Thanks for taking the time to explore what we have going on with college-age students at Dawson! By college-age, we mean anyone between the ages of 18 & 23, whether they are in college, the military, or working. Come check out what we have going on here at Dawson!

Life Group: Sunday Mornings
This is a great way to meet other college-age students here in Birmingham and the surrounding area. We dive into the Word together each week and are led in a lesson by one of our College Life Group Leaders. College Life Group meets at 9:45 a.m. in the Choir Room and is led by Brian and Lacey Middleton, Jonathan and Kristi Kelley, and our college team.

Wednesday Night Church
There are many ways to get involved at Dawson throughout the week during the semester. First, join us at 5:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall for Fellowship Supper (college students eat free!). You can then choose to serve in an age-group ministry, rehearse with the Sanctuary Choir or Orchestra, serve on the Kitchen Team, or join an intergenerational Bible Study at 6:00 p.m. Our college team will be in the Fellowship Hall and will rotate between the different ministries weekly to ensure you get to where you need to be.

Note: We will not meet in the summer months.

Village: Thursday Nights
Village is a great opportunity to get a taste of the community here at Dawson during the semester. These groups meet every Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. during the semester in a church member’s home. Come enjoy food with us at the beginning of our weekly time in the Word. For more information about group locations, please contact Cole Griffith, or follow the information in our Instagram bio.

Rest Weeks
Resist || Restore

Resist the urge to do more. Meet with God to be restored.

On Rest Weeks, Dawson College Ministry will pause all College events through the week (excluding Life Group). To rest is to create time and space for meditation on what the LORD has taught you and to practice the truth of our limits and dependence on God. God works when we are weary.

Fall: September 22, 2024 and November 24, 2024
Spring: February 9, 2025, March 9, 2025, and April 6, 2025


Service and Mission

Dawson's College Ministry is a ministry of service to the church, the community, and the world.
