Truth and Training Thursday

It's crazy to know that another AWANA year has started back up as it seems like it was just the other day that we had finished up.  But sure enough, September came and went and that meant the kick off to another fun filled AWANA year.

This year we are seeing some major changes.  For starters, the youth outreach leader and head of the AWANA program, Jerry, left us to go to another opportunity.  However, we have a new leader in Janet T who has been involved with the AWANA program and an amazing leader for many years who has stepped up into Jerry's place.  We also have new leaders for the T&T groups who really seem to enjoy the children and the program.

Alyssa returned to being a full fledged Sparks Leader and will be taking care of the Blue Team kiddos. She has 7 kids in her group at the start of this year but being that we are on a military base, that number will likely change as families PCS in or out.

Ashleigh is in her third year of AWANA and this year she is working through Book 1 for the T&T Ultimate Challenge.  She will also be wearing the blue shirt this year although she is currently still wearing her green shirt until her new shirt arrives.

This week's theme was Crazy Socks Night.  Ashleigh wore her dad's kilt socks (one of each color) while Alyssa opted to just wear socks that did not match.

For this week, Ashleigh completed Challenge 1:0 and 1:1 from her book.  Challenge 1:0 was basically her agreement to commit to working hard to learn her verses as well as my own commitment to help her each week with her verses.  Challenge 1:1 focused on How do we know that the Bible is true and learning how God's word is the absolute truth. 

For this week's memory verse, Ashleigh had to memorize three short verses.

But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God.   -  Jeremiah 10:10a

Your word is truth..  -  John 17:17b

For I trust in Your word.  - Psalm 119:42b  

She did a great job getting all verse word perfect and was signed off for the week. 

To prepare for next week she will be working on memorizing 2 Timothy 2:15 and Proverbs 30:5-6.  Depending on how well she does with those two verses, we may or may not attempt to also add 2 Peter 1:16.
