contextual Scripture is used with patient visits in hospital rooms and also placed on the bookracks in the hospital waiting rooms.

	<strong>Ongoing                                     Encouraging Words</strong>
</p>

<p>
	Many times the most overwhelming request from pastors in Maine is the need for encouragement. Pastors and church planters make tremendous sacrifices, particularly in their personal lives. This reality impacts each person differently but can often lead to physical weariness, emotional loneliness, and even spiritual depression. Through this project, Dawson volunteers will minister directly to pastors, spouses, their families, and core leadership teams by sending personalized cards, notes, and small gifts. These acts of kindness and encouragement, especially ones that are not anticipated, go a long way in lifting the morale of pastors and their families in Maine. Some examples of small gifts include gift cards to local coffee shops such as Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, a basket of toys or goodies for the children, encouraging books for the pastor and spouse to read, or even movie tickets so the whole family could have a night out together. Relevant details concerning pastors, families, and core team members will be provided so that cards, notes, and gifts may be personalized to individual and unique situations. This effort provides every Dawson member the opportunity to be involved in Go Love Tell, individually, as a family, or as a Life Group.
