What is Awana?
The name “Awana” (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed) is from 2 Timothy 2:15: “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
Awana is a totally engaging, age-appropriate evening of Bible teaching, activities in the gym, fun competition and more. Healthy friendships, adult guidance, Scripture memorization, and encouragement are all part of the incredible Awana experience.
We’re going to learn the basics of loving God, loving people, and helping others do the same. And we’ll do that through consistent and positive training on how to thrive in group settings.
Ages 4 & 5 (not in Kindergarten)
Kindergarten through Grade 2
Grades 3 – 5
What does a typical Awana night look like?
The clubbers meet all together to begin each Awana Club night with songs and prayer.
This is the time when each club has their Bible lesson; lessons are tailored to each age group. The kids have a great time learning about Jesus!
During this time the children are divided into small groups to give them the opportunity to learn and recite verses from “sections” in their books; each child works at their own pace!
The clubs rotate into the gym for game time; this is a fun time for the kids (with their leaders!) to interact and play.
At the end of each meeting the clubbers join together to celebrate what they have learned and their accomplishments. Awards are given out at this time.
What do parents do during Awana?
There are Bible studies for women and men that takes place at the same time as the Awana Clubs. We invite parents and grandparents to stay and get a “mid-week-pick-me-up”!
Awana is also a great time for parents or grandparents to be involved in the Spiritual development of their children. Please contact Pastor Tim ([email protected]) if you would like to talk about ways that you can be an Awana team member.
Is there a registration fee?
The $20 registration fee (per clubber) helps our church with the costs involved with providing the weekly program and provides for one handbook. Each clubber has the option of purchasing a club uniform ($10). Additional handbooks may be purchased ($10) throughout the club program when a clubber is able to complete more than one handbook per year. Please let us know how we may be of assistance with the registration fee: payment plans and scholarships are available!
