LITTLE FALLS — The AWANA Club sponsored by the First Baptist Church of Little Falls recently enjoyed a fun night, as Captain Diggin, portrayed by Larry Alkinburgh, gave the lesson on worship.
Diggin had a special helper, John the Baptist, as portrayed by Lee Lamphere.
Since AWANA began in Little Falls, there has been a piggy bank for the club members and leaders to put pennies in. Once the bank is completely full, a pizza party will take place to break the bank open and count the pennies. The money will be sent to a Christian school in Vianopolis, Brazil. An anonymous donor gave $50 in penny rolls to be put in the bank. Every time a member completed a section during the program on Jan. 12, they were allowed to take one roll of pennies, open it and feed the piggy.
Before AWANA began on Jan. 12, a group of TNT club members arrived early to practice for the annual AWANA quizzing, which will take place in Syracuse on Jan. 25.
Also on Jan. 12, Sparks member Lucas Evatt earned his first book award, the Hang Glider.
AWANA is a non-denominational club open to any and all children, pre-school through sixth grade. There also is a Trek group open to seventh and eighth grade students and students in grades 9-12 enjoy Double Edge. All of the groups meet every Sunday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. AWANA meets at Mohawk Valley Christian Academy and Trek and Double Edge meet at the Little Falls Family YMCA.
