Awana is a weekly ministry which provides a fun environment for children and youth ages 3-18 to learn God’s Word. Each week, Awana provides teaching and training to develop strong moral and spiritual values, helping ‘clubbers’ learn about the reality of God and the truth of the Bible.
Awana meets from September through May on Sundays from 5:00 – 6:45pm. Our vision is for children learn to know, love and serve Jesus Christ! Registration is ongoing and kids are accepted throughout the year. However, acceptance in the program is based on the numbers of leaders volunteering in the class.
All Awana parents/guardians are requested to serve in some capacity. Your weekly commitment makes Awana run with excellence. The best volunteer for your child is a volunteer who is present each week. Registration fees are $45.00 before July 1 and $55.00 thereafter.
A typical night at Awana is broken down into 3 segments:
Game Time – A key principle of Awana is that Awana is exciting and FUN! Every Awana meeting involves high-energy, active games with lots of team competition to foster community and unleash clubbers’ natural enthusiasm.
Handbook Time – Using achievement-oriented learning segments, Awana handbooks emphasize the importance of God’s Word in knowing Him, living according to His Word, and standing for the Gospel. Clubbers meet individually and in small groups with their class leaders to discuss what they learn in their handbook lessons and to recite the verses they’ve memorized.
Large Time – involves awards and group Bible study that is tailored to the ages of the clubbers and supports the lessons they learn in their handbooks.
Additionally, special theme nights throughout the year cultivate a spirit of fun and community, and clubbers are encouraged to invite their friends.
The greeters will give you a map and indicate where you need to drop off your student. A greeter may guide you to the initial class.
Awana Check-in opens at 4:30 pm every Sunday. Check-in stations are located on the first and second floor. If you’re visiting us for the first time, you will need to fill out a quick registration card to receive your child’s entry sticker. The sticker serves two purposes:
Kids are pick from the final destination as they travel during the night to different areas. The printed schedule will guide you.
We would love to have you join the team! There are many ways to serve. Training is held at the beginning of each Awana year. Our church policies require that people involved in ministries with minors need to complete the following steps:
