Awana meets Sunday nights from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Union Church. We hope to see you there!
Would you be interested in changing children’s lives? We are always looking for volunteers to help with the AWANA program. AWANA doesn’t work unless we have devoted volunteers who believe in this ministry. You don’t need any special skills to help, you just need a willingness to learn and to serve. If you’d like more information about how you can help with AWANA (there’s lots of different jobs), then send an e-mail to Rick or Bruce and he would be happy to give you that information. We hope you’ll join us this fall!
What is AWANA?
AWANA is an acronym meaning Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. The saying comes from the Bible, in 2 Timothy 2:15. AWANA is a club (similar to Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts) that focuses on teaching children about God. Each week, there are three parts to AWANA–game time, book time, and council time. During game time, the kids play games that help to reinforce the Biblical truths they are learning. Book time is the time when the kids work on memorizing verses and learning about the Bible. Each week council time is a little different–a different speaker or group comes in to teach about some aspect of Christian life. There are three levels for AWANA, based on age.
Cubbies is a group for children 2 years prior to starting Kindergarten (usually 3 or 4 years old) until they begin Kindergarten. This is a great way to “get your child started”. (Christina Geissler will be our Cubbie Leader this year)
Sparks is the youth Club for children Kindergarten-2nd grade. (The Sparkies are led by Kelly Lafferty and Rachel Rutan)
Truth & Training (T&T)
Truth and Training is for children in 3rd grade through 6th Grade. (The TNT leader is Cindy Pollock)
Awana also includes games and depends on a number of volunteers who serve as listeners and helpers for club members.
