What is Awana?

The word AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15:

"Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

Uniforms, awards, pins and patches help motivate Clubbers to memorize God's Word. Our mission is "to reach boys & girls with the Gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him."

Our AWANA club (charter #5442) was formed in September, 1984.  From September through May 70 plus children participate each week in Bible teaching and memorization, competitions, and special events.

The Registration Forms you will need to complete are listed below for your convenience. 
Uniforms, Books, & Bags
  • The AWANA uniform lets others know you are a member of your club.  Wearing a uniform is not required, but if you have a uniform to display all of your awards, it will be more meaningful.  You can order a uniform as soon as you complete the requirements for membership, which are completing your entrance booklet.
  • Wear your complete uniform each week for the club meeting.  Make sure you attach your awards to it as soon as possible!  We encourage all clubbers to wear gym-type shoes as part of the uniform.  Also, we recommend that the clubbers wear modest length shorts or long-pants.  This is for safety on the Game Circle.  Sparks must wear long pants.
  • The prices of uniforms, books, & bags are:
    • Cubbies Vest - $11.00 / Cubbies Book - $10.00 / Cubbies Bag - $7.00

  • There are no "dues" required for attending AWANA.  However, each clubber is encouraged to bring $.75 each week to help support our AWANA missionaries.  The $.75 also is used to help defray the cost of weekly prizes we give to winning teams.
  • You may pre-pay your yearly dues for $19.00.  This saves $5.00.
  • We are happy to supply your children with the uniform awards they earn throughout the year.  Awards that become lost may be replaced at a nominal cost by contacting your child's leader.
