FamilyLife’s “Weekend to Remember” is a two-and-a-half day weekend getaway for couples.The Weekend to Remember is not just a fun, romantic getaway—it could improve your marriage for the long-term as well. 

 

Hear the results of more than three decades of biblical research on what it takes to have a successful marriage and family. This is an incredible way to escape from your daily routine, learn to connect with your spouse more intimately, and understand God's blueprints for a wonderful marriage.

 

The format of the weekend combines general sessions (with messages delivered by a three-person speaker team) and designated times set aside for projects to complete as a couple. The "Date Night" on Saturday gives you and your spouse the opportunity to spend a romantic evening alone.

 

Check-in on Friday starts at at 5:00 p.m. and the event starts at 7:00 p.m. The weekend will conclude on Sunday at 12:35 p.m.

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.
