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 INFORMATION FOR AWANA 2023-2024
We are thankful you are sending your kids to AWANA. The following information should be helpful for everyone to have a good time at Club.
MEETING TIMES: Club meetings are held each Wednesday night with check-in from 6:15-6:30 and club meetings from 6:30-8 pm at Edgewood Bible Church in Edgewood.
CANCELLATION POLICY: If Ed-Co School is canceled or dismissed early because of bad weather, then AWANA will be canceled for that night also.
AWANA SHARES: Clubbers may earn points by saying verses, wearing their uniform, attending Sunday School or Church, bringing their Bible, handbook and bringing a visitor to AWANA. If he earns 80 points or more in one evening, he will receive an AWANA share or shares. Shares can be used at the AWANA Store which will be held three times during the Club year
DISCIPLINE: Discipline is essential at club meetings When it is necessary to quiet the entire group of clubbers, the FIVE COUNT SYSTEM is used. The time it takes to count to five gives ample time to become quiet. The THREE 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. The clubber will either be removed from Club for the rest of the night or taken home by two AWANA leaders.
FEES: We will not be charging dues this year but we do ask that you pay $12 for your child’s handbook if they need one. ALL CLUBBERS IN T&T (3RD-6TH GRADE) & TREK (7TH-9TH) WILL NEED TO PURCHASE A NEW HANDBOOK EACH YEAR. Uniforms: Sparks vest - $14, T&T uniform $19 and Trek shirt $18.
SOCIAL MEDIA: AWANA has a private facebook group called Edgewood AWANA Club which we encourage you to join. You can also access this AWANA information and the AWANA calendar at edgewoodbiblechurchonline.org, by scrolling down on the church home page and clicking on the AWANA quick link.
COMING PREPARED FOR CLUB NIGHT: The following things will help your clubber have a more enjoyable time at club: having worked on their memory verse, bringing their handbook and Bible, and wearing tennis shoes as they are needed for games.
