What Is Awana?

Awana is a Bible-centered children's program that makes Scripture memorization fun. Its purpose is best stated in the Awana Pledge: "to reach boys girls with the gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him." On arriving at a typical Awana gathering, the children are assigned to age-appropriate groups that engage in a variety of fun activities.

Assembly - Club night begins with a fast-paced, large group rally where clubbers enjoy music, pledges, and general announcements to start the club evening.

Game Time - The group is then separated into "clubs" where they engage in age-appropriate games that teach sportsmanship and values in team competition. (30 minutes)

Handbook Time - Bible verses and principles are presented through "handbook" instruction. The children study at their own pace, as they are given support and assistance from the club leaders. Awards are given as the clubber progresses through the handbook to further reinforce the learning process and encourage the child. (30 minutes)

Council Time - Each group meets as a separate club for a time of listening to a special Bible message and application, praise and prayer. (30 minutes)

Participation Costs

You may register your child at any Awana Clubs night. Register before Clubs begin at the Awana Table in the Gym Lobby. After Opening Assembly you may register your child at the Secretary Table at room 127. 

A registration fee of $15 per child ($45 maximum per family) is requested to assist with the costs of yearly materials, wards, special events' costs, etc. Scholarships are available.

In addition, children also need club uniforms and handbooks during the year. Uniforms for the club consist of vests (Cubbies and Sparks) or shirts (T&T) and should be worn to all club meetings. Most uniforms can be worn for 2-3 years before they are outgrown.

Uniforms are purchased after the child has completed the introductory memorization exercises in the Entrance Booklet. This generally requires 3-4 weeks of preparation and club participation.

Handbooks are vital to the Awana program. Handbooks provide Bible verses and principles through interactive instruction.

An Awana Secretary will provide you with a note containing details of uniform and handbook purchases when they are required.

Item Cost Description
Registration Fee $15  Yearly participation fee
(1-2 needed per year)
$9-$10 Children will progress through handbooks
at their own pace. Generally, 1 or 2
handbooks are complete each year.

Leader & Child

Partnership with Parents

In order for your child to spiritually gain the most from Awana your involvement as parents is essential.

Each week you should:
  • encouraging your child to attend each week.
  • coach them in memorizing their assigned verses in at least one section of their handbook each week.
  • mark their achievements in constructive ways.
  • communicate any special needs to leaders.
At designated times, clubbers receive extra Awana "Bucks" (or points) if their parents have listened to and initialed their handbook following a memorized passage. So you can help your clubber get Awana Bucks by doing Family Follow Up & helping them with their Handbook!

Together, we are partners in children's ministries. We welcome you to visit our club meetings anytime. If you are interested in becoming an Awana leader, a "Verse Coach/Listener," have questions, or need more information, please contact the Commander Paul Harrell or Scott Slaughter, Associate Pastor, Family Ministries.
