Wilton Center AWANA Club Returns For Fourth Year

September 14, marks the beginning of the fourth year of AWANA Club at Wilton Center Federated Church.

Tuesday, September 14, marks the beginning of the fourth year of AWANA Club at Wilton Center Federated Church. The club meets every Tuesday night during the school year from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Participation is free of charge, and any child from age 3 through sixth grade is welcome to join.

AWANA is a non-denominational Christian club for boys and girls. Each club night is divided into three sections: Worship, Book, and Game time. The name is an acronym for "approved workmen are not ashamed," a biblical reference from 2 Timothy 2:15.

Children love the silly songs, interactive plays and Bible truths learned in Worship time. There is no pressure during Book time. The children work at their own pace to memorize scripture and answer questions in their workbooks. Game time around the AWANA circle is always fun and includes scooters, relays, hula hoops and bowling pins.

Children earn points during the evening that can be used to "purchase" items from the AWANA store each night. AWANA is a great place for kids to have fun and grow in their faith at the same time!

Come out and meet the great team of leaders from Wilton Center Federated Church who love to share their faith with children. You and your children will be greatly enriched. Parents are welcome to stay every Tuesday night to visit, read a book, or watch all the activities. Bring the whole family. Bring friends. Fill up your car and listen to the excited chatter on the way home. AWANA is an awesome club that the kids will love to attend.

The great thing about AWANA is that you can start any Tuesday night and never be behind. Join now or after fall sports are over. It's never too late to stop by to check out the AWANA club program.

Wilton Center Federated Church is five miles south of Manhattan, ¼ mile east of Wilton Center, on Rt. 52. The church address is 14101 W. Joliet Rd., Manhattan. For more information, call the church office at 815-478-3923 or go to the church's web site at www.wcfclife.org.
