Welcoming Winter: A Great Time for AWANA

As the weather reminds us that it is indeed Winter in Virginia. This Sunday begins the second half of our AWANA year.

On January 26, gym time will include a sweet treat, intended to encourage the children to work extra hard to prepare their verses/lessons. We provide a scoop of ice cream for everyone and an extra topping based on the work completed. For those with dietary restrictions, be sure to let Norah know by January 24, so we can provide suitable alternatives.

Commander’s Corner

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).

Time to prepare for the 2020 AWANA Grand Prix

The 2020 AWANA Grand Prix will be held on Saturday, March 7. The event will start at 1 pm in the Capital Baptist Church Education Building's gymnasium and is a great opportunity to invite family, friends and neighbors. There will be three racing divisions (Sparks, T&T, and Unlimited). The “Unlimited” category will include any Puggles or Cubbie (with a parent), teens and leaders. Ribbons will be presented to all children who participate and trophies will be awarded for first, second and third place finishers for speed and design in each competing division.

Clubbers are encouraged to design, build, and paint their cars at home or they can attend the Grand Prix Build Day on Saturday, February 8 between 12:30 pm and 4:30 pm in the Capital Baptist Church Education Building gymnasium. For the Build Day we will have tools and volunteers available to assist children (with a parent or other caregiver) to complete simple designs or to cut out and begin finish work on more complicated designs.

Official Awana Grand Prix Car Kits can be ordered for $8 each and come in four different styled kits.  For those participating in Build Day, orders must be placed by January 26.

For additional information about the 2020 AWANA Grand Prix or the Grand Prix Build Day contact Norah at 703-200-8677 or by email at
