Dear Parents and all involved with the EBC Awana program,
This year will look very different in how we are able to function as a club. The church leadership, Awana directors and others have met and have worked out a plan we feel will be successful to open club this year and remain in compliance with the state requirements regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Clubbers will have the opportunity to do virtual club with their directors and leaders from home and still earn their awards. Beth Cummings, our Children’s Ministry Director, will be working with the directors to tape whole group time for each club, each week. We will be posting these on Mondays at 9am each week on EBC's Youtube Channel (you can subscribe if you'd like to get a notice as soon as a video is posted). There will also be links on the EBC website Awana page and on the EBC Awana Facebook page (please take the opportunity to follow that page now).
When your child has an attendance award portion in their book, watching these videos will satisfy that requirement. Your clubber may say their verses to you as they are ready, and you can sign off on them. We will have a leader call each week to check in on verses said, as well as take some time to connect with your child. This year may take a lot more parent involvement, but it’s a great opportunity to have great conversations about God and help your child as they grow in knowledge and understanding of him.
There will be opportunities to pick up your child’s awards at church during specified weeks at the end of each quarter.
Our hope is that we can still create an environment of excitement and commitment to learning verses and growing in Christ through this challenging time. We are all committed to making this a fun year!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give any of us a call.
Thank you for your support and commitment to Awana.
In Christ’s love,
AWANA begins October 5, 2020
Tuesday, September 29
We will have a drive by pickup at EBC so you can pick up your child's handbook and a parent packet for each club your child is part of. Come anytime between 6:30-7:30pm.
