GREENVILLE — Awana begins its 21st year at First Congregational Christian Church (FCCC), 115 W. Fifth St. in Greenville, Sept. 20.
A Bible-based children’s ministry for preschool-high school, junior high and high school age programs begin at 5 p.m. inside the church while the younger groups begins at 5:15 p.m. in the activity building behind the church.
Parents are asked to escort their child in the first evening to fill out paperwork. Dues are just $1 per night or $25 for the entire year, and a handbook and uniform fee is also required. For those in need of assistance, FCCC offers a scholarship program.
The Awana evening consists of book work and Bible verse memorization, a Bible lesson and game time, and ends at 7:15 p.m.
Meeting every Sunday evening throughout the club year, many themes are incorporated. On Sept. 27, the church will host “Bring School Supplies Night” with all donated supplies being given to students at Woodland Primary.
Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.
“You do not have to be a member of FCCC for your child to participate in this ministry,” organizers said. “Also, if you don’t have a home church, we invite you to worship with us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. For more information on Awana or the other ministries of our church, call 548-3575 and speak with Pastor Ted McCurdy or our secretary.”
