WHAT IS AWANA CLUBS?


AWANA Clubs is an outreach ministry with the goal of reaching boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him. AWANA uses the Bible to teach our young people to honor God and learn how to serve him through applying His Word to their lives. It is an exciting time for the clubbers. It will also be an exciting time for you as you see the children memorizing God's Word, hiding it in their hearts, (Psalm 119:11) and applying it to their lives.
The AWANA name is an acrostic derived from 2 Timothy 2:15

"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth."

WE'VE DESIGNED A THREE PART PROGRAM TO MAXIMIZE YOUR CHILD'S ATTENTION, ENERGY AND TIME.


1. FUN AND EXCITING GAMES unique to the Awana program, that allow many kids to participate no matter what their skill level. No sitting on the sidelines for 15 minutes at a stretch, and no partiality. Everyone gets a lot of "floor time."

2. SMALL GROUP TIME with a caring adult leader. No getting lost in the crowd here. Your child receives individualized attention as he or she works through an introductory booklet and a handbook.

3. INTERACTIVE LARGE GROUP SEGMENT between an adult leader and all the kids in your child's Awana club. Boring? Hardly. Awana leaders go the extra mile to help your kids understand the Bible and how it applies to their lives in an exciting and challenging way.
