Our church has made the difficult decision to cancel Awana for this coming year. After taking a careful look at our resource availability, it would have been difficult for us to run a quality and effective Awana ministry.
We thank you for the trust you have placed in us for the past few years. It has truly been a joy to serve your children and your families. Our prayer is that the seeds of God's Word that have been planted in those young hearts will continue to grow and flourish. We will be praying for your children, as we know this news will be dissappointing to them.
We would also like to apologize for not letting you know sooner. We know this impacts decisions you all have made about your Fall schedules. Please know that the delay in making this announcement was because we were praying and talking about how we could potentially make it work. Please forgive us for any way we have caused disruption to your family's upcoming schedule.
Finally, please let your children know that we love them and, more importantly, that Jesus loves them. We pray that you will continue to nurture a desire in their hearts to memorize the Word of God and remind them of their need for a savior in Jesus Christ.
