Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. Awana clubs reach children from age 3 to 6th grade. Through age-specific Bible teaching, games, and handbook time kids are able to learn more about God, build lasting friendships, and memorize God's Word.
Our Awana leadership team met together to try and imagine how we would gather for Awana while the challenges related to the coronavirus continue. Some of the of the unique and essential elements of Awana are large groups gathering for games, teaching, and dismissal. Additionally, we have heard from a number of leaders and clubbers who do not feel comfortable attending this fall. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision not to have Awana at least for the first semester. We have not made a decision yet on the feasibility of meeting during the spring.
The Awana handbooks provide a wonderful discipleship tool for you to use with your kids! We also know that it is helpful to have others partner with you in this, especially for older children. Here are a couple options for engaging with Awana material and leaders this fall:
- Children can still complete a book this year. We will order books so you can work through it with your child. For children wishing to complete a book this year, we will accept your initials at the end of each section as confirmation that your child has completed the work. Since we won’t have costs associated with meeting in person, you won’t need to pay dues at this time.
- Leader Interaction for Sparks and T&T. You have the option of requesting leader interaction on the registration form. Interaction will vary with the age of the child, the availability of leaders, and what you would like. Please keep in mind that there will be more responsibility on you and the clubber to complete work at home. Leaders will likely be in contact for encouragement and connection, and possibly an occasional gathering of clubbers at the church if it is safe to do that.
