awana[2]Leading Kids Worldwide to Know, Love and Serve Christ
AWANA helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
What do kids do at AWANA?
The club meeting, which lasts about an hour and a half is divided into four segments: Announcements & Awards, Game Time, Handbook Time, and Council Time. During Announcements, clubbers receive their awards giving recognition of achievements. Playing games in AWANA, provide fun, exercise, and promotes good sportsmanship. During handbook time, clubbers progress through age-appropriate handbooks by memorizing and demonstrating an understanding of the Bible passages. The main feature of Council Time is a Bible lesson.
What does the word “AWANA” mean?
“AWANA” is an acronym for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.” It is taken from II Timothy 2:15, which states, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
