WHAT DOES AWANA STAND FOR? AND WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and comes from the Bible passage,
2 Timothy 2:15.
HERE ARE SOME REMINDERS AS WE START OFF THE 2017/2018 AWANA CLUB YEAR
- Awana is held Wednesdays, September through May, from 6:05 pm-7:30 pm.
- A dinner is offered at 5:30 pm for $2, each week no need to cook, come and dine with us!
- Check-in begins at 5:50pm and opening ceremony begins at 6:05 pm sharp for all clubbers and leaders.
- All Clubbers are required to have a signed medical release/permission form on file.
- Please provide an email address on your clubbers forms so you can receive email updates.
- Arrive on time to club, go to Church & Sunday school, wear their uniform & gym shoes, bring their Bible & Awana handbook, memorize their verses, and bring a friend (optional), Participate in all activities & theme nights.
- For safety, we require ALL clubbers wear gym shoes for game time, and please, no flip flops, sandals or open toe shoes.
- Each of the above earns clubbers awards for their uniforms and points for them to shop at the "Awana Store" with lots of fun prizes and gifts a few times during the year. Please help your child with these areas.
NICKLE & DIME NIGHTS
On the 2nd Wednesday of each month (Sept – April), we’re asking clubbers to bring in nickels and dimes to raise money to help support our local Awana Missionaries. We will present the monies raised to them in March 2018 when they visit our club. Shh, it’s a secret the Missionaries don’t know that we’re doing this for them; it will be a great surprise! Thank-you!
*Hint: Clubbers check under the recliner and couch cushions they tend to hide a lot of change.
