My Little Cubbie Bear

This is Leightyn's first year in AWANAs. For those who have not heard about AWANAs, here is a brief summary off the AWANAs website.

"The Awana club for preschoolers is built on two premises:
• Young children can and should receive spiritual training.
• Home is the primary place for spiritual training.
Our preschool program meets these needs through …Fun – and lots of it!Awana is fun with a purpose – to reach and train kids for Jesus Christ. Games, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand".

Leightyn's Cubbie book has assignments for home every week. She works on Bible stories, activities, and a memory verse. When she gets to class Wednesday night, she is responsible for sharing her verse with the class and showing her home activity. During class, she also gets to see a Cubbie Bear puppet show, sing songs, listen to a Bible story, play games, and have a snack. When she learns so many verses, she gets a patch to put on her AWANAs vest. She says that she is now "cool like her friends".

Leightyn absolutely LOVES AWANAs. She always is asking if it is Wednesday....time to see Cubbie Bear. I caught her in the car the other day teaching her verse to Mylea.

The video below is Lei saying her verse for this week.
"Call His name Jesus, He shall be great." Luke 1:31
So enjoy the video.
