What is Awana?
Awana at Bethel is a fun and meaningful way for kids and parents to grow in their love and knowledge of God. All you ever wanted to know about Awana can be found at www.awana.org. Awana centers around a Wednesday evening club night where kids play games, memorize Scripture, and are discipled by a trained, caring team of staff and volunteers.
But the learning doesn’t stop there. Throughout each week, kids and parents work together to learn and study the Bible.
At Awana we have a lot of fun! We also learn truth from God’s Word that sticks with us for a lifetime.
Awana starts on Wednesday, September 16, and meets on Wednesdays during the school year from 6:25-8:00 p.m.
Registration begins on Sunday, August 23, during Sunday morning church. Fill out registration forms (below), pay dues and pick up books. You can also sign up on Sunday, August 30 or Wednesday, September 2, from 6:25-8:00 p.m. Throughout the year you can register on Wednesday nights at the Kids Info Desk (come early if possible).

How Awana Works
Awana – which stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Tim. 2:15) – is used by churches around the world to effectively teach children the Bible. To facilitate age-appropriate learning environments, children are grouped into different club levels:
Puggles (two year olds – limited space available & parents must be in the building)
Cubbies (three & four year olds – limited space available & parents must be in the building)
Sparks (kindergartners through second graders)
T&T (third through sixth graders).
A Typical Awana Club Meeting
Activities each night are broken into three distinct phases. Our strategy here is to meet the needs of every child – from the rambunctious child who has energy to burn to the inquisitive one who loves to hear stories.
Individual and team competition takes place through circle games (exclusive to Awana) and playground favorites. Every child gets involved every night and has a chance to unleash his or her energy.
Children work one-on-one with a trained leader to complete assignments in the curriculum materials. Awana emphasizes memorization and understanding of key Bible verses that show how to know God and walk with Him. A series of awards and trophies reward achievements at every level as kids progress.
Everyone gathers together for singing, announcements, award distribution and, most importantly, a practical Bible message.
