MEET YOUR MINISTRY LEADER

Jeff Russom is our Children’s Pastor here at First Arnold.  When you see him, ask him to show you some of his silly and not so amazing illusions. Jeff spends lots of time with his wife, Shawne and their daughter,
Madison, and they love to hang out at the beach and with their fun pup Sadie! Jeff cares deeply about people
and demonstrates this through thorough planning and great attention to detail in everything! He can’t wait to
introduce you to all his friends in First Kids!

      WEDNESDAY EVENING AWANA CLUBS

      First Baptist Church of Arnold's AWANA Clubs is for children two-and-a-half years old (before 02/01/2022) through fifth grade. The goal of AWANA Clubs is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.

      “The name AWANA is an acrostic which stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" and is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. AWANA provides a special place for your children to make new friends, play exciting games, compete in rewarding and challenging contests, receive awards as reinforcements for their good performance, and have opportunities to learn and memorize God's Word, the Bible.

      Puggles recognizes the learning ability of 2 and 3 year olds by introducing biblical precepts at church and equipping parents to teach them at home.

      Cubbies are preschoolers born before 08/01/19. Cubbie lessons are designed to help Cubbies grow in their respect and love for God, His Son and His Word.

      Sparks® ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids, Kindergarten- Grade 2, to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ.

      The T&T (Truth & Training) curriculum teaches kids Grades 3-5 the truth of God's Word, and trains them to follow Him and practice His grace.

      Our 2022 – 2023 Awana Club year is from Wednesday, Sept 7, 2022 – May 10, 2023.  Our clubs meet from 6:30 – 8 p.m.  Click “Awana Manual” below for detailed information about our Awana Clubs
