When does AWANA take place?
Wednesday evenings, 6-8 PM from September to May.
What does my child do at AWANA?
The kids meet in a large group at 6 PM for the Opening Ceremony. After that, kids will divide into their clubs (separated by age group), and move through three different rotations throughout the evening. During Handbook Time, clubbers will move through their AWANA book by memorizing and reciting passages of Scripture to designated leaders. Council Time is a teaching setting where clubbers will listen to a lesson taught by Council Time leaders about the Bible, missions, character-building, and more. The final rotation is Game Time, where clubbers will play AWANA circle games such as relay races, tug-of-war, dodgeball, and more.
What does AWANA cost?
The cost is only $20 per child, per year. Every child will receive a t-shirt, entrance booklet, and Club Book.
What is AWANA?
AWANA is an acronym for the phrase "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed," taken from the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2: 15, which reads, "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."
The AWANA program is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. Through God’s guidance and power, AWANA strives to reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world.
How old do my kids have to be to participate in AWANA?
We will hold AWANA Clubs for children ages 3 years through 6th grade. Cubbies is for preschool-aged children, Sparks for Kindergarten through 2nd grade, and Truth & Training for children 3rd through 6th grades. Boys and girls are separated into two separate clubs once they reach Truth & Training.
