Last night was the closing ceremony for AWANA. For anyone who does not know what AWANA is, it is a Bible club for kids where they meet weekly learning God’s word, memorizing scripture, playing games and fellowshipping with other kids. We have participated since Grace was a Cubby. 3-4 year olds are “Cubbies”, K-2nd grade are “Sparks” and 3rd-5th grade are “TNT’s.” Our kids love Wednesday nights at AWANA! More info about the program can be found here.
Last night was the closing ceremony. Grace earned her first book award as well as silver award. She completed her whole book, plus some extra work for the silver award. Luke completed his second book, the review of his second book, and an extra credit book! John completed his second year of cubbies and next year will move up to Sparks. After the ceremony there was a cookie party with friends. It was a great night!
