Our Club News – November 2022
Volume 3, Issue 1- Things you will want to know.
Hello Awana Families,
November has arrived. The temperatures are up and down, and some trees are holding on to their leaves while others have littered them all over the place, guess fall is here!
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. Let’s not only notice but thank God for all he’s created and blessed us with. October was a busy month. We have been busy studying, learning bible verses, playing cool games, and earning points for the store. 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!
A Season of Thankfulness
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, you rock!
