Amy and Wendy Display their Awana Citation AwardsMonday, May 24, marked the completion of 12 years of hard work and service for Amy and Wendy.  That day they were each presented with the Awana Citation Award.  For young people involved in Awana, earning the Citation Award is the ultimate achievement. The Citation is their reward for thousands of hours attending group meetings, working with children, getting involved in their communities, completing 10 years of biblically grounded curriculum and learning more than 700 Bible verses.

The awards ceremony was held at Grace Baptist Church in Santa Clarita.  Wendy was the first of three students to speak.  She shared what the various stages of Awana meant to her spiritual growth and development.  Amy delighted all by playing the piano before and during the ceremony, including two of her own compositions.

Emily Displays Her First Year Awana Trek AwardNot to be outdone by her little sister, Kelly, on May 17, our Emily completed her Awana year.  Emily finished her book, and a plaque for her accomplishments.  She, too, went above and beyond and did the extra credit and earned a certificate and pin for her efforts.

Emily had a blast this year making a DVD of the year's accomplishments (including her participation on the Bible quizzing team, and the game team).  The video was presented at the awards ceremony, and the audience enjoyed it tremendously.  She's already thinking ahead to making a video for next year.

Way to go Em!

We've just completed another year of the AWANA program and Amy & Wendy have earned the distinguished Timothy Award!

Emily, Amy, Wendy, and Kelly show the awards they have earned in AWANA

On October 28, Pine Mountain Christian Community Church held its annual AWANA Awards Program.  

We are proud of all of the girl's accomplishments.   We are especially proud of Amy & Wendy, who have completed 6 years of the AWANA program and have each earned the Timothy Award a year early.

To earn the Timothy Award, a boy or girl must memorize 393 Bible verses, attend club 120 times, and complete 16 activities on missions, patriotism, health and service.  This award is based on the Bible verse found in 2 Timothy 2:15.

This month, Kathy and I accepted the responsibility to lead the Cubbies in our local AWANA Bible club.

Here I am, about to bring Cubbie bear (a puppet) out of his house, as part of our nightly skit.  We have about fifteen 3-4 year olds in our class each week. It is a delight to be teaching with my sweetheart.
