With half our time remaining in this AWANA year, it’s a great time to assess your child’s progress and identify next steps to continue his/her spiritual growth. For some that may mean adjusting schedules to ensure school work is complete, so that Sunday can be a day of church, family time and AWANA. For others that may be finding new ways to help your child memorize verses, beginning daily devotions and prayer together, or working with your child to establish specific goals appropriate for him/her to work toward.
AWANA has set verses to music which can be found on the internet. The books of the Old and New Testaments, can be especially challenging, so both are linked below.
AWANA curriculum for each grade can provide a good basis; Truth and Training is tailor made for Bible study and prayer.
For those planning to complete their book this year, laying out a schedule now, will help make this plan a reality. One simple approach would be to count the sections remaining and divide that number by 14 to determine the number of sections he/she would need to complete each week. I actually recommend dividing by 12 so that there is a little margin in case sickness or other things preclude sticking to the plan completely. We understand that all God’s children are unique and encourage you to help your child set achievable goals for the remainder of the year.
Please let us know if you have questions or desire additional resources or ideas to help your child “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).
