Parent Newsletter: It’s Important

Communicating with parents is so important!  We want them to be aware of what’s going on in our club. It helps to know the upcoming theme and incentives, and gives information about all the awesome information Awana has to offer families.

In the rush of the evening it can be easy to forget to give each parent a newsletter.  Maybe it would help to tuck one inside of each handbook.

Our website (  is great way to find the newsletter.  Let parents know this tool is available too.


Awana offers so many helps for families! Check them out…they’re very helpful!

Calling Clubbers

Making a weekly call to each of the kids in your group is a wonderful little ministry.  It just takes a few minutes to make a child feel special, receiving a phone call, and it helps them see that they are an important part of our club.

It’s also a good way to get to know other parents and build relationships with them.

Not sure what to say during your weekly call?

  • Ask the clubber a question, like “What’s your favorite ice cream?”
  • Ask them which sections they’re working on in their handbook
  • Talk about the upcoming theme night or the counsel time message from last week

A minute or two can impact a child’s life.  Thanks for making the time for a few short calls.
