AWANA, which stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, is taken from II Timothy 2:15, where the Apostle Paul says “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” This indeed is what the AWANA program is all about with its goals being to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. In order to minister more effectively to each boy or girl on his or her own level, the AWANA program is divided into six clubs (3 years old thru 6th grade). The two (2) year old program emphasizes God as Creator. It draws on family involvement during the week to help the child remember God’s truth. Cubbies is the Awana Club for preschoolers during the two years prior to regular kindergarten (usually three- and four-year olds). Cubbies is unique because it supports and maintains the parents as the primary source of spiritual nurturing by directly involving them in the teaching-learning process. It includes Bible memorization, handbooks, awards, and stimulating activities. Clubbers study basic Bible truths along with popular preschool concepts of colors, shapes, numbers, and letters. Material especially lends itself to parental guidance and involvement. The K through 2nd program builds on preschool material to take a deeper look into God’s Word. Using a combination of fun activities and serious study, we capture the attention of little hearts for God’s great story. The third through sixth-grade clubs, titled Truth & Training Clubs, are organized on a three-part meeting plan: Game Time, Handbook Time, and Council Time. Trek & Journey is designed with the specific needs of junior and senior highers in mind. It targets teens at different spiritual levels, and provides what they need to grow in Christ. It combines exciting activities, interactive learning, small-group fellowship, and large-group community into a dynamic program.
