Awana

Awana stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15. The goal of the Awana ministry is to teach children who Jesus is, help them to learn the Word of God, and train them to apply the Bible's teachings to their lives. It is our desire to partner with parents in training children to know, love and serve God.

Awana meets every Wednesday evening from 6:15 - 8:15 p.m. during the school year for children ages 3 - 6th grade.

FAQs

 Are you new to Awana this year?  Or are you confused about something in the Awana ministry?  Check out our Frequently Asked Questions, and see if that helps!

1. Does my child need a uniform? Or a new uniform?  If a child is new to Awana or has moved up into a new club, they need to receive a new uniform in order to receive the patches and jewels that they earn.  However, a uniform is not required to participate in a club.  A uniform can be purchased by completing a purchase envelope and paying with check or cash and submitting the payment envelope to the Awana Welcome Desk.  

2. What is a "Theme Night"?  A Theme Night is an Awana evening where Sparks (K-2nd grade) and Truth & Training clubbers are encouraged to dress up or do something according to a certain theme.  Theme Nights include "Way Back Wednesday" where clubbers can wear something from the past like an old Awana uniform.  Or "Crazy Hair Night" where clubbers can show their wild side through crazy hair dos.  Participating in a Theme Night earns each clubber one share they can spend later at the Awana store.  Birthday Nights are a night when birthdays and half-birthdays that occur during that month are recognized by a club leader. All of our Awana Theme Nights are described on our Awana 2015-2016 Calendar.  

 3. What are "shares"? And what is the Awana store?  Shares are earned by clubbers to purchase items in the Awana store about two times each year.  Clubbers earn shares by completing handbook sections, participating in Theme Nights, wearing their uniform, bringing their Bible, bringing a friend to Outreach Nights, and may receive shares for exhibiting outstanding character during club time (at leader's discretion).  The Awana store is a designated room where the clubbers are able to spend their shares for various fun items that they can take home.  If you're child brings home some fun items after an Awana night, don't worry: it was probably because they spent the shares which they earned at the Awana store! 

4. When can we bring a friend?  There are two Outreach Nights on the yearly calendar when we encourage clubbers to bring a friend.  This is a great night to bring a school friend, neighbor, family member or an acquaintance that hasn't had the opportunity to hear the gospel.  We ask that clubbers only bring friends on these Outreach Nights to maintain a safe volunteer to clubber ratio.  More information about these nights goes out near these dates.

Who inspired you as a kid to really know God and follow Him?

We want our kids to say your name in 20 years!
 
Awana is a unique opportunity to build Jesus-focused relationships with kids:

  • learning Bible verses together with a small group of your very own
  • bonding with kids and leaders through great games
  • and helping boys and girls apply what they've learned from large group teaching

It is our volunteers who inspire kids from nursery through high school to really make their faith their own. 

And we would love to have you join the 44% of our team that is already signed up for next year, so that together we can inspire our kids to know, love, and serve Jesus!
