What is Awana?
For over six decades, the Lord has used the ministry of Awana to reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world. The unchanging truth of the gospel drives the same vision we’ve held all these years to reach children in every corner of the globe as we walk boldly into the future and continue to be used by God to help change the world.
Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed
(2 Timothy 2:15)- Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Our AWANA Program runs each Sunday night from 5pm-7pm starting September 10th. Dinner will be provided for the children each Sunday night.
How Does My Child Get Started?
Enrollment in AWANAS is made possible when you register your child for AWANA 2023-2024 year no later than August 20th. Each child registered by August 20th will be part of AWANA Club, receiving a Club Handbook and a Club’s AWANA uniform.
Please note that uniforms are an important component of the AWANA ministry. They encourage an orderly and disciplined club, reinforce the sense of community and provide a place to display achievement awards.
How is Time Spent in AWANA
Leaders listen to clubbers recite verses that they have memorized. They also work one-on-one with clubbers to help them complete their handbooks.
AWANA specific games feature fun activities they won’t find anywhere else. Although games are competitive in nature, emphasis is placed on developing team spirit, good sportsmanship and self- confidence. Pledges to the American flag, the Bible, and the Christian flag are led.
The goal of Council Time (also known as Large Group Time) is to focus clubbers’ attention on Bible truths and relate them to daily life. The Bible message will encourage unsaved clubbers to accept Christ as Savior and saved clubbers to grow in their relationship with Christ. Clubbers are recognized for their hard work with awards that are to be worn on their AWANA uniforms.
Cost and Dues
There is no charge for the program itself. The church covers the initial cost of the club uniform and handbook. The cost for the children’s handbooks will be $15. Typically, a child will only need one handbook each year. A few ambitious children might need two. In the event your child misplaces either their handbook and/or their uniform, the church will NOT provide a replacement and you will need to purchase new for the remainder of the AWANA year.
The AWANA uniforms are priced as follows:
Club Uniform Vest, Jersey or T-Shirt
Cubbies $22 Sparks $22 T&T $25
Security and Check-In/Check-Out Policy
Child safety is important to Roberta Baptist Church. All leaders and volunteers are asked to participate in Child Protection Training to assure the safety of each and every child.
Parents/Guardians or authorized persons must enter the building with the clubber. Do not send your child in alone. To ensure that this is being done, you will now need to sign your child in at AWANA each night. At the end of club you need to come in the sanctuary to pick up your child. Children will not be permitted under any circumstances to leave the building without a parent. Please understand that while this may be inconvenient it is to protect YOUR child as well as every other clubber at AWANA.
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO CHECK IN YOUR CHILD EACH WEEK! SAFETY FIRST!!
Please be considerate of the workers and pick up your child by 7:15 PM
