What is AWANA?
Awana is a Bible-based youth program for kids three years old through the 12th grade. The emphasis is on Bible memorization. Awana is found all over the world and has chapters in many third world countries. This unique program is a proven outreach ministry that gets children involved in learning God’s word and developing a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. The three segments per club evening encompass Handbook© time, Game© time and Council© time.
Club members use this time to recite Scripture that has been carefully selected to emphasize God’s plan of salvation and how to live daily as Christians. Clubbers use the handbooks at home to build on personal time with the Lord. Clubbers work with one Leader throughout the whole year. Children benefit from the relationships they build with their Leader. Leaders attend a training session to help them work with the children in club. Clubbers earn awards they wear on a uniform that encourages participation in all facets of club.

The key to Awana's success is often stated as GAME TIME because most clubbers will tell you this is their favorite part of club night. Clubbers participate in exciting team games on the Awana Circle. Competition is not emphasized in the early grades, but gradually will increase with the higher grade levels. Awana games are fun! Clubbers learn teamwork, sharing, and discipline.
Council time is when the club Director or Leaders share a Gospel message with the clubbers. Many times these messages tell stories about real life situations. Clubbers learn about missionaries and how God sent His Son to be the Savior of the world. Audio and visual aids catch a child’s attention and convey a spiritual truth that they can remember for the rest of their lives.
