Maybe not literally, but it can certainly open doors of opportunity for you to bring the life-changing message of the gospel to families in your community.
The Awana Grand Prix™ is a Pinewood-Derby®-style racing event with a 45-year-plus track record of fun and excitement. Not only that, the Awana Grand Prix provides an ideal platform for churches to present the gospel message.
Clubbers create their very own Grand Prix race cars from kits consisting of a block of wood and a set of wheels and axles. They then go head-to-head with other clubbers' cars on race day. Prior to the start of the race is a time for a brief devotional, in which the message of the gospel can be presented. The top designs and fastest cars receive special awards while all competing clubbers earn a participation ribbon.
Non-churched family members, especially dads, can't resist a fun event that involves their children (and a little woodworking). Your club will gain a much needed "mid-year boost" of interest an involvement. Most importantly, you'll sow the seeds of the good news and bring parents into the greatest winner's circle of them all.
