Awana Outreach Events (AG, BQ, GP, SAR, CAR) Transition

Area Wide Awana Outreach Events (Bible Quizzing, AwanaGames, Sparks-a-Rama, Grand Prix and Sparks Camp-a-Rama) are experiencing a change starting this fall!
Check back often as this information will be updated during the club year!

Area Wide Awana Outreach Events (Bible Quizzing, AwanaGames, Sparks-a-Rama, Grand Prix and Sparks Camp-a-Rama) will now be hosted 100% by churches rather than the Awana Missionary being involved in the planning. This will allow us to focus more on training Awana leadership and developing relationships with churches to strengthen your Awana ministry.

Since the awards for all these events are now in the Awana catalog a church can run an event for their church or host an event and invite two or three other churches to come or they can attend an area wide event which will be
sponsored by a church while working with an event specialist.
This will help churches to take their ministry into the community, boost Awana participation and help churches to minister to families!

Churches and Awana Commanders will be sent information concerning the events in their area by the Event Specialist heading up these events. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. This will be a year of transitionand the Tri-State Missionary team is here to help with the transition.

Two NJ Mini Conferences Cancelled

Due to absence of any registrations, the conferences scheduled for 8/19 in Allenwood and 8/21 in Magnolia have been cancelled. There are still six other dates and locations available for these mini-conferences, but we must have registrations for at least 12 people five days in advance in order to hold them. We cannot travel to the locations without knowing if people will be attending.

Awana Ministry Conference season is just about here!!

August, September, October and November – what happens during these months?  School starts and so does Awana!

You are probably starting to prepare for the club year – so, is the AMC on your Awana calendar?  The AMC is a vital part of ongoing training for all staff in Awana.  Even your children’s ministry workers can benefit from the many breakout sessions that are offered.  Here is a list of the AMCs coming up……
