Awana stands for “Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed” - 2 Timothy 2:15. Awana meets every Sunday evening from late August to the end of May. AWANA starts at 5:45 and ends at 7:15 p.m. This is a fast-paced 1 hour and 30 minutes for children 3 years old through 6th grade. Similar to Boy Scouts or Girls Scouts, Awana clubbers receive handbooks and uniforms. Clubbers recite memory verses to their leaders on Sunday to pass sections in their books and earn patches and badges for their uniforms. Clubbers also earn “Awana Dollars” when they pass sections that can be spent at the “Awana Store,” once every couple of months.
Awana is broken down into three groups: Cubbies (3- and 4-year-olds), Sparks (Kindergarten through 2nd Grade), and Truth and Training (3rd through 6th grade). Our Cubbies are taught engaging lessons, recite their memory verse to their leader, play awesome games, and make fun crafts, which reinforce the lesson being taught that week. For our Sparks and Truth and Training, their club time is broken down into 3 parts. First is Handbook Time: children work in their workbooks, memorizing verses and learning Bible truths. Second is Council Time: each child is taught a lesson from God's Word. Third is Game Time: the children compete for points in relay-style games around the Awana Game Square, on one of four teams (red, green, blue, or yellow). Each week the children are rewarded with awards and incentives as individuals and as a team for achieving goals in the program.
