Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed – 2 Timothy 2:15
Hello Awana Family,
We’re on target for a busy February, even though the weather might be cold. (It is still winter
after all and … what was that ... you’re STILL praying for snow days off from school???)
We also have a lot of fun club events and activities coming up; we hope that you and your clubber(s) will have fun participating with us in these events and activities.

*Puggles & Cubbies do not need to purchase car kits they will be racing special cars in their racing class.
**Parents can also create and race or show a car in the open division.
Nickel and Dime Nights
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.
A very happy February birthday to these members of our AWANA family:
February 4- Kelsey H & February 27 - Robert L
*If we missed one, please let us know.
SOUP-ER BOWL NIGHT
Thanks to all who donated cans of soup to our pantry for this theme night. Great job! The soup will go a long way towards warming those who receive it this winter.
WINTER CANCELLATION POLICY FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHTS
Winter is here, if bad weather persists on a Wednesday, the staff will meet together and decide by 3 pm if Awana and all other activities will be cancelled. Please check your email after 3 pm and/or check channels 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! You can also call the church office for information.
