Awana is a bible-based evangelism and discipleship program for kids that actively involves parents, church leaders, and mentors. Our Awana club works with parents to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ.
The URBC Awana Club meets on Tuesday evenings, September through May, from 6:00-7:30pm. We have clubs for ages 3 through 12th Grade.
WHAT is AWANA?
A.W.A.N.A. - "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" (2 Timothy 2:15 "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.")
Awana is a bible-based evangelism and discipleship program for kids that actively involves parents, church leaders, and mentors. Our Awana club works with parents to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Internationally, each week more than 1.5 million children and youth take part in Awana in over 22,000 churches. We are excited to partner with Awana to reach boys and girls in our community with the Gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him.
WHO can participate?
Our Awana program is for children ages 3 through 12th grade. Of course we can’t throw them all together and make it work, so Awana divides them into 5 different “clubs”:
- Cubbies—Preschool (ages 3-4)
- Sparks—Kindergarten through 2nd grade.
- T&T—Grades 3 through 6.
- Trek - Grades 7 through 8.
- Journey - High School
WHY would I want my kids in Awana?
The Bible calls parents to be the primary spiritual influencers of their children. That can be easier said than done—many parents simply don’t know where to start. Awana can help by providing an abundance of opportunities for parents to have meaningful, spiritual conversations with their kids. All you have to do is help your child with the work found in their Awana books. Ask them questions like, “Do you understand what this means?” or “Do you think you’re living this out?” That might be all it takes to kick-start a meaningful conversation that helps you spiritually mentor your child!
WHY would my kids want to come to Awana?
Plainly put, Awana is FUN! Every week your child will participate in exciting games, earn “Awana Dollars” that can be spent at our very own Awana Store, and hear dynamic Bible stories. Additionally, we have special “theme nights” planned throughout the year, as well as service projects and other special events.
Registration begins Tuesday, September 18th (6:00-7:30pm) @ URBC
