Dixon Bethel Ministry Center
131 N. Court
Dixon, IL 61021

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.
