Below is one great opportunity for Children's Missions Day. Hope you can bring your children. We hope that every church will participate in Children's Ministry Day is some way.
Awana Grand Prix
Build cars. Share Christ.
The Awana Grand Prix™ is a Pinewood-Derby®-style racing event with a nearly 50-year track record of fun and excitement.
Awana Grand Prix is more than just building a race car. It helps to build a bond between kids and their parents as they work together to design the best car ever. Dads especially will be drawn into the creative excitement of helping their sons and daughters win.
And winning is what it's all about. Not only winning the race – but winning moms, dads and kids to Christ! The event provides churches with the perfect place to present the gospel message.
The Awana Grand Prix was the tool that God used to draw one dad to salvation. He is now my right-hand man in ministry and the game director for our club. I just wanted to put a plug in for the value of the Awana Grand Prix to reach dads and men.

The kids love seeing their cars race across the finish line, and even the parents get into it, too! All the children got a ribbon for their hard work! It was so much fun!

New Hope Baptist Church, Aurora, Illinois
Interim Pastor Dillon Evans
Praises: We have had 3 baptism services since the beginning of October including December 6th where we had 8 Baptisms. (Total is 11) We also dedicated 4 children to the Lord on the 13th. We had our first ever Thanksgiving Eve Service this year and are about to have our first ever Christmas Eve service in a few days. We are adding a Wednesday night prayer service beginning in January.
We also have a brand new website at www.newhopebaptistaurora.com which has had over 5800 visits to the website since it was launched a few months ago. We are seeing a real online engagement with our sermons. We also had a night of worship featuring the gospel blue grass group On Tyme.
A big praise to God for healing my wife Nina, the Dr. who is a believer declared it a miracle. Her surgical wound from the hysterectomy became so badly infected they called in the at home care nursing people to address it. They were going to use a wound V.A.C. on it, by the time the medical equipment company delivered the device (3 days later) the wound was completely healed and now she is down to one follow up visit next week.
Please pay for Karla Pitts, she is undergoing Chemo for Cancer, please pray for Wayne Hill's health. Pray for our Christmas Eve service, pray that we can reach even more people in our community this year. Pray that Christ is glorified in all that we do. Pray for Tom & Juanita Pitts health, final prayer request is for wisdom as the church is looking to build a new fellowship hall, we have a small house next to the church that has been converted to a fellowship hall but no longer can meet the needs we have. Multiple times this last year we have had to have members eat outside because we do not have the room. Along with the wisdom please pray for God's provision in providing the necessary funds to accomplish this task.
