Frequently Asked Questions

What is Awana and why should my kids participate?
First of all, Awana is a club for kids. Awana motivates kids to learn about God and Scripture in a fun
environment with games, activities, theme nights, and incentives. Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry
committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love, and serve

When are the meetings?
Club meetings are held weekly on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00pm.

Who can participate?
Our club serves preschool-aged children through grade 8. We offer the following:

Cubbies (Preschool, ages 3 and 4)
Preschoolers learn about God and Scripture through the use of puppets, games, songs, and stories.

Sparks (Kindergarten through grade 2)
Clubbers explore biographies, memorize Scripture verses, and complete handbook activities.

Truth & Training (T&T) (Grades 3 through 6)
Handbooks and lessons aim to deepen a clubber's knowledge about God and His Word and teach how
to put that knowledge into action. Clubbers memorize Scripture and complete handbook activities.

TREK (Grades 7 and 8)
Clubbers are challenged to dive deeper into Scripture and participate in group lessons. Handbook
sections include an activity, lesson, memory verse, and seven days of devotions that help students
understand the Bible and apply it to their lives.

What happens at club meetings?
Each club meeting begins with an opening ceremony. Then, it is game time. Children participate in a
variety of fun and active games. If it is a theme night, game time usually revolves around the theme.
After game time, clubbers have book time and then council time. Book time is for learning scripture as
kids complete their handbooks. Clubbers earn awards for finishing sections of their books. Council time
is for a group Bible study or lesson. Each club meeting concludes with a closing ceremony. Awards are
given, final announcements are made, and someone prays for the group.

Is there a cost to participate?
Clubbers pay $1 dues each week to participate. The only other cost is the purchase of a handbook and
uniform vest/shirt.
