Blessings from the Tri-State Awana ministry!

REACHING KIDS!

1)  “Dear Missionary”
I am 7 years old and asked Jesus to be my personal Savior. Thank you for Awana! I love hearing stories about Jesus and the Bible. We prey for you!
Love,
Awana Spark!

2)  A grandaughter of one of our Tri-State Awana missionaries led a friend to the Lord on the school bus!

3)  We recently visited a church in the Philadelphia area – our Large Group message was a skit of the Christmas Story (Luke 2) where we used several clubbers on stage. Afterwards, 2 clubbers (in the skit) trusted Christ as Savior; one of them approached us to say “thanks” – and asked: “I found out that I really don’t know Jesus, can you show me how to have Jesus as MY Savior?”
Afterwards, we encouraged the clubber to ‘tell the Commander’ – and that started a series of testimonies from this clubber to the leaders! Praise the Lord!

Updated – Awana Outreach Events (AG, BQ, GP, SAR, CAR) – Reach out to your Community!

Check back often as this information will be updated periodically!

Awana Outreach Events (Bible Quizzing, AwanaGames, Sparks-a-Rama, Grand Prix and Sparks Camp-a-Rama) will now be hosted by churches or event specialists rather than the Awana Missionary being involved in the planning. This will allow the missionary team to focus more on training Awana leadership and developing relationships with churches to strengthen their Awana and Children’s ministry. Continue reading
