Dear Parents and Awana Clubbers,

It’s time to get ready for another great year! We are excited that you are considering having your child attend our Awana Club on Wednesday nights. Awanas starts on Wed. 9/13 at 6:00 p.m. (new time!). Mark your calendars! As always, all events will occur at Wye Bible Church (WBC).

As you may have heard, this club is one of thousands of Awana Clubs in churches around the world. The International Headquarters is in Streamwood Illinois. These church-based, community programs are open to all children regardless of faith or home church. Each club meeting consists of three parts: games, achievements and Bible time. The club groups are:

  1. Cubbies: Three-four year olds
  2. Sparks: Kindergarten – 2nd graders
  3. T&T Ultimate Adventure: 3rd & 4th graders
  4. 4. T&T Ultimate Challenge: 5th & 6th graders

Fees:  While the church supplies our facilities and equipment, we ask that each clubber pay dues to help defray the cost of special supplies, treats and handbooks. The dues for the 2016 – 2017 year are:

One child – $30.00

Two children – $45.00

Three or more – $60.00 (cap)

Fees should be paid within thirty days of the start of the club. Please speak with the AWANA secretary (Laura) if you need any other arrangements.

Achievements:  Your child will bring home a booklet which is the first step in AWANA achievement! (Returning members will work in the book they were working on last year, or if they completed their book, will receive a new one.) We hope you will help your child complete this booklet within the next few weeks. After completing the booklet, your child is eligible to earn more awards and purchase his / her uniform as a member of AWANA Club. We want to work with you in providing balanced physical, social, mental, and spiritual activities for your child.

Cubbies: Ages 3-4 Sizes S-2XL – $12.50

Sparks: Grade K-2 Sizes S-3XL – $12.50

A more detailed calendar can be found on the next page.

Our last meeting will be May 16. Also, we follow the Queen Anne’s County Public Schools Inclement Weather Policy. If school is cancelled for the day or ends early due to weather, we will not have Awana that evening.

Sick Child Policy:

It is the goal of WBC to provide a healthy and safe environment for all children. Parents are encouraged to be considerate of other children when deciding whether to allow their child(ren) to participate in WBC programs when they are displaying symptoms of communicable illnesses (including a runny nose). Children who are observed to be ill will be separated from the other children and the parent/guardian will be contacted to pick up their child(ren). Additionally, children must be fever and vomit free without medication for 24 hours before returning to any activities.

 

In closing, if you currently do not have a church home, we invite you to visit our church. Sunday School meets at 9:00 a.m. with classes for all ages. The worship service for children and adults meets at 10:30 a.m. For more information, please contact the Wye Bible Church office at (410) 827-6650. We invite you to come as a visitor and leave as a friend.
