WELCOME to the exciting world of AWANA clubs! We are thrilled that you are putting priority on your child’s training for life by having him/her in AWANA. As parents with clubbers of our own, we assure you that the results are very worthwhile.

Our AWANA program runs on Wednesday Nights 6:30-8:00pm September -May. We have various activities and special events and night that can be prepared for on our Awana calendar.

God says, “Train up your child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Realizing that today children are faced with more difficult decisions than ever before, AWANA provides the biblical foundation necessary for them to succeed. AWANA presents an opportunity for each child to grow in his/her relationship with God and others.

If you have any questions, need help with club procedures, or would like to help in AWANA please feel free to call Nathan or Krista Humphrey at 285-3399.

About Our Club

Opening Ceremony: consists of a short flag ceremony and singing of all the AWANA clubs theme songs.

Handbook Time: consists of clubbers saying “sections” in their handbooks that have been studied at home, discussing what the Bible verses mean, and how they apply to their everyday lives. A section must be said to the leader in one sitting with no more than 2 helps per section. If the clubber is reviewing their book, they are not allowed any helps at all.

Game Time: consists of fast paced AWANA games. Our game time is a unique time to learn Christian sportsmanship and respect for others.

Council Time: consists of songs, sharing, and a Bible lesson that clubbers can relate to.

Awards Ceremony: consists of presentations of awards the clubbers have earned each night.

CLUB RULES

  1. Tennis shoes are the best choice to wear during games.
  2. At times, leaders will use a “5-Count” when they need clubbers to get quiet. Clubbers are expected to be quiet by 5.
  3. Clubbers will not bring food, drink, gum, toys, or inappropriate items.
  4. Any clubber causing problems during the evening will be given a “3-Count” warning. The first is a warning. The second is a conference with the director, and the third results in conference with commanders, a call home to parents, and a 1 day suspension from AWANA.

Club Awards

Clubbers receive a handbook upon completion of the Entrance Booklet for that club which they will receive on their first AWANA club attendance. At that time, the handbook and uniform will be purchased. Various handbook awards are earned by attending regularly with no more than one unexcused absence per quarter from AWANA. Sunday School awards are earned by attending Sunday School or church on a regular basis with no more than 2 unexcused absences per semester. (An unexcused absence is anything beyond the control of the clubber).

Uniforms-A uniform may be purchased after the club entrance booklet is completed. A complete uniform should be worn to every club function unless it is a special dress-up night. No awards will be given to a clubber who is not in full uniform. The awards will be kept in reserve until the clubber attends in full uniform. Uniforms should be kept in good repair with badges, awards, and patches displayed correctly.

UNIFORM COST

All club handbooks $11.00

Cubbie Vest $11.50

Sparks Vest $11.00

T & T Uniforms $16/$15

Replacement of lost awards will vary.

Club Dues

Dues-Any quality program costs money to be implemented, so we ask the clubbers to pay dues. Dues help pay for prizes, awards, trophies, game equipment, etc. but do not cover the cost of handbooks or uniforms which must be purchased separately. Notice that there are price breaks for paying by the year and for families with more than one child attending club.

DROPPING OFF AND PICKING UP

We take our ministry seriously and are not only concerned for the spiritual growth of your child, but also for his/her safety and welfare. We ask that you drop your child off no earlier than 6:15pm (come sign them in if it is their first time) and pick them up in the AWANA game room at 8:00pm. We will not allow clubbers to go outside to the parking lot without a parent/guardian. Releasing to older siblings does not count. You must come inside. If you have made arrangements with someone else to pick up your child, please send a letter with your child for us to put on file and notify us of an EMERGENCY number at which you can personally be reached on Wednesday evenings.
