Children's Church/Sunday School
Children's church is offered during the Sunday morning services for children ages 3-5th grade. Children's church is dismissed at the end of the service.
Following the services, children are welcome to attend Sunday School classes beginning at 10:45am-11:30am. Classes for ages 4yrs-6th grade are available.
A staffed nursery is also available during the services for infants to children 3yrs old.
Activity bags are provided for children from the ushers to be used during the service.
AWANA is an international, nondenominational, Bible centered youth organization providing weekday clubs and programs for 3 year olds through 6thgrade. AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
AWANA exists to reach children and youth with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. The priorities of AWANA also include reaching parents and other family members with the gospel and training adults to minister to youth.
Your child will grow greatly in his or her knowledge of the Lord with each passing week. We will learn to sing for the Lord and be excited about the lessons the Bible has to teach. We will learn to fellowship with other children his age in a positive environment and will look forward to coming back to participate in this years program. As leaders, we are excited about having your children here! We hope you will be committed to bringing them each week so they won’t miss out.
Calendar: We will meet every Wednesday night during the school year with a few exceptions for school holidays. In case of bad weather, listen to one of the Fosston radio station for a cancellation announcement. Every effort will be made to have any cancellations announced in school as well. As a general rule, if school in Fosston is dismissed early due to bad weather, AWANA will automatically be cancelled as well. (Please note there are several Wednesdays this year when school will be out early for staff workshops. We WILL have AWANAs on those Wednesday’s unless weather prohibits it and then it will be announced on the Radio or you will be contacted personally).
Fees, Uniforms & Books: The annual fee per child is $30.00 each. This goes toward the cost of a club uniform, handbooks, and book bag. It also helps with awards your child receives as he/she memorizes verses. Scholarships are available upon request. Also, each new student must complete and pass the startup pamphlet and pay the yearly fee before he/she will receive a uniform, handbook, and book bag.
Handbook Work: Once your child receives his/her handbook, he/she should work on it at home each week. There will be Bible verses to memorize, and other little activities to complete.
Please help your child with this as much as possible. Drop-off & Pick-up Policy For safety reasons, we ask that you bring your child into the church when arriving. Do not drop them off in the parking lot. Children should not arrive earlier than 6:15. Also for safety reasons, it is your responsibility to pick your child up promptly at8:00. Please come into the church and get your child. We do not want to see any child injured by a moving vehicle. We will not be dismissing them without a parent/guardian coming in to get them.
Lost & Found A plastic tub in the hallway gets filled with items left at the church. Please check this for any items your child may have lost.
