(Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed)
2 Timothy 2:15
We have a program at Calvary United Methodist Church that is specifically for all our pre-school and elementary children. It is called AWANA which stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15.
AWANA has designed a three-part program to maximize your child’s attention, energy and time:
1) FUN AND EXCITING GAMES, unique to AWANA that allow kids to participate no matter what their skill level is.
2) SMALL GROUP TIME, with a caring adult leader. No one gets lost in the crowd. Your child receives individualized attention as he or she works through an introductory booklet and then an age-specific handbook.
3) AN INTERACTIVE LARGE GROUP SEGMENT, where kids meet together to sing, hear a Bible lesson and receive awards. AWANA leaders go the extra mile to help your children understand the Bible and how it applies to their lives in an exciting and challenging way.
We invite children ages three thru sixth grade to be a part of this program. They are divided into three age group clubs:
CUBBIES: ages 3-5;
SPARKS: Kindergarten thru 2nd Grade;
and T & T or Truth and Training: 3rd grade thru 6th grade.
The program runs from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Wednesday evenings.
To encourage attendance we will also offer SUPPER at 5:30 pm which we will also share with the youth from the Calvary Computer Program (CCP). We will attempt to share the menu ahead of time in the church newsletter, Calvary Connections.
Thank you for the opportunity of working with your children and disciple them for the Lord Jesus Christ. Please call the church office (701-255-4281), Darla Ziegler our Commander (701-223-8369), or myself with any questions that you may have.
