AWANA is a children's program that has an objective to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him!
So, what does AWANA mean?
A - Approved
W - Workmen
A - Are
N - Not
A - Ashamed
The acronym is derived from 2 Timothy 2:15 which says: "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."
The emphasis of AWANA is Bible memorization. Each week the young person is challenged to recite various scripture passages that teach them about God, Christ, salvation, and many other things!
AWANA has a special time for games, handbooks and an appropriate challenge from the Bible. It is an exciting program filled with fun competition and prizes.
There are several AWANA clubs based on age groups:
Cubbies - Three and four-year-olds
Sparks - Kindergarten through 2nd grade
T&T (Truth and Training)- 3rd through 6th grade
JV/Trek - 7th and 8th grade
The clubs meet each week at Summit Academy on Olmstead in Flat Rock. The evening starts at 6:30pm and the children are dismissed at 8:10pm.
For those with senior high teens, there is a program available called High Impact. It meets at the same time at Parsons Elementary School. All adults are welcome to stay for the Bible study that is concurrent with the AWANA program. The Bible study meets at one of the classrooms at Summit Academy.
