The 2016-17 Awana club year will begin on Sunday, September 11th. The club will run at its usual time, from 5:45-7:30, and will be for kids entering kindergarten through sixth graders. Awana consists of three segments: game time (the kids' favorite, who can blame them), book time (when the kids memorize and recite their scripture verses), and council time (the weekly Bible lesson and songs). We also throw in a variety of themed nights in the year like Crazy Hat Night. Awana is open to the community, you certainly don't have to attend First Baptist to bring your kids to Awana, all are welcome.
In addition, this year we will begin our cooperative youth ministry with our neighbors down the street, Christ UMC. Kids from the two churches in K-6 will attend Awana, and those from 7-12 will be a part of the MS and HS youth groups led by Pastor Jonathan Smith of Christ UMC. We are excited for this opportunity to pool our ministry resources with our brothers and sisters in Christ as we together do Kingdom work. Looking forward to a great year of Awana!
