Please make a note. There will NOT be Awana Club on Wednesday, March 14th. We encourage you to attend the following Missions Conference at our church that night.
Mark your calendar now! Jarod, an IMB missionary to Asia, will be joining us March 11-14 to lead a missions/discipleship conference at Northwood! He’ll be preaching on March 11, and each evening at 6:30, Sunday through Wednesday, he’ll be sharing his work in Asia as well as equipping us to be on mission to make disciples in our local context. Jarod is a dynamic, Christ-loving man, and he is a great communicator! Through Jarod’s ministry in Asia, thousands of people have trusted Christ and been baptized, and thousands of churches have been planted. God has used this man in amazing ways! And, I know God will use him to ignite your faith and give you a passion for global missions and discipleship. Mark your calendar now! This is going to be a life-changing week in the life of our church. Watch the linked video that highlights Jarod’s ministry in Asia.
Here are the events in February for Awana.
February 7 – Regular Club Night
February 14 – “What I Love About Awana” Poster Night
Clubbers will be provided a piece of poster board, materials and markers to make a poster of their favorite parts about Awana. Posters will be displayed around the church for all to see.
February 21 – Regular Club Night
February 28 – Nerd Night
Get your geek on! Clubbers should come dressed as their best nerd!
Several weeks back each clubber was sent home with a Green & Red shoebox to fill for Operation Christmas Child. This Wednesday night the boxes are due back, so we can get them sent off to kids in foreign countries so they can have an excited holiday season.
Please get your boxes as full as you can, label them, and provide the shipping and return them to club this Wednesday night, November 15th.
Our church is a collection center for other churches in the area. If we have additional items, our clubbers will also be helping the relay center at club pack additional boxes.
The last two years the Awana clubbers have contributed over 100 boxes each year. Let’s top that mark this year!
If you still need a box, you can still get them this Sunday in the Worship Center Lobby.
Here is a list of suggestions for your box.

Thanks for your participation & support!
As you might have figured out, over the last couple of weeks, we now have a check-in at the Children’s Building desk, in addition to the check-in station in the FLC lobby. If you just have Puggles or Cubbies, please check them in at the Children’s Building to avoid traffic and lines in the FLC Lobby.
I also want to thank you for helping us maintain security in the Children’s Building lobby for checkout. We want to minimize the amount of traffic down the halls to provide safety and security for all our clubbers and families. Continue to bear with us as we continue to polish the check out procedures.
Remember Puggles & Cubbies check out at 7:30pm, where all other clubs check out at 7:45p.
Here are our planned events for Awana in October.
Our big drive is for clubbers to bring in money for the entire month for our Awana Missionary, Bill Fugel. We will have 5 gallon buckets in both check in locations. Let’s fill it by the end of the month!
This Wednesday night (Sept. 20th) at Awana is Inside Out Night. Clubbers are encouraged to wear their clothes inside out to remind us that God looks at us from the inside out!
What an awesome first night of Awana we had last night at Northwood Baptist. We had 99 clubber registrations and 87 clubbers that attended. There were so many new clubbers and parents! Unfortunately, I did not get to meet all the new clubbers and parents, so bear with us as we learn the new clubbers and parents.
This leads me to next week. At club next week, Sept. 6th, please make sure that at least one (1) parent sticks around in the gym after check-in on the bleachers. You will get to witness & participate in our opening ceremonies. Following that, there will be a parent meet and greet with Commander David and Pastor Tommy. We are going to go over a few things with you, and then have a few minutes to get to know one another. This meeting will last until about 6:30 PM. Please make sure you stick around.
We look forward to getting to spend a few more minutes with you so you can get to know us and vice versa. See you next week!
Online registration for the Awana 2017-2018 year is now open. Go to awana.northwoodbaptist.com and click on Registration in the top right menu to begin the registration.
This year’s fee structure has changed. For the first & second clubber, the price will remain $40 each like last year. However, if you have more than 2 clubbers, the household maximum registration fee will be $80.00. So 2+ clubbers will remain $80, so make sure to choose the correct option when registered.
Online registration requires a card for registration. There is no longer a pay in person option. Please keep this in mind when you begin your online registration and have your card of payment available.
If you have a payment hardship, please contact Commander David at church or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awana begins on Wednesday, August 30th at 6:00pm. We looking forward to another awesome year.
