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 2020-2021:
As with everything else, there are changes we will be making to AWANA this year to keep your kids as safe as possible and to comply with Covid guidelines.
We are planning to have our first AWANA meeting on Wednesday, September 9. We are decreasing the club night to one hour. Club will now be meeting from 6:30-7:30 pm. This will be a regular club meeting as we will not be doing a get acquainted night.
We ask that your child come wearing a mask. We will not require them to wear them for the whole club night but definitely when entering and leaving. If they forget their mask, one will be provided. The leaders will wear masks and face shields as needed. When the clubbers enter the church, a leader will be at the door to direct them to their specific club area where they will be for the evening. We will not be having opening in the Family Life Center. When Club is over the clubbers will stay in their club area until parents are there for pickup. A leader will be at the door and will let them know their parent has arrived. Our goal is to eliminate congestion in the foyer.
We do ask if your child is is not feeling well or shows signs of illness, that he stay home.
If you do not feel comfortable sending your child to Club in person, we are willing to do a form of virtual club. Please contact Art or Anne if you are interested.
We have made the decision not to have dues this year as we were unable to finish last Club year and do not know what this year may hold. 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.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
