Drive In Movie Night – December 21st

Finding Dory

This Wednesday Night, December 21st, is Drive In Movie Night at Awana. The movie will be Finding Dory, and will start promptly at 6:00 PM. Here is the Focus on the Family Movie Review.

Sparks and T&T will watch this movie in the gym. Puggles and Cubbies will meet in the Children’s Building to watch a movie fitting for their age group.

Clubbers and Leaders are encouraged to wear there pajamas, and bring their sleeping bags & pillow as they will be laying on the floor.

Clubbers can also design boxes into vehicles to have the true Drive In Movie effect.

We will have a small movie snack for the clubbers to enjoy during the movie.

Movie Night will take the entire night, so we will not have Game, Handbook, & Counsel times as we do during normal club Night. Clubbers can say verses to leaders before or after the movie should they have something to get signed off.

Following this week, we will have 2 weeks off from club. We will not have club on the December 28th or January 4th. We will return on January 11th.

Operation Christmas Child Boxes Due Tomorrow

OPeration Christmas Child

Several weeks back each clubber was sent home with a shoebox to fill for Operation Christmas Child. Tomorrow 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 tomorrow night, November 16th.

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 tomorrow!

Thanks for your participation & support!
