|Welcome to the group on DeviantArt!|
I am a certified AWANA Sparks student leader. I saw the lack of an AWANA group, and I thought to add to the ministry by making this group.
But, there ARE rules, like with anything you'll ever do.
1. Never reveal your real name! Initials are fine if you are comfortable with it. As you may know, those on the Internet may not be whom they say they are. (In fact, I may be a 40 year old man with ungodly intentions! I assure you, I am not, but I'm sure you see my point.) Do not reveal your address, city, phone number, e-mail, or any other personal information! If you want to reveal your state/country, than that's OK. This 'Internet safety' stuff may seem like old news, but even so, accidents can happen. So, general rule, no personal information. 'Rob M. from TX' or 'T.R. from Ohio' is enough.
2. Be respectful! Heard of the Casting Crowns song, "If We Are the Body"? (Of course you have.) Well, the same thing goes here. If we are the Body, why would we use our mouth--er, hands and keyboard--to say mean things? Simply respect others' opinions--you'll find it much easier and fun to be online when you're nice.
Note: The co-founders spot is reserved for any AWANA Commanders (if you trained in the AWANA Commander Collage, that's awesome) that want to join. They'll take care of the group if I'm away, and generally be the leaders of the group--they ARE my superiors.
So, enjoy yourselves, and God bless!
