What is Awana?
The name “Awana” (Approved workmen are not ashamed) is taken 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 ministry for children that emphasizes Biblical teaching that relates to your child’s age and experiences.
Game time features ultra-fun physical activity and competition that engages ALL children.
Scripture memorization, positive friendships, adult affirmation and encouragement are all part of an Awana ministry experience.
Throughout the program, we will learn together the basics of a relationship with God through consistent and positive training on how to thrive in team and group settings.
Another exciting Awana experience: awards and recognition are given to each child for their accomplishments!
Cubbies club is for girls and boys ages 4 & 5 (not in Kindergarten).
Sparks club is for girls and boys in Kindergarten through Grade 2.
T & T (Truth & Training) club is for girls and boys in Grades 3 – 5.
What happens at Awana?
The clubbers meet in the main sanctuary (auditorium) 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 our children’s ministry director, Carolyn Shoop, at 215-249-0879 or [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!
