Jesus commands us, as Christians, to reach the lost with the good news of the gospel.  AWANA Clubs is a wonderful opportunity to teach children of the community and help them build a growing walk with the Lord.

A substitute van driver, along with 2 van riders to keep attendance and order, will be needed for the Wednesday Van Ministry.  If you can help, see David Fernandez or Casey Reed.

Pray for the AWANA ministry and if you will volunteer, see Bro. Jeff Jasso, he has a position just for you.

Registration forms and calendar for the year are available at our Visitor’s Center.  Pick one up, fill it out, and bring it with you this Wednesday night for all children aged 2 years through 6th grade.
