King’s Kids Bible Club Adopts AWANA Curriculum

awanaAfter researching a number of curriculum options for the 2016-2017 King’s Kids Bible Club program, the CEFC Children’s ministry committee felt led of the Lord to transition into the AWANA curriculum and activities as King’s Kids started back up for the school year on September 18.

Several training sessions have prepared the volunteers for the new program, and there were a number of children pre-registered, with hope of more dropping in.

If you know of families with children ages 5-12 (grades K-6) who are interested in participating in AWANA in town, please get this information to them. Registration forms may be picked up either before or after the Sunday morning church service, or you can call 935-7770 for information between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

King’s Kids AWANA meets on Sunday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the school year and typically follows the school calendar for holiday and other breaks.

King’s Kid’s Bible Club Day is Changing 1/24/16

Because the Tuesday evening time frame was not meeting the needs of most of the families whose children have been attending the King’s Kids Bible Club, it has been decided that the group will return to Sunday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. beginning January 24, 2016.

This week Tuesday – January 12 – will be the last Tuesday King’s Kids gathering. So put January 24 on your planner for the change and please help us spread the word.

God has been blessing his children’s ministry, and we are pleased to continue to offer King’s Kids to the Chewelah community. Thank you for your flexibility and commitment to these young boys and girls. We hope this change will mean that even more boys and girls from our community will be able to attend King’s Kids Bible Club!
