The Awana Grand Prix is a Pinewood-Derby-style racing event in which clubbers race small wooden cars they craft themselves with the help of a parent or other adult.
Clubbers create their very own Grand Prix race cars from kits, which are available for $3.00 each, consisting of a block of wood and a set of wheels and axles. Kids will enter their custom cars in a design competition, and then go head-to-head with other clubbers’ cars on race day!
Our Grand Prix on will be held on Saturday, February 21, 2015. We will kick off at 12:00 by having lunch together while kids check in and do final prep work to their cars. Then our design competition judges will inspect each car, and the first races will begin soon afterward.
This is an incredibly fun event for kids and parents, and we know you are going to have a great time. We look forward to seeing you at 12:00 on Saturday, February 21st!

It hurts to lose someone.
Find help at GriefShare.
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.
How GriefShare Works
It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.
This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”
Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
Video Seminar with Experts
Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments and on-location video.
Support Group Discussion with Focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.
Workbook-Based Personal Study and Reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
We look forward to starting a new Griefshare group on Wednesday, September 17th, at 6:30. If you are interested in being part of this ministry, please contact our church office or submit your information below.
Tanner West is the 9 year old son of Brannon and Ann West. Tanner is the youngest of three children, his older sister and brother are Kaila and Colton Kirkpatrick. College View has been his home church his entire life, except for the three years that his family lived in Texas. Tanner was baptized into the church in June of 2013, shortly after making his profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
Tanner is a very creative kid; talking to him is always a lot of fun. When asked what his life ambitions were, he said he wanted to play soccer for Yale University, move to Canada, and solve the Rubik’s Cube. His favorite subject in school is Math, and he says this is partially because he has a very funny teacher and partially because he knows and can understand things that involve numbers. When he gets home from School, he likes to watch “Win, Loose, or Draw” on the TV and play with his two best friends, Alex and Hudson. Tanner is also writing an 8 page paper on the state of Arkansas, just for the fun of it. He loves learning new things, and shared that he has learned that Arkansas has the only Diamond mine that is open to the public.
One of the things that Tanner says he likes most is spending time with his dad. Brannon is a pilot, and tanner loves flying with him, saying, “I’m his co-pilot!” Sometimes, Tanner even gets to take over the plane’s controls. Brannon and Tanner have flown to several places together, including New Orleans. But they don’t just take to the skies together, Tanner also loves to go with his dad on Motorcycle trips. He says they rode to Illinois together last summer, on a trip that lasted several days. Tanner says that trip was a lot of fun, but he did get tired of sitting on the bike all day. It must have been worth it though, because he is hoping to make another long motorcycle trip in the future to visit a friend who moved to Michigan three years ago.
It is great to have Tanner as part of our church. If you have not gotten to know him yet, you should find an excuse to talk to this young man for a few moments. It will be worth your time.
