WHAT IS AWANA?
Awana is a fun club that reaches kids for Christ through relational, Scripture-rich experiences that lead them to know, love, and serve Him. The goal of AWANA is to train children to live their lives as “one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
AWANA is divided into three clubs: Cubbies, Sparks, and Truth & Training. Cubbies is for kids ages 3 by December 1 (starting kindergarten in two years) through age 4. Sparks is for kids in kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades. And Truth & Training is for kids in 3rd grade through 6th grade. This club is further divided into two groups: Ultimate Adventure (3-4 grades) and Ultimate Challenge (5-6).
WHAT DO WE DO AT AWANA?
The AWANA night consists of three parts: Game Time, Handbook time, and Large Group Time. 1) Handbook Time encourages children to work through their personal handbooks, learning and memorizing the Word of God. Upon completing the entrance booklet, clubbers will be able to purchase a handbook, uniform and earn awards. 2) Game Time on the unique AWANA game square builds excitement for learning God’s Word. 3) Large Group Time brings Sparks and T&T clubbers together to sing, hear Bible lessons, and receive awards they’ve earned.
COST: Many expenses for AWANA are covered; however, we do ask clubbers to pay for their handbooks, uniforms, and weekly dues. If you find the expense is keeping your family from participation, please talk with a leader, and we will do our best to help.
Dues: Clubbers pay dues of 50 cents each week. This develops a sense of responsibility and helps offset expenses.
Handbooks: Clubbers may, and are encouraged, to buy their own handbook after completing their entrance book. Cost of the handbook is $10.
Uniforms: Clubbers display awards earned in handbook time on their uniforms. Cubbies and Sparks – $12; Truth & Training Shirts – $17; Families pay full price for the first uniform, then ½ price for siblings.
