Registration for the 2012-13 Ramona Awana Club year will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 5, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Grace Community and Mountain View Community churches.
Awana is a non-denominational Bible-centered program for kindergartners through 12th-graders. A worldwide ministry, Awana exists to share the gospel of Christ with boys and girls.
Kevin Springfield, commander of Ramona Awana, said it is open to all youth. “Although we meet at both Grace Community and Mountain View Community churches during the year, we have children from many different area churches who attend,” he said.
Ramona Awana is divided into five age-specific clubs:
•Cubbies are for boys and girls age 3 to 5.
•Sparks are for children in Kindergarten through second grade.
•The Truth and Training club is for third- through sixth-graders.
•Trek is for seventh- and eighth-graders.
•Journey is for those in high school.
During the school year the club meets once a week from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Special events include the Awana Grand Prix, the Awana Olympics, and Bible Quiz.
Theme nights such as crazy hair night, backward night, and the popular pie eating contest are held throughout the year. The Ramona club is one of the largest chapters in the county. For more information, visit ramonaawana.org.
