AWANA Volunteers Needed!

Do you have a passion for discipling children in the Word of God, and are you looking for a place to serve? AWANA is looking for several committed people to work with children (ages 5-12) each Wednesday night from 6:25-8pm, helping them memorize God’s word and teaching them how to apply it to their lives.
We are also looking for one or two couples to come alongside us this year, in training to take over the leadership of the program. This is an important ministry to our children and the greater Sioux Falls Community.

Back in July we spend a week serving with Bridge of Hope Church in Kansas City, KS. At the breakfast, the team will also give an update on their trip and the impact it had on their lives. Finally, as an added bonus, the Pastor from Bridge of Hope, Luther Eatman and his wife Lanita, will join us that weekend.
