Bring a Friend Alternative - Recite a Verse

Bring a Friend Sections

As part of the mission of Awana, clubbers are asked to share their faith with friends and/or family. “…whose goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ.” {Part of the Awana Pledge} They do this through bringing a friend or two to a club night. Sometimes this just does not work out, so to substitute for that section requirement, clubbers are asked to recite a verse(s) instead of bringing a friend(s).
