AWANA helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
What is AWANA?
AWANA means “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” and is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. An AWANA club consists of: Game Time which gets kids moving with dozens of games and lots of fun, Handbook Time for clubbers to progress in their handbooks and earn awards by memorizing God’s Word and by completing activities, and Council Time for singing, Bible and object lessons, and receiving awards.
What are the different AWANA Clubs?
Our AWANA Program is broken up into three different clubs to fit every age group.
Cubbies Ages 3 and 4
Sparks Grades K-5, 1 and 2
Truth & Training Grades 3-6
Each clubber is encouraged to bring 50 cents weekly to provide treats, awards and supplies. They also earn points for their team by bringing their dues each week.
Handbook and Uniform
Each child starts out in an entrance book, which is the first step in AWANA achievement. Upon completion, a clubber is eligible to receive a uniform and a handbook to earn more achievement awards as a member of AWANA. Many of the awards are worn on the clubber’s uniform. Handbooks and uniforms vary in price for each club. We ask each clubber to purchase their own uniform and handbook. If this causes a difficulty, we can make arrangements for a payment plan, or some scholarships are available if you cannot afford to purchase a uniform. Clubbers also earn points for their team by bringing their handbook and wearing their uniforms each week.
The kids have a great time each week playing a variety of games. In order to keep clubbers from slipping during game time, we ask that all clubbers wear sneakers.
