If your clubber is in the Puggles, Cubbies, Sparks and/or TnT clubs at the conclusion of AWANA each Wednesday please come into the building to pick your child up. We do this for your child’s safety so we know who is picking them up and so they are not standing in the Foyer waiting for someone to pick them up. Please be sure your child knows who is picking them up.
CHILDREN"S CHRISTMAS PROGRAM
Sunday, December 11 @ 7:00 PM – Come join us for this annual special night, as our children lead the celebration of Christmas in drama and song! Come celebrate Christmas through the eyes of a child!

Sunday school for all ages at 9:15 am and children’s church for preschool through 5th grade during the 10:30 am service. A nursery is available during both hours. We hope you will join us!
WINTER CANCELLATION POLICY FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHTS.
With winter right around the corner, if bad weather persists on a Wednesday, The staff will meet together and decide by 3pm if Awana and all other activities will be cancelled. PLEASE check your email after 3 pm and/or check Channel 2 or 7 for Church cancellation notices to find out if we’re still having Awana and Bible study. Closing of your clubbers school does not mean that church activities are cancelled! All cancellations will be emailed to parents, and posted on channel 2 & 7 cancellation list. You can also call the church office for information
Enjoy the Christmas break, and don’t forget to thank our wonderful Awana Leader staff who are so faithful in serving our AWANA club. Without these faithful servants we would not be able to minister to so many families and assist them in raising their children in the word of God.
We pray that you will enjoy your holiday season with your families for the next two weeks of break and look forward to seeing you back January 6, 2016 in the New Year!
