Awana

WELCOME TO Awana!

SUNDAYS, SEP-MAY, 4:30-6:00PM (New Time)

Awana is fun with a purpose! It's a community 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).

During COVID-19

we will maintain a Hybrid model.

Our goal is to offer families the option of online OR in-person and will continue this way for awhile, until the number of new COVID-19 cases goes down and stays down. We look forward to the day when we can ALL return to in-person club once again. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this course.

This site begins with information on how Awana will work for now, in light of the pandemic. We're also leaving up how things would run normally, so that new families to Awana and this page can understand how club works once we're all back on campus. Please scroll to the CHECK-IN PROCEDURE section to note changes and the safety measures we will implement. Scholarships available.

Awana Clubs Your way in 2020

We have families connecting both online and in-person this fall, and have been praying for all of you.
Thank you for making Awana a priority with your family.

all club announcements: 

➤  Nov. 1 is Costume Night! We can't wait to see the Clubbers in their costumes! We'll be in ours too. This week your Clubber will go home with a bag of candy for themselves and a second bag of candy to share as they Tell A Friend about Jesus.

➤ NOTE! The Sparks club (K-2nd grade) is currently full for in-person attendance for what we can safely allow for social distancing, however, you could still join the club by Zoom. Let us know if you are interested. If you would like to be on the waiting list for in-person when we are able to allow more kiddos, please contact our Children's Ministry Assistant, Erica, at CMA@faithbible.com or fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

Active: Mummy Wrap
Since we can find plenty of toilet paper these days, give this one a try, Divide into 2 teams. Each team needs a mummy and a wrapper or 2. When the leader says "Go!" wrap the mummy head to toe. Teams work against each other and the team that finishes their roll of toilet paper first, wins!

CHECK-IN PROCEDURE

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.

NEW! Please read carefully.
-Parents/Guardians and Clubbers meeting in the FLC building are required to wear a face mask. We have added multiple hand-sanitizing stations and usage will be encouraged during club. We will social distance and have adjusted flow and designated stairwell and restroom usage by club. Our building is being cleaned often, including Sunday afternoons, so after Sunday morning families leave and before our Awana families arrive...And then it's cleaned again...

-As you enter you will find multiple check-in stations and some friendly folks to check your child in for you. 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. 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.

-We are trying to limit the number of people in specific areas in the building and maintain social distancing recommendations, so there is no longer a drop-off in the gym or Flag Ceremony.

-Once your kiddos are checked in, and if you feel comfortable:
T&T Clubbers can go on their own to their club locations. T&T Girls go to the Gym and T&T Boys to FLC 203, the Castle Room, where they will find their club Leaders and LITs waiting to greet them. T&T Boys will only use the stairwell with the big painted ship, behind the elevator.
Sparks Parents/Guardians and Clubbers may only use the stairwell to the right of the lobby and take your Clubber to their assigned color team room -OR- you may wait momentarily with your Clubber at the foot of the stairs and a runner will come take them up to their room; you will then use the EXIT next to the stairs.
Cubbie Parents, please walk your Cubbie over to Room 108, the Barn Room, in the Worship Center building. If you are only bringing a child to Cubbies, you may park in the front lot and use the check-in station at the Faith@home Center.
Friends Club Families, welcome back! You know what to do.

-Check-out will occur at the child’s classroom door by the adult in charge. (Cubbies: Barn Room or playground, Sparks: 209, T&T Girls: 121, T&T Boys: Gym) 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.

-Remember, club ends at 6PM!

Thank you for your cooperation as we provide a safe and secure environment for your kiddos.

pre-covid-19

At Club, kids 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. NOTE: In order to keep a safe adult:child ratio, the Cubbies class sizes are limited.

Remember to wear tennis shoes and bring your friends! We'll have special theme nights once a month, cook-outs, and Awana sponsored outreach events like Trunk or Treat. Take a peek at our calendar and we'll also send you a weekly text reminder of what's coming up.

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.

Here's a  look back at our great time together 
before the quarantine.
