Calvary Baptist to host Awana clubs

Calvary Baptist Church is scheduled to begin hosting Awana clubs, a nondenominational ministry, for children ages 3 years old through sixth grade at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays starting Sept. 10 at the church, 1050 Yampa Ave. The acronym Awana stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, from 2 Timothy 2:15.

Weekly Awana club sessions feature three segments: game time, handbook time and large group time. Children earn awards based on their work. Large group time consists of singing, puppets, Bible stories and lessons based on Christian principles.

For more information, call Janet Wright at 824-5222.
