Sundays, September-May, 4:30-6:30PM
Kick-off is Sep 10.
We have a new security check-in system, called Planning Center, for all of our Children’s ministries at Faith, including Awana. It will look a little different when you check in, but if you were in Awana last year or came to any of our summer events, your info has been ported over to the new system. We will need to confirm that everything is current since the last time you checked in. If you are completely new to Faith, we will help you through the process when you come. We are also seeking more support from home this year, so we will also be asking you to sign a Parent Partnership Agreement. Your support helps both your Clubber and our club. Last year was great! If you missed the Closing Program, here's the Year in Review video.
Awana is fun with a purpose! It's a children's Bible club with an emphasis on Scripture memory and Christian living for kids. We're part of a worldwide Awana kids' club ministry that exists to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.
Kids from our church and around the community come together for fun, learning, and fellowship. Children are separated into smaller clubs based on age: Cubbies (3-4yrs.), Sparks (K-2nd grade), Truth & Training (3rd-6th grade). We will only be offering Puggles (2 yrs.) this year if someone steps up to lead it. They get to play active games, hear solid, biblical teaching, and learn the basics for a relationship with God. They work at saying Bible verses they learned at home, memorizing more verses, and applying them to their daily lives, in an environment with lots of positive friendships, encouragement, and affirmation. Little kids get a pint-sized version of what the big kids enjoy. Remember to wear tennis shoes and bring your friends!
At Awana we use a cross-club curriculum approach. That means an age-appropriate version of the same Bible lesson will be taught in each club. This way, your whole family can talk about the Bible lesson they heard at club on the way home, giving families an opportunity to connect and reinforce lessons learned.
Cost: Regular attendees will need to purchase a uniform ($10-$16 depending on which club), a handbook ($10), and pay a registration fee ($20 per child or $50 max per family), which covers Awana Club dues, Clubber awards, and all of the fun stuff we include on club nights.
As with any of our Children’s Ministry opportunities, parents and other caring adults are always welcome to join us as leaders or for special event nights. Awana is also a great opportunity for teens. It’s a ministry the entire family can plug into.
Our required security check-in procedure applies to all ages. If you have children in Sparks or T & T, please park in the rear parking lot and enter the FLC building through the main lobby. There you will find multiple check-in stations and some friendly folks to help you through the process.
At Check-in, your child will receive a printed name badge sticker to wear, and the guardian dropping them off will receive a Guardian Receipt sticker with a matching security code. You may check in multiple children at one time, but will still receive one security sticker that you will present when you return for all of your children.
To check out, guardians must present their matching Guardian Receipt sticker so that we can insure a child is picked up by an authorized adult guardian. Check-out will occur at the child’s classroom door by the adult in charge. Note: Your child’s name badge will display pertinent information including Medical/Allergy info. Please keep your phone turned on, in the event that your child needs you. Thank you for your cooperation as we provide a safe and secure environment for your kiddos.
Once you have checked in, take your Sparks and T & T kids to the gym where they will find their club Leaders and LITs waiting to greet them on their color lines, Sparks towards the stage, T & T at the other end. Parents are always welcomed to stay for the Flag Ceremony. If you have a Cubbie, please walk them over to the WC building before Flags. If you are only bringing a child to Cubbies, you may park in the front lot and use the check-in station at the Tree House @ Faith Nursery.
