If you've been looking for a kid's club that teaches Christian values for 3 year olds through 6th graders, consider Dixon Bethel's Awana program.
 
Dixon Bethel Church has one of the area's largest and longest-running Awana programs in the area, and we'd love for you to join us this year! Our clubs meet at Dixon Bethel Church Ministry Center (behind the church) on Sunday nights during the school year. 


Learning and Growing with AWANA:

Awana clubs teach the gospel of Christ to children from preschool through high school. Throughout the program, children are rewarded for memorizing Bible verses and completing character building activities. Younger children learn through games, crafts and puppets -- wonderful learning tools for this age. As they grow, children are introduced to small group interaction, community outreach, apologetics and life application of the gospel.


Dixon Bethel Church's Awana sessions are run by volunteers with a passion for sharing their faith with children.

GriefShare is a special grief recovery seminar and support group built around three components: video seminar, a support group and a workbook. This program provides tools to guide participants in sorting through their thoughts and emotions and in learning what the Bible says about grief-related topics. All three components are essential for promoting healing.

 

Grief is the cost of loving someone. It is inevitable that during such a loss we wouldbe deeply impacted, shocked or wounded by it. Grief is the maner in which we work through this loss. Grief recovery is not just simply feeling better but the ability to find joy in life again. It is to treasure thememory of loved ones, to miss them and to live better because of the time in your life that you spent with them.

Is it possible to kick the stubborn habit and change your life? Is it really possible to ditch the drugs, pornography and alcohol?  The answer is: YES.  It can be done. There is real, genuine freedom to be found from your addictions. You can live a life apart from your addictions.

This is not a Twelve-Step Program. This is a faith-based, Christ-centered Addictions Program.We use time-tested Biblical principles to guide you to freedom and give you a new life apart from your addicions.If you've tried everything else; if you've failed to quit dozens of times in the past, we can help you.
