Last night, we had a little over 150 (153 I think) people attend our AWANA Grand Prix night. There were 50 kids participating, pretty good I think, in the evening. We had countless volunteers for the evenings serving food and drinks, along with ministering to the hearts of so many in our community.
Or AWANA program is not for our “church kids” but is largely made up of kids from the community. We encourage our AWANA teachers to see themselves as missionaries to the kids that come into the doors of where our church meets. AWANA may be a child’s only encounter with a local church, so we see this ministry as very important to our mission.
At any rate, I’m super proud of our volunteers and workers at ole FBC Bellville, they worked hard, and it was a fun night!
