Thank you for allowing your child(ren) to attend our AWANA program. We look forward to another year of fun, learning and growing in Christ. In order for things to run smoothly, we would like to pass on some important information. If you have any questions feel free to discuss them with your child’s leader, one of the check-in staff leaders or myself, the AWANA Commander. You may also contact me at the church office at 407-422-0758.
Our AWANA program covers the following ages:
Cubbies 3-5 yrs old (must be 3 by September 1st)
Sparks – Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade
T&T – 3rd through 6th grade
The hours for AWANA are Sundays from 5 – 7 pm. We would like for the children to arrive no earlier than 4:45 pm and be picked up no later than 7:15 pm. When arriving with your child(ren), please come to the sign-in table in the fountain courtyard to sign them in. Once you have signed your child in, they will then be dismissed to the sanctuary for opening ceremonies, which will begin promptly at 5 pm.
When picking up children, please go to their respective rooms
(T&T – room D201, Sparks – rooms B201-204, Cubbies – room B108.)
If you have children in multiple rooms, please pick up in the following order:
The children are not allowed to leave until an adult comes to get them. We require this for the safety of the children.
While there are minimal changes in the Cubbies and Sparks, there are some significant changes to note for T&T. Due to the fact that T&T has outgrown their previous location, the first change to note is the T&T room is now located in rooms D201 & D202. The second and most significant change is that AWANA has begun updating the T&T books. As a result, all clubbers in T&T (regardless of grade / # of books completed), will be working through the same book. An additional information page about the T&T book update will be provided to parents of T&T clubbers. Please feel free to contact the T&T director, Danielle Miller, at 615-525-1501 for any questions regarding these changes.
There are several ways that you can help AWANA be a successful program. The first is to work with your child(ren) to help them learn their verses in their handbooks. The children who do the best in AWANA are those whose parents take an active part in encouraging them to work in their handbooks each week. The second is to encourage your kids to help support our AWANA GO mission emphasis. For every $10 collected, the gospel is shared and long-term discipleship is provided to unreached / unchurched children in the United States and around the world. We think that by giving on a regular basis, the children learn an important lesson about supporting God’s work. This is true whether they give a nickel each week or a dollar. We encourage you to communicate with us as often as you like. You can reach me by e-mail (email@example.com) or by phone (407-422-0758). The calendar page will come in handy when you need to know what events are coming up soon or what the next theme night is going to be.
For His Glory,
Richard Miller / Family and Youth Pastor
