What is AWANA?
AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed – 2 Timothy 2:15. It is a program that makes memorizing the Word of God a little easier and more fun for children. Awards (which are displayed on vests/uniforms) are earned by completing sections in a handbook. The fact is, getting Scripture into the hearts and minds of our children impacts them both now and for the rest of their lives.
What age groups do we serve?
Cubbies – 3, 4 and 5-year-olds
Sparks – Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd graders
T & T – 3rd-6th Grade
What is a “normal” night of AWANA?
Our club runs the typical School year calendar from September -June. Each Sunday night the club starts at 5:00 p.m. and ends at 7:00 p.m. The meeting is divided into three parts: Handbook time, game time, and teaching time. During handbook time, the children recite their memory verses. Memory work needs to be worked on at home and learned before the children come to Club. The leaders are available to help, but we strongly recommend that your child know their next section before arriving to each week’s class. In game time, children must wear tennis shoes and jeans/joggers or loose-fitting shorts.
Is there any cost?
AWANA dues are $25 for 1stchild, $15 for each sibling. If your child starts at 2nd semester (January-June), dues are half the cost. Uniforms and handbooks are purchased after your child completes the Entrance Booklet. We strongly encourage all parents to pre-register before the first night.
