Tacky Tourist Night – April 20th

Tacky Tourist


On Wednesday, April 20th at Awana it is going to be Tacky Tourist Night!

Spring is here and that means Tourist Season here in Charleston. Come dressed in your best tourist wear (hideous of course) and let’s play tourists at our church!

Costume should include Bermuda shorts, Hawaiian shirt, socks with sandals, camera hanging around neck, and a hat to protect you from the sun.  Don’t forget the smeared on sunscreen!

Modesty always applies, and prizes will be given to the best dressed. Have fun and enjoy your stay!

Store Night & Fruit Night

This week at Awana is Store Night. With each store night, we try to bring in donations for the homeless ministry. This week we are asking clubbers to bring in small applesauce and/or fruit cups (like what would go in a lunch box). Be sure to send your clubber with something to help out.

For the store, we no longer give out Awana bucks.  To save the burden of keeping up with the bucks, we have converted to a points system, and each clubber’s points are managed in our system.  The leaders will advise the clubbers of their points when they come to store.
