STRATEGIC TRAINING FOR LOCAL MISSIONS
Sunday, August 20, 9 am, Worship Center: Any individual or Community Group is welcome to attend!
Since our church is on the doorstep of one of the largest and most transient local mission fields in our area (Missouri Western State University) we want to be a church that invests in this mission field. We believe that the biggest asset our church has in reaching college students and young adults with the Gospel is YOU! If you’re interested in learning more about this mission field and how you can be a part of discipleship and mentoring relationships with college-aged students, please come on Sunday, August 20. We will share some practical tools for disciple making and discuss several ways for you (and your family) to be involved.

AWANA IS COMING!
Would you like the opportunity to change the direction of a child’s life? The mission of Awana is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him. Although this might sound like a complicated process, it starts with adults like you simply listening to and interacting with a child as they recite their memory verses. You don’t need to prepare a lesson, speak in front of a group, or do a cartwheel (although the cartwheel might be fun!) Just faithfully come on Wednesday evenings to listen to kids one-on-one, ask questions, and share what God is doing in your life with them—this is our greatest need. It’s not scary or hard. But it can impact a child and even a family for eternity. Contact Chris Ellis or Jenny Binder (email@example.com, text or call 660-442-6027) with questions or to volunteer.
Awana Worker Training: Sept. 6, 6pm new workers, 7pm returning workers
Awana Kickoff: Sept. 13, 6:30-7:30pm
GOOD NEWS CLUB NEWS
The after-school Good News Club will start back up in September. Are you interested in learning more about this ministry and serving with us? We meet once a week on Tuesdays from 3:15-4:30. During club we sing songs, hear missionary stories, memorize verses, play games, eat snacks, hear a Bible story followed by a response time. The club is designed to reach those that don't yet have a personal relationship with Christ as well as help those that do grow in knowing Him. If you are a teen or adult wanting more information contact Sara Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org).
