What is Awana?

AWANA is a discipleship program for Children ages 3 years-6th grade. It helps our church and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our program offers a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community. AWANA meets Wednesday nights September-May from 6:15-8:00pm.

Will my kids enjoy Awana?

Your child will love the awesome games, exciting Bible stories, Missions speakers and fun themed nights. You will enjoy seeing your child memorizing scripture that will transform their lives and give them a passion for serving Jesus.

What are the different clubs?

Cubbies are 3 and 4 year olds
  Sparks are 5K, 1st and 2nd graders
  Truth and Training is for 3rd & 4th graders
  Highway 56 is for 5th & 6th Graders

How much are AWANA dues?

We do everything we can to keep Awana cost down, so that it is affordable for all families. Yearly dues are only $15.

What else do I need to buy?

Your child will need a handbook and uniform to participate in the club. Handbooks and uniforms are $10 each.

If your child is new to AWANA, or moving to a new club because of their age, they will need a new uniform. Please note that it is not necessary to purchase a uniform each year that your child is in AWANA. For example, you will purchase a Cubbies vest when your child enters the 3 year old Cubbies club. They will keep this vest for 2 years, until they enter 5K Sparks. Your child will then need a Sparks vest when they join the 5K Sparks club. They will keep this same vest for 3 years and then get a Truth and Training shirt when they enter the 3rd grade club. They will keep this shirt until they enter the Highway 56 club. There are no uniforms with the Highway 56 club.

Your child will work at his/her own pace through the handbooks. When your child completes a handbook, then you will need to buy a new one. It takes most children an entire AWANA year to complete a handbook. Your child may continue to work on their book until it is completed, even if that means they continue their progress into the next Awana year.
