This is our annual AWANA Grand Prix (Derby) race. Clubbers can purchase wooden car kits for $5.00 and create their own car design to compete on race day. Last year, we purchased a brand new aluminum track with computerized timer system which was very exciting. Cubbies, Sparks, and T&Ters all compete for a chance to win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in Speed or 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in Design. It’s a fun, family event! Purchase your car early so you have time to get it ready! Each clubber will receive a goodie bag with $5 AWANA for participating!

T&T clubbers (3rd–6th grades) can sign up to participate in the annual Rockford-area Bible Quiz Competition held at an area church in Rockford. Clubbers who sign up commit to coming to club at 5:15pm for 7 weeks to practice verses from their Handbooks. Leaders come early to work with the clubbers to help them be successful. Teams compete against other area AWANA clubs. This is a great experience for our older clubbers. First Quiz practice with Parent Meeting is Wednesday, January 18 at 5:15pm. Quiz Practice will be each Wednesday from 5:15–6:00pm from January 18 through February 22. We will have a final, extended Quiz Practice and Pizza Party on Friday, February 24 from 5:30–7:30pm at the church.

This is our final club night of our AWANA year. Just like we opened with a family event, our Closing Night is a family event as well. This is a chance to hear about our year, pass out year-end awards to our clubbers, celebrate together the accomplishments of our clubbers, and praise God for His faithfulness to this AWANA club. Instead of dropping off clubbers on this night, parents should plan on staying with their clubber to participate in this closing. All club levels meet in the Sanctuary this night. Refreshments will be served following the completion of this program downstairs in our Fellowship Hall.
