Our church has the Awana program for kids. Since Beth was 4 when we joined, she started going to the Cubbies class. She loved her teachers- Mrs. Kelly, Ms. Whitney and Ms. Mandy. Every week, we worked in her lesson book about a Bible story or Bible truth, and she memorized a Bible verse. Now, since our church teaches from the KJV, some of the verses were tough to read or understand the words, but we'd talk about it. In the short time (since March) she was part of the program, she learned 13 verses! I am so proud that she's hiding God's Word in her heart! She was so proud to earn patches for her vest through attendance and completing the lessons. Early May marked the end of Awanas for the year, and the church held a ceremony. Beth earned a certificate, a new patch for her vest and a cubbie bear for her vest. She was so proud up there with her class! Wow, she's tall!
I got her new stuff on pretty quick, and she let me take a picture.
Next year, she'll be in the Sparks class, and she can't wait!
