What do we Do? A night at Awana is broken into three segments: Handbook Time – Clubbers develop a sense of community during this time as they break out into small groups. Awana has take-home, age-specific, interactive handbooks that promote spending time every day in God’s Word, express healthy values, and encourage memorization of Scripture, all by using achievement-oriented learning segments. Game Time – Every Awana meeting includes active and friendly team competition! We have a variety of organized games that allow children to participate with their peers in teams and compete against other kids in their age group. Large Group Time – This is a time dedicated to Bible teaching in the age-based large groups that complements the lessons learned in Handbook Time.
