What is AWANA?

AWANA stands for Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15)

There are 3 different clubs with in the program:

Do to keeping the programs developmentally appropriate we keep children in the grade level they are at school. If you have concerns or thoughts on this, please email us to discuss. 

Cubbies: 3 year, 4 years, and TK. All children must be fully potty trained to participate (no pull ups).

Sparks: Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd

Truth and Training: 3rd, 4th, and 5th

Each club has its own motivation (prizes) and runs a bit different to make it appropriate for the age group.

Cubbies will receive their Appleseed book and vest the first night they attend. They all work on the same verse together each week. If they come and participate they will earn their reward. Cubbies is from 6:30-7:30 PM.

Sparks will receive their Flight zone book the first night they come. Once they complete this (can take up to three meetings) they will have EARNED their official book and vest for the year. They then can learn verses at their own pace and complete one book a year. If they finish the book before the year is over they can then go back into the book and do bonus sections for extra rewards. 

Truth and Training:

3rd and 4th graders will receive a Start zone the first night they attend. After they finish this book they will  EARN their book and shirt for they year. They can work at their own pace to finish the book and have the option to complete on book a year. If they complete the book before the year is over then they can go back and do the bonus sections for more rewards.

5th grade is run as a small group and they will work together each week on their verses. The first night they attend they will receive their TREK book and T&T shirt. If someone misses a week they can go back and learn the verse in their own time, but they can not move ahead of the group. 

All clubs are working towards finishing books and can earn ribbons, trophies and patches and jewels for their vests. Every week has an opportunity to be rewarded for their efforts. Please check the calendar for the end of the year awards ceremony. Parents are encouraged to come and celebrate the children’s hard work and effort and they will receive a final award for the year! 

 

AWANA bags are available for clubbers to purchase all year long! These bags are great to help clubbers carry their books, Bible, and other supplies to and from club each week.
