IMPORTANT NOTE: During this unique season, we ask that all families register their preschoolers, children, and students for each Sunday that will attend in person so we can prepare for each class and our available space.
Registration is open from Sunday (at noon) until Wednesday (at midnight) for the upcoming Sunday.
For Dawson Preschool Families: Parents will have the option to leave their preschooler(s) in the care of DPM staff and leadership for ONE hour (9:30 a.m. OR 11:00 a.m.) for Preschool Life Group while they attend worship. Parents who only have preschoolers are encouraged to attend the 9:30 a.m. worship service. Dawson's Preschool Ministry will continue to offer online Sunday Morning Preschool Worship videos as well.
For Dawson Kids Families: A Family Life Group will be offered in the FRC Gym at 9:30 a.m. An adult must attend with their kids (no more than 3 kids to 1 adult ratio). Younger siblings are welcome to join. 1st–5th Graders may attend worship with their parents at the 8:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. worship. This Family Life Group will be live-streamed to DK’s Facebook page as an online option if your family is not comfortable returning to campus at this time. Additional video resources will be emailed out during the week.
For Hearts & Hands Families: The Hearts & Hands classrooms are available for families to use at 8:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m., or 11:00 a.m. Classroom Buddies are available by reservation for 9:30 a.m. Life Group and 11:00 a.m. Worship.

In keeping with Alabama’s statewide mandate, please wear a face mask when you are not able to maintain six feet of distance from those outside your household (i.e. when you are coming, going, or moving around between classrooms, hallways, and the Sanctuary.) Due to meeting inside versus open-air spaces, we strongly encourage children, students, and adult leaders to wear a face mask at all times. If you have any symptoms of illness, please do not attend. Enhanced facility cleaning, expanded air filtration, increased venue size, and other mitigation strategies have been implemented at Dawson to provide a safe environment for all ministry areas, Life Groups, and worship attendance.
