AWANA ministry delayed until January

Out of caution for the more than 100 clubbers and workers involved in the AWANA ministry at Dixie Lee Baptist Church, we are delaying the beginning of the 2020-2021 ministry year until Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021. Many of our workers are senior adults and are therefore more vulnerable to COVID-19. Keeping our younger clubbers distanced was also likely an impossible task. The extra time will hopefully provide the opportunity for a promised vaccine and give DLBC leadership a chance to put necessary safety precautions in place. Please be praying that God will in the interim open other opportunities for us to reach families that are impacted by this important ministry.



What is Awana?

Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. For more information about Awana please visit the official Awana about page at

Dixie Lee Baptist Church has implemented the Awana program for 10 years. Over the years we’ve watched as kids have learned of the love of Christ, met Him as their savior, and grown in their walk with Him. It is because of these things that Dixie Lee Baptist Church is passionate about this ministry and what God continues to do through it.
