Whitneyville Bible AWANA Program

Wednesday evenings, September - April from 6:30 to 8:20 PM

 

 

AWANA Registration Form:  http://www.whitneyvillebible.org/AWANARegistrationForm

 

Awana is based on a phrase from II Timothy 2:15, Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.

 

The focus of Awana is to teach boys and girls Bible truths. Today’s children are confronted with difficult decisions. Awana’s Bible-based program seeks to establish them on a firm biblical foundation that will provide guidance for many of the challenges they face. Each clubber is very special to us and to God. Awana provides an opportunity for your child to establish and grow in his/her relationship with God. Through team cooperation and individual achievement, Awana promotes the building of self-esteem and good relationships with others.

 

 

 

AWARDS: Each Clubber has the opportunity to earn various awards. Most of these awards are worn on the uniform. Ribbons, plaques and trophies are given for the completion of one or more handbooks. Each child is allowed to work at his/her own pace and is helped and guided by a caring leader.

 

POINTS: Commander, directors, and leaders may reward excellent behavior or extraordinary achievements to clubbers to add there weekly club points. Clubbers will be able to use there points at the Awana Store to buy a special gift of there choice. Check the calendar to see what weeks the store is open.

 

ATTENDANCE AWARDS: Clubbers are given awards for regular attendance in club and Sunday School (in your own home church, if you have one, or our own Sunday School ministry)

 

UNIFORMS: The Awana uniform is a vital part of Awana. It helps the clubber feel like a part of the club and is the place where most awards are displayed. Uniforms may be purchased after the Clubber has finished his/her entrance booklet. Each child should wear the complete uniform each night.

 

SNOW DAYS: If Caledonia Community Schools cancel due to weather conditions, on the day of Awana, then Awana will be cancelled. If there is a severe weather warning for Kent County past 5:30 pm then Awana is automatically cancelled. Please listen to Wood-TV 8 or WCSG for cancellation information.
