Church Theme for 2017


Today . . .

AWANA Interest Meeting

Parents of children preschool & grades 1-5 are invited to a meeting concerning the AWANA ministry to be held at 4:00pm in Room 109 for parents and potential volunteers. 

AWANA Clubs partner with families challenging the family to be the primary spiritual influencer of their children by providing a Bible-based framework for meaningful spiritual guidance as the children work through the AWANA Club age-appropriate handbooks.  Parents can model these Christian principles to their kids in an amazing way by volunteering in AWANA Clubs!
