More About Awana
Each club night is broken up into three different sessions: Handbook Time, Game Time, and Council Time.
In Handbook time children are encouraged to excel individually in their bible verse studies. They receive recognition and rewards as they reach different milestones.
Game time is a period of fun and fellowship. Children are placed on one of four teams (red, blue, green, or yellow) and participate in a variety of games on the Awana circle. These games are fun and competitive, but are of a nature that allows almost all children to participate regardless of their athletic skills.
Council time provides a Christian message that is intended to present the Gospel as well as Christian morals and values to the children. Awana leaders and special guest speakers present these messages at a level that children can understand.
