Awana clubs teach the gospel of Christ to children from preschool through high school. Throughout the program, children are rewarded for memorizing Bible verses and completing character building activities.
Younger children learn through games, crafts, and puppets, which are wonderful learning tools for this age. As they grow, children are introduced to small group interaction, community outreach, apologetics and life application of the gospel.
The AWANA Name:
AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and comes from the Bible verse 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.
Learning and Growing with AWANA:
Awana clubs typically meet weekly. Sessions are run by individuals with a passion for sharing their faith with children. Each Awana club is a ministry of the church which sponsors it and follows the Awana approved curriculum. Uniforms are available, and the younger children wear vests on which they display their church club registration numbers and awards earned.
Awanas offers fun, friendship and serious Christian teaching that supports the teaching children are receiving at home and church. Living their faith can be difficult for children, especially as they grow. Awanas provides a comfortable place to learn and grow along with peers who share their faith.
Awana also reaches out to unchurched youth, providing them with an enjoyable and comfortable introduction to Jesus. Awana is an excellent choice for parents who would like their children to learn Christian values while participating in a club.
