Awana Clubs

Awana Logo WebAwana is a part of LAUNCH Ministries and is held at Highland Park every Wednesday evening from 6:00-7:45 PM during the school year. Awana is a nondenominational ministry during the school year for children ages birth through sixth grade. Kids love Awana because it’s fun, but parents love the program, too–because it teaches boys and girls about God, the Bible, and other life-enriching lessons.

Our Awana Club Programs:

  • Birth to 3 years – Puggles (for those whose parents are involved in any church family night activity)
  • Ages 3 & 4 – Cubbies (must be potty trained)
  • Grades K, 1, 2 – Sparks (coed)
  • Grades 3-6 – Truth & Training (boys)
  • Grades 3-6 – Truth & Training (girls)

Each evening begins with a short Rally Time consisting of praise music and announcements. Clubbers then separate into individual, age appropriate clubs. Each Club night consists of three segments:

  • Game Time: Every club meeting has a high-energy game time featuring individual and team competition. Game Time unleashes kids’ natural energy and enthusiasm. The Awana Game Circle has universal appeal!
  • Handbook Time: Using achievement oriented curriculum materials, Awana emphasizes memorization and understanding of key Bible verses. With a trained leader alongside to encourage and guide, clubbers develop a Bible-based view of how to know and serve God. They are rewarded for their achievements as they progress through their books.
  • Council Time: Each club gathers for a time of hearing a Bible message directly from God’s Word.

The word Awana stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Through Awana, your child will:

  • Memorize Scripture in a fun and exciting way
  • Learn God’s Word with other kids their age
  • Participate in games and other entertaining activities to stretch their body and mind
