Family Recreation Center

  • We will continue to allow state and local guidelines, and CDC recommendations to inform our plans for reopening the Dawson Family Recreation Center. We will collaborate with local YMCA and other fitness facilities to help guide our decision to reopen. We have now reopened the Family Recreation Center with limited hours. Please click here for more information.  

James 1:5 says, If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him.  Thank you for continuing to pray for our church leadership as they seek wisdom from God on how we can gather together again as a church family.
