Things you will want to know about the happenings at SRBC’s AWANA ministry.
Welcome Back!! Happy New Year Awana Families! 2023, It's a whole new year! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break and are ready to get back to club and studying God’s Word! Can you believe we are already halfway through this Awana year already? We are looking forward to the upcoming year and all that we will learn about God’s Word alongside your children. Let’s get fired up for 2023 and make it an awesome year!
Thank you for recognizing the importance of Awana and having your children attend this ministry. Please continue to work with them each week on their memory verses so that they can learn God’s awesome word. Thank you for allowing us to teach your child about Jesus each week through songs, Bible verses, and games. They are such a blessing to us.
Please have your child bring their Bible each week. Clubbers earn points by: Attending: club, Church, and Sunday School.
BRINGING Bible, Handbook, dues, water bottle.
PARTICIPATING IN games, & theme nights.
WEARING their uniform, & sneakers.
PASSING Sections in my start booklet/finishing it and sections in my handbook and completing them.
They can spend their points they earn in the AWANA store.
Please help them with verses at home. We work with them each week but need the
extra help to succeed.
Parents you can help make Scripture memory simple, easy and fun.
Here are some suggestions:
- Make a fun tune or hand motions for the memory verses.
- Trace a verse in shaving cream.
- Make flash cards, with verses on one side and Scripture references on the other. Lots of colorful markers and paper can make the task a breeze. Ask your child to draw a picture of what the verse means alongside the verse.
