CHURCH APPROVES MASTER PLAN

At the Church Conference on May 15, the church approved the Master Plan and Conceptual Budget as recommended by the Ad Hoc Team - Sanctuary and Adjacent Space. The Master Plan is to renovate the Sanctuary, replace the West Building with a new structure, and add a Commons area east of the Sanctuary. This will give a flexible space for worship for generations to come and address many needs such as providing full handicapped accessibility, updating sound and lights, and bringing all systems up to current codes, while maintaining the character of Dawson. The conceptual budget is $24,350,000, to be paid through a combination of savings in the building fund, a campaign to ask members to give over and above their tithes and offerings over the next five years, and a loan. For more information on the Master Plan and the finances, please visit dawsonchurch.org/MasterPlan.

SERVE AT THE WORLD GAMES

The World Games 2022 will be in Birmingham July 7–17. The games will bring an estimate of over 500,000 visitors to the Birmingham area. While there will be many ways that we can serve and be the hands and feet of Jesus during this week, Dawson will be partnering with Baba Java coffee. Baba Java is a local coffee roaster and coffee shop in Hoover, AL. They are also the official coffee sponsors of World Games 2022. Through serving coffee at the World Games, we will have the opportunity to welcome guests and reflect the love of Christ. If you are interested in serving or have any questions, please contact Kasey Hagen at khagen@dawsonchurch.org or Josh Parvin at joshua@babajavacoffee.com.
