AWANA helps the church and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. The program offers a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
AWANA meetings are held on Wednesday nights, 6:30 to 8:15 PM. They start early in September and continue through the end of April. Cubbies registration is in the spring. Older clubbers register in August and may register on any AWANA Club night.

AWANA club meetings combine learning with fun to get kids excited about God’s Word and applying it to their daily lives. Club meetings are divided into three segments:
Game time focuses on FUN, team competitions where clubbers develop team spirit, cooperation and good sportsmanship.
Handbook time allows clubbers to step deeper into God’s Word while giving unsaved boys and girls regular opportunities to hear the gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ. Clubbers work one-on-one with their leaders, reviewing their handbook memorization and developing their mental and spiritual abilities.
Council time is a group time with music, inspirational messages and studying the application of God’s Word to the clubbers’ lives.
