The Mission of AWANA is:

            to equip leaders to reach kids with the gospel and to engage them in lifelong discipleship.

The Vision and Prayer of AWANA is:

            that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.

 

2 Timothy 2:15 says,

            ”Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

 

The Bible is truth and when our children know the truth they will stand up for what is right and true in times of trouble. Bible memory is an important tool to keep people of all ages on the straight and narrow.

 

Psalm 119:9-11 says,

            “How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

 

Sparks Club is for children in Kindergarten through Grade 2. On opening night each child will receive a red vest they must wear to every club meeting and an entrance Booklet with a story and memory verse. Once the book is completed the child receives the HangGlider Rank Emblem to attach to the vest and the HangGlider handbook. The Handbooks are broken up into sections. Each section has a story and a new memory verse or a review memory verse. For every four sections completed the clubber receives a jewel to pin to his wing badge on the vest. Sparks clubbers also receive jewels for regular attendance.

 

If the child flies through the handbook quickly they can gain extra credit and awards by completing additional memory work. There are 3 handbooks in the Sparks Club to be completed in the following order.

 

            HangGlider                                                    

            WingRunner

            SkyStormer

 

All clubbers must start with the Flight 3:16 entrance booklet and then HangGlider handbook regardless of their starting age.

Memory Verse Requirements

 

When clubbers are reciting verses, they are required to say the reference (eg. John 3:16) as well as the verse. The listener can give them two helps during the reciting of the verse or section. If he/she requires more than two helps, then they will be asked to work on the verse some more.

Parental Assistance

 

Awana recognizes that spiritual development of children begins at home. Children will learn the most from their handbooks if parents go over the lessons and review the verses at home. We encourage you to read the Bible stories with your children and share excitement for each verse that they learn and say to you at home. Look at their books, encourage them as they memorize the verses, and let them practice in the car or at home, listening to the audio included with the Handbook. The Leader will work with your child during Handbook time but since the time is limited, a clubber will not learn the verse as well as he/she could if they had learned the verse at home.

 

Issuing Handbook Awards

 

As clubbers complete sections in each handbook, they earn awards that are placed on their uniform. The awards earned are issued during club time. Awards will only be issued if the clubber has their vest or jersey on. This keeps awards from getting lost since they are so small and are meant to be attached to the uniform. If a child forgets their uniform the awards will be kept until the next week.

 

Club Cancellation

 

In case of inclement weather, Awana leaders will call your home by 5 pm to cancel clubs. For this reason, please keep us up to date on your contact information if it changes.

  • Running shoes must be worn during club.
