AWANA is an acronym that means Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.
It's a children's program that has an objective to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ.
It 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.
General AWANA information 2021-2022:
We are planning to have our first AWANA meeting on Wednesday, September 15 at Edgewood Bible Church. All youth Kindergarten through 8th grade are welcome to attend. This will be a regular club meeting night. We have made the decision to go back to our regular meeting time of 6:30 to 8:00 pm. We plan at this time to run our Club the way we did pre-COVID including game time. Masks will not be required but can be worn if you feel more comfortable wearing one.
We do ask if your child is is not feeling well or shows signs of illness, that he stay home.
We will not be charging dues this year but we do ask that you pay $11 for your child's handbook if they need one. All clubbers in T&T (3rd-6th grade) will need to purchase a new handbook each year.
Cancellation policy reminder: If Ed-Co School is dismissed early or canceled due to bad weather or Covid-19, then AWANA will be canceled for that night also.
Discipline remains the same with the 5 count being used to bring the class to order. A 3 count system of discipline is used for individual misbehavior. The clubber will be given a warning about his or her behavior and explained what will happen if the misbehavior continues. If it is repeated a third time in the same evening, the clubber will be taken home by two leaders and explained to the parents why the clubber was brought home.
