Awana kicked-off the New Year with our Come Discover Awana family fun event. Many hot dogs were devoured, popcorn was munched on and snow cones were slurped. Kids bounced and hopped to the squeals of delight in the bounce house while others were getting wet slipping and sliding through the water slip and slide. Come Discover Awana allows an evening for families to come together to socialize and fellowship while their children are able to explore the kid friendly venues and food provided.
The evening also allows parents to be introduced to our clubs and meet the Directors and Leaders who have dedicated their Wednesday nights to serve the families of Oroville and to share God's Word weekly with all of our clubbers. During this time, 53 clubbers were registered from 33 families.
Our first official club night began on September 26. The clubbers were wowed to see our new game tarp. Our night started with the clubbers on their respective color line ready for Opening Ceremony, which includes club news, flag salutes and prayer. Then the clubbers were off to their age appropriate clubs for an evening of engaging games, Bible memorization and a Bible lesson time.
On this night, we had 21 new clubbers join our club from 11 families. It is not too late for you to come check out our Awana clubs or to invite a family to come join. We have new clubbers joining us all throughout the year.
We have been blessed to have great leader coverage. However, our Sparks are still in need of two adult leaders. We are also in need of a team that would be willing to tear down the sanctuary chairs on Tuesday and back together by Thursday. So if you feel God leading you to serve in one of these capacities, please give us a call.
All of us serving in Awana are looking forward as Equipped Leaders to Reach Kids and are ready to help to Change the World.
Serving Christ Together,
Tim and Laura Giordano
Awana Ministry Director
