On Sunday, May 19, our Awana club celebrated its end-of-year Awards Night. We are so proud of our clubbers! Thousands of verses have been learned this year, sowing the Word of God into the hearts of these children. 30 clubbers finished one (or more!) books this year and received special awards on Sunday.
Thank you to all the people who have worked so hard to help our children in their Awana time. In the first year Hope Valley hosted Awana, we averaged 30 children a week. This year, we averaged 57 children a week. This growth is such a blessing, but it also brings new needs. Some of our children have been in classes of 18 this year. There are always children who will excel regardless of the class size, but others need more assistance. Can you help our club next year? Can you be a teacher or regular helper? Please be in prayer about this. If you have any questions about what’s involved, please ask Chris or Joy Lawson or Jennifer Bowen.
