This is a busy time of the year with clubbers working hard to finish sections in their books, learning verses, and having lots of fun in club. We also have a lot of fun club events and activities going on this month; we hope that you and your clubber(s) will have fun participating with us in these events and activities.
MISSION PROJECT We have been collecting Nickels & Dimes in a special Awana Bank each 2nd Wednesday of each month. The money raised will go to our Awana Missionaries to help support the work they do to help reach kids with the gospel of Christ. Please encourage your clubber to bring in some change for the bank as we will present the monies raised to our missionaries Wednesday March 15 as they will be visiting and assisting us with the race.
