AWANA: Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed – 2 Timothy 2:15
November has arrived. The air is starting to cool off a bit, and the leaves are changing colors. This time of year, is great for having fun at Awana, enjoying time outdoors playing in the leaves, and taking time to notice all God’s blessings. In the midst of change and uncertainty October was a busy month. We have been busy studying, learning bible verses, playing cool games, wearing masks, and sanitizing our hands. Our hearts are bursting with joy for what your clubbers have accomplished of late. Many of the clubbers have completed their start zones and moved into their regular handbooks earning them their very first uniform.
Congratulations to all, what an awesome job, keep up the Great work!
As Thanksgiving approaches, let’s take time to remember and thank God for our many blessings, and also remember those who may be struggling right now. We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to all the people who come together each week to make Awana happen! We appreciate each one of you,
- Dues (50¢ per wk.),
- Handbook with at least one section ready,
- Bonus: theme night participation, monthly newsletter questions!
Dress for success when deciding what to wear to club. Remember games may include running, sitting, crawling, rolling, jumping, crab-walking, or lying on the floor.
For safety, sneakers are required to participate in game time.
- THIS MONTH WE’RE DOING OUR TWO ANNUAL FALL OUTREACH PROJECTS
- The first is a food drive to help the hungry in our area. All items will go into our Church pantry. And then distributed to local families in need. Bring your nonperishable food items to club, and then watch our donations grow & the shelves fill up!!
- Secondly, we’re participating in the “shoebox” project again this holiday season, helping Samaritan’s Purse deliver these donated items to needy children around the world. Shoeboxes will be due later this month!
(Empty shoe boxes needing to be filled are located in the Sanctuary).
Don’t have a church home? We welcome your family to worship with us.
