ABOUT OUR CLUB
Opening Ceremony: consists of a short flag ceremony and singing the AWANA clubs theme songs, announcements and prayer.
Handbook Time: consists of clubbers saying “sections” in their handbooks that have been studied at home, discussing what the Bible verses mean, and how they apply to their everyday lives. A section must be said to the leader in one sitting with no more than 2 helps per section. If the clubber is reviewing their book, they are not allowed any helps at all.
Game Time: consists of fast-paced AWANA games. Our game time is a unique time to learn Christian sportsmanship and respect for others.
Council Time: consists of songs, sharing, and a Bible lesson that clubbers can relate to.
Awards Ceremony: consists of presentations of awards the clubbers have earned each night.
DROPPING OFF & PICKING UP
We take our ministry seriously and are not only concerned for the spiritual growth of your child, but also for his/her safety and welfare. We ask that you drop your child off no earlier than 6:15pm (come sign them in if it is their first time) and pick them up in the AWANA game room at 8:00pm.
We will not allow clubbers to go outside to the parking lot without a parent/guardian. Releasing to older siblings does not count. You must come inside. If you have made arrangements with someone else to pick up your child, please send a letter with your child for us to put on file and notify us of an EMERGENCY number at which you can personally be reached on Wednesday evenings.
Tennis shoes are the best choice to wear during games.
At times, leaders will use a “5-Count” when they need clubbers to get quiet. Clubbers are expected to be quiet by 5.
Clubbers will not bring food, drink, gum, toys, or inappropriate items.
Any clubber causing problems during the evening will be given a “3-Count” warning. The first is a warning. The second is a conference with the director, and the third results in conference with commanders, a call home to parents, and a 1 day suspension from AWANA.
Club Awards and Cost
Clubbers receive a handbook upon completion of the Entrance Booklet for that club which they will receive on their first AWANA club attendance. At that time, the handbook and uniform will be purchased. Various handbook awards are earned by attending regularly with no more than one unexcused absence per quarter from AWANA. Sunday School awards are earned by attending Sunday School or church on a regular basis with no more than 2 unexcused absences per semester. (An unexcused absence is anything beyond the control of the clubber).
Uniforms-A uniform may be purchased after the club entrance booklet is completed. A complete uniform should be worn to every club function unless it is a special dress-up night. No awards will be given to a clubber who is not in full uniform. The awards will be kept in reserve until the clubber attends in full uniform. Uniforms should be kept in good repair with badges, awards, and patches displayed correctly.
Dues-Any quality program costs money to be implemented, so we ask the clubbers to pay dues. Dues help pay for prizes, awards, trophies, game equipment, etc. but do not cover the cost of handbooks or uniforms which must be purchased separately. Notice that there are price breaks for paying by the year and for families with more than one child attending club.
