The First Baptist Church of Cedaredge, 370 W. Main Street, invites the community to an exciting program for kids between the ages of 3 and sixth grade. Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 13, AWANA will meet every Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8 p.m. during the school year, except for school breaks and holidays.
The acronym, A-W-A-N-A, comes from a Bible verse that says that Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. Founded in 1950, the AWANA ministry is an international, nondenominational, Bible centered ministry committed to the evangelism and discipleship of children and youth. The content of the AWANA curriculum is God's Word, the Bible. The goal of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to serve Him.
God has given First Baptist great facilities for AWANA meetings. The staff of over 20 adult volunteers comes excited about working with these kids every week. From age 3-sixth grade, kids have fun playing games, memorizing Bible verses, and participating in large group singing and teaching.
Because of generous contributions no enrollment fee will be charged but a small fee is charged to cover the costs of books, uniforms, and materials; but no one is turned away for lack of funds. Scholarship funds are available.
The First Baptist Church of Cedaredge is located at 370 W. Main Street. Most of the AWANA activities are held in Wick Hall on the alley behind the church sanctuary. For information please call the church office, 856-3830, Pastor Abbott, 856-3005, or the AWANA commander at 835-8490.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
