What is Awana?

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. This idea comes from the club theme verse 2 Timothy 2:15, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

The purpose of Awana is to train children and families to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ. This program is a fun, exciting time filled with games, activities, Scripture memorization, and Bible lessons.

Who can come to Awana and when is it?

Our club is open to children ages 3 years-5th grade, whether or not they are regular attendees of Community Bible Church. Kids are always encouraged to invite their friends!

We meet most Wednesday evenings September 14 – April 12, 2023 from 6:30-8pm. Online registration closes September 13th; however, you are welcome to join us at any point during the year.

You won’t want to miss out on our extra-curricular events! These are optional, but packed with fun!

  • Occasional Friday evening verse-a-thons will help kids memorize their verses so they can win awards!
  • Our Pine Car Derby Grand Prix takes place over two Saturdays, one workshop day and one Event Day.

What happens on a typical Awana night?

Each week your child will enjoy Small Group Time, Game Time, and Large Group Time.

During Small Group Time, each child will have the opportunity to memorize verses from the Bible and go through a book filled with adventure and activities. As each child works through their book, they will be given prizes and awards for their accomplishments.

Game time involves fun and exciting games that are played around a game circle that is unique to the Awana club.  Games are designed for every age group and child, regardless of individual athletic ability. Everyone can enjoy game time at Awana!

Large Group Time is a special time where clubbers will come together and sing songs, enjoy skits, and listen to Bible lessons.

How can I encourage my child’s progress from home?

  1. The foundation for Awana is God’s Word, The Bible.  Supporting your child’s memory work is vital to his/her success. Remind them to work on their verses—starting the Thursday following club. There may be times that you will need to listen and give hints to assist memorization. If your child has difficulty memorizing, please let us know! Our leaders and directors may be able to help with other techniques.
  2. Parental signatures are not accepted for section completion. This policy applies even to parents who volunteer in AWANA. There are, however, some activities in the handbooks that do require parental feedback.  Your participation on these pages is necessary.
  3. Your child will earn points for their team by attending club in uniform, bringing their handbook, and bringing their bible. Please help them to remember to bring these items.
  4. There may be times when parents will be needed as volunteers for special activities.  Please consider if you would like to participate. If interested, notify the club’s director or secretaries.
  5. Last, but most importantly, pray for your child. Pray that the Word of God they are memorizing will touch their heart.  Pray that they will come to know Jesus Christ and learn to serve Him.

Is there a cost associated with Awana?

There is no cost to attend Awana on a weekly basis, however, we do ask for materials fees to cover the cost of books, uniforms, and awards.
