Awana Closing Program

Tonight we had our Closing Program for our church's Awana Club. Awana stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, and comes from II Timothy 2:15. The kids have sections to pass, which are Scripture memorization mostly, and also Christian service projects and other things. Hutch is in the Cubbies group, and did a great job working this year. He finished his book, and got a little Cubbie Bear award. Great job, Hutch!
Haydn is in the Sparks group, and he got an extra special award. There were only 2 kindergarteners who got it! He and Elaina passed their book, their extra credit cards, an older book, and a Workbook. Their leader said that they had a hard time keeping these two busy, and that they passed over 100 sections! We are so proud that Haydn has a desire to learn about and memorize God's Word. He worked extremely hard, and it was so good for him to get recognition at the program! Yay, Haydn!John helps with the 5th and 6th grade boys, and he even got to speak. Super, John! I am a secretary, and I took pictures tonight! It's always bittersweet for the end of the Awana. It's nice to have the summer off, but we look forward to starting next fall. We celebrated a great year by going with Grandma Nancy to DQ!
