6 Church Services and Youth Ministries Sunday 9:00am Sunday School (all ages) 10:30am Worship Service 5:00pm Revive (Sr. High) Wednesday 6:30pm AWANA / 180 (Jr high) 6:45pm Adult Prayer Meeting Dear Parents: FROM OUR AWANA COMMANDER: Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child s life. We are thrilled to have your clubber in our AWANA program and pray that we will be a blessing to your child and your family. The Bible tells us to train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). Our goal in AWANA is not only to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ but also to train them to serve Him in all areas of their lives. We seek to establish a strong biblical foundation which will help provide direction for their daily lives. We ask for your support in encouraging your child to complete their handbook materials prior to coming to club each week. This will allow us more time to help them apply the biblical teachings that they will learn. Please feel free to stop by and visit your child s club at any time. You do not need a special invitation to come and observe what is happening in AWANA. Robert Newby, Commander PARENT INFORMATION As a parent, you are essential helpers for your child to get the most out of his/her club. Please use the following as a guideline. Always encourage your child. They have more fun when Mom and Dad show interest in their accomplishments. Help your child attend AWANA each week and arrive on time. Consistency builds friendships, achievement, and selfdiscipline. Help your child follow their club s guidelines for finishing their handbooks. Cubbies work through one section a week, while the older clubs, Sparks through T&T, can work on up to 4 sections per week. Trek works on a Bible study each week during club. Attend major events. You are always welcome. Drop-off and pick-up your child at the following locations. All clubbers will be waiting inside for you promptly at 8:00pm. Cubbies Toddler Room Sparks Downstairs T&T Gymnasium Make sure they wear their vest or uniform shirt and bring their handbook, Bible, and dues each week.

7 CLUB NAMES, REQUIREMENTS, AND guidelines CUBBIES: The Cubbies program is for children not yet in Kindergarten who are 3 to 5 years old. The curriculum provides appropriate material for the two years prior to Kindergarten.

T&T: T&T is for 3 rd through 5 th graders. They spend their evening in Handbook Time, Game Time, and Council Time which deepens a child's knowledge about God and His Word.

Here are a few reminders to help make AWANA a fun place for your clubber!!!! 1. Be respectful of the equipment, building, and each other. Please treat your leaders and other clubbers the way you want to be treated with respect! 2. Come ready to be involved in all the activities. You will have more fun (and so will your friends) if you come to play, listen, share, and sing. 3. WALK everywhere in the building. Remember, church is God's House!!! You will have time to run and play in the gym. 4. When you have earned your uniform, wear it every week. Remember to bring your handbook and Bible every week. 5. Always listen for the voice of your leaders or director. When you hear the five-count begin, get quiet so you can hear instructions. 6. Stay with your group at all times. You are not to wander around the building by yourself. Follow the directions of your club, please. 7. Be very careful in the parking lot. Wait for Mom, Dad, or authorized adult to walk outside with you. 8. Come to club each week ready to have a great time. If you need any help, find a leader; they are here for YOU!!!
