From Dan & Heidi
Good evening! What a fun filled weekend we had. Thank you to everyone who participated in and volunteered at the Awana Grand Prix on Saturday! I think everyone had a great time. All of the cars looked amazing, so much work went into each car!
We also had a great store night last night. It is always encouraging to see how giving the clubbers are. There were 30 stuffed animals purchased for the SACK ministry (we actually ran out), $582 donated for Becci, and countless gifts purchased for friends and family. What an awesome night!
Our Awana Closing ceremony will be this Sunday! Clubbers will arrive at 3 pm as usual, check-in, and go to their leaders. Clubbers will then have around 30 minutes to finish up any unfinished work. Parents are encouraged to stay in the sanctuary during this time. We will be playing the Awana Quiz Show with all of the parents. All of the questions will be straight from the Awana books we have been working through this year! Around 3:45 we will start the awards ceremony.

Our heart is to continually pray for Awana. We would love for all parents to take a few minutes (wherever you are) each Wednesday at noon to pray for Awana, our kids, and leaders. We would also love prayer that leaders and clubbers stay healthy! We would also love everyone to be praying this week as kids share their faith! The heart behind this is to pray together for Awanas each week, even if we can't be physically together.
We look forward to seeing you all on May 1st for the Closing Ceremony! Let us know if you have any questions.
