Younger children have enjoyed a swim party, balloon party and Vacation Bible School, as well as activities planned for them each Sunday during the worship time.
Our choir, under the direction of Daniel Paulson with Jana Gabby as pianist, enriches our worship service each Sunday and we are additionally blessed to have the children’s choir as well. Other musical groups include Scrap Metal (an all male vocal ensemble), Notions (an all female vocal ensemble), as well as DUMIE (Dixon United Methodist Instrument Ensemble) and Driftwood (recorder ensemble) frequently adding to our music and worship program.
There are several special fellowship groups that meet on a regular basis. For women there is The Grace Circle that meets every second Monday of each month at noon and Jubilee Circle meets on the third Wednesday evening for dinner and fellowship. For young adults there is a Twenties and Thirties group and for older adults there is the Fifth Saturday Gathering. The men of the church meet the first Saturday morning of the month for breakfast and fellowship.
Our pastor is a part of the Dixon Ministerial Association and we actively participate in community services such as the Dixon Family Services.
