Some Questions Answered…
Q: Where does the name AWANA come from?
Our name is an acronym for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed”, taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 in the Bible.
Q: What is the purpose of AWANA?
“To reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him”. Clubbers recite this as they salute the AWANA Flag each club meeting, just after they salute the American Flag.
Q: What do kids do in AWANA?
A lot! Hint: Arriving on time really helps. This club has three basics parts to the evening.
- Game Time
Playing in a variety of unique games on the AWANA circle involves all of the kids in fun, fast activity as part of a team. Games are appropriate to varying physical abilities. Adult team leaders encourage organization, enthusiasm, and good sportsmanship.
- Handbook Time
Clubbers progress through handbooks by memorizing and demonstrating understanding of Bible passages. It is important that clubbers remember to bring their books to each club meeting. An optional book bag may help avoid frantic, last minute searches. Passing an average of 2 to 3 sections a night will usually allow them to finish their handbook in a club year.
- Council Time
Fun songs and songs of praise start off this section of the evening. A Bible lesson with life application is always included. Theme nights and special guests keep things even more interesting. Recognition of individual and team awards is an important part of this portion.
Q: How Long does AWANA run?
Our program starts the beginning of October and runs through the end of April with a three week break for Christmas.
Q: Are there Different Programs for different ages?
Pre school boys and girls 3 & 4 year olds (the two years prior to kindergarten). Cubbies is unique because it supports and maintains the parents as a primary source of spiritual nurturing by directly involving them in the teaching-learning process.
Boys and Girls in kindergarten, first & second grade; each segment is divided into three segments: Council time for a Bible lesson, handbook time, where clubbers complete handbook sections, and game time, where the Sparkies enjoy playing games on the AWANA circle.
Truth and Training:
The name Truth & Training reflects the passion of AWANA to teach 3rd-6th grade boys & girls the truth of God’s Word and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives. Our goal is that many of today’s young people will become tomorrow’s church leaders. Their evening is broken into three segments: Handbook time, Game time, and Council time.
