What is AWANA?
  AWANA is a Bible~based youth program for kids three years old through the 12th grade. The emphasis is on Bible memorization. AWANA is found all over the world and has chapters in many third world countries. This unique program is a proven outreach ministry that gets children involved in learning God¡?s word and developing a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.

The three segments per club meeting encompass Handbook© time, Game© time and Council© time.

Handbook Time

Club members use this time to recite Scripture that has been carefully selected to emphasize God's plan of salvation and how to live daily as Christians. Clubbers work with one Leader throughout the whole year and the leadership ratio is about 1 Leader for every 6 clubbers. Children benefit from the relationships they build with their Leader. Leaders attend training courses to help them work with the children in club. Clubbers earn awards they wear on a uniform that encourages participation in all facets of club.

Game Time

The key to AWANA's success is often stated as GAME TIME because most clubbers will tell us this is their favorite part of club meeting. Clubbers participate in exciting team games on the AWANA Circle. Competition is not emphasized in the early grades, but gradually will increase with the higher~grade levels. AWANA games are fun! Clubbers learn teamwork, sharing, and discipline.

Council Time
  Council time is when the AWANA Pastor shares a Gospel message with the clubbers. Many times these messages tell stories about real life situations. Clubbers learn about missionaries and how God sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. Audio and visual aids catch a child's attention and convey a spiritual truth that they can remember for the rest of their lives

Special Activities

Examples of the special activities at the different age levels are: CUBBIES (pre~school ages) have an animal theme and puppet shows. SPARKS (K~2) has the Sparks?A~Rama and Nature Outing. TRUTH & TRAINING (3rd~6th grades) have AWANA Games and Bible Quizzing. Trek (Jr. High School/Jr. Varsity) & Journey 24/7 (High School/Varsity) include Bible Quizzing and AWANA Games.

AWANA ~ A Family Oriented Outreach
  At AWANA, children not only learn about the Bible and God's plan of salvation, but they also learn about witnessing to others. AWANA is a program the whole family can participate in. Parents become leaders. Children become clubbers. Clubber's friends are invited and in turn start learning Bible verses. Their parents help them memorize the scripture and come to know God's truth. Children are encouraged to attend church. They also earn awards they can proudly display on their uniforms. All this leads to greater church attendance and more people exposed to the gospel.

The acronym Awana comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.

Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
