What is AWANA?
- Hits: 4500 4500
Awana Club meetings are brimming with life-enriching experiences for young people! Trained leaders guide children through age-appropriate material. Clubbers learn that God is real, that he loves them, and that He has expressed that love through Jesus Christ. They also learn how to apply the truths of the bible to their daily lives. In a world desperate for high standards of morality and ethics, Awana uses the Bible to teach children to honor God and their fellow human beings.
The goal of Awana Clubs is to reach boys and girls for Christ and train them to serve him. Since 1950, churches have been using Awana to reach out to the youth in their communities. The Awana Clubs program is distinctively Christian and Bible-centered. Of course, Awana Clubs do not exclude kids based on their religious affiliation. The club meetings are open to all.
Why do hundreds of thousand of kids attend Awana Clubs every week?
Awana is fun! That’s the bottom line for most kids. Of course, they’re learning and growing while they’re having fun.
What do most kids ask after their first Awana Club meeting?
"Can we go to Awana again next week?"
Three segments provide start-to-finish adventure in every club meeting. Each has a purpose.
Game Time: Every Awana Club meeting includes a high-energy Game Time featuring individual and team competition. Game Time unleashes kids’ natural energy and enthusiasm. The Awana Game Circle has universal appeal. Kids everywhere love Awana Games! Everyone participates.
Handbook Time: Using achievement-oriented curriculum materials, Awana emphasizes memorization and understanding of key Bible verses. With a trained leader alongside to encourage and guide, clubbers develop a Bible-based view of how to know and serve God. Clubbers are rewarded for their achievements as they progress through the handbooks.
Council Time: The whole club gathers for a Bible message, singing, and announcements of upcoming events. One highlight of Council Time is the presentation of awards for individual handbook progress and team competition.
