Awana at HOME Assignments!

WHBC Awana is moving to “telework!” 

Awana at HOME Assignments - April 8
Awana at HOME Assignments  - April 1
Awana at HOME Assignments  - March 25

For the next several weeks, we want the kids to continue progress on their books while being discipled at home. We did lose a week, but we will make it up over our planned Spring Break week (April 1). Each week we plan to release a lesson assignment for Cubbies, Sparks and T&T. We want to ask you, as parents, to work through all the requirements of the lesson with your kids. So, by next Wednesday, March 25, try to complete the attached sections. Once any lessons have been completed and the required verses recited, please send a photo of the signed-off section to the appropriate Director as listed in the email you received, so we can record it. Other catch-up sections may also be completed in the same way. Our prayer is that this will be a spiritually meaningful experience for both you and your kids during this unusual time.

Secondly, we are sending this email to any parents for whom we have email addresses. We know our list is not complete. If you know someone who did not receive this email, can you forward it to them, and ask them to let us know their email? Please email theheights@whbc.org if you are not receiving emails. Thank you for your help!

You can let me or a club director know if you have any questions. Thank you for your participation in Awana this year. I look forward to being able to finish it out strong with you.

Letter from WHBC Awana Director, Brian Hartsell
March 17, 2020


Awana Parents,

Due to the COVID-19 situation, Awana will be canceled for the next 3 weeks at WHBC. We will continue to monitor the situation, but plan to restart back again on April 8 where we will have our Celebration Night for Verse-a-Thon. Any outstanding donations can be mailed to the church or placed in the offering boxes in the next couple of Sundays. Please make sure to designate any funds for "Verse-a-Thon." It would be very helpful to turn those donations in sooner rather than later to help with our planning of Celebration Night.

If your child’s ability to finish their book will be hindered by these cancellations, let me or a Director know, and we will find a solution.

As of now, Cubbie Bear Fair is still planned for April 8. 

April Schedule of events:
April 8 - Cubbie Bear Fair
April 8 - Verse-A-thon Celebration Night
April 22 - Last night to finish sections
April 29 - Awana Recognition Night

Join us this Sunday for worship – 9:00am and 10:30am
