We have an important event coming up in the life of our Children’s Ministry and want you to be a part of this exciting time! Save the date for our AWANA Kick-Off Night on Wed, Aug 16 from 6 - 7:30 pm in the Gym. Families will be able to enjoy food, inflatables and other fun activities, but most importantly, register their children and grandchildren for the 2017-2018 Club Year.

AWANA is a local church sponsored program where children can enjoy exciting games and activities, meet new friends, learn about God, and memorize His Word. Club meetings consists of several parts including handbook time, bible story time and game time. AWANA stands for: Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” Our goal is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him. The four AWANA clubs offered here at FBC Lawton are:

·Puggles: 2 years olds (must be of age by Aug 1st)

·Cubbies: 3 & 4 years olds (must be of age by Aug 1st)

·Sparks: Kindergarten - 2nd grade

·Truth & Training: 3rd - 6th grade

How can you as a church member serve our children and guests at our Kick-Off Night? Volunteer to help serve food or greet new families as they come to register. Interested in helping with AWANA throughout the year? Come to our AWANA meeting on Sun, Aug 6 at 2pm in the Fellowship Hall to learn more. If you have any questions about serving please contact the church office.
