What is AWANA? AWANA is a non-denominational ministry committed to “reaching boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and training them to serve Him.” Every week, more than one million children of all ages in 110 countries gather to learn about the Bible and hide its Word in their hearts.
Join us at Hope Valley as we help children and families learn together to grow in our knowledge of Him. AWANA at HVBC is a fun and engaging club designed to provide children ages 3 through Grade 12 an opportunity to increase their knowledge of the Bible and apply it to their lives.
Each session will consist of 3 important elements: Game Time with team and individual competitions, Handbook Time for reciting and reviewing memory verses, and Council Time for large group lessons covering Scripture and its application, as well as missionary history. Each evening will conclude with recognition and awards for achievements such as hand-book progress, attendance, and preparedness.
Join us for Awana on Sunday nights from 5:00 to 6:45. Parents are welcome to stay for the opening ceremonies. We suggest that parents try to be present for the 6:30 closing ceremony to see their children receive their awards.
Cubbies are aged 3-5. All children must be toilet trained and turn 3 by September 1, 2016. Cubbies are released at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary.
Sparks are Kindergarden through 2nd grade.
Truth and Training is for 3rd-5th grades, divided into Ultimate Adventure for 3rd-4th grades and Ultimate Challenge for 5th grade.
Bible Study programs for 6th-12th graders are also offered during the Awana timeslot – please ask for details.
Our AWANA meetings will open and close in the Family Life Center. The Fellowship Hall will be used for check-in, and children will then go to the gym to join their teachers. Handbook Time and Council Time will be held in the Education Wing, and children will then return to the gym for closing. Children will be released to their parents from the gym.
To help defray the costs of AWANA books, uniforms, and awards, we suggest an offering of $25 per child paid at registration, with a maximum of $60 per family. A weekly offering of 50 cents per child is also suggested, to help cover program costs and support our AWANA missionary. However, funds are available to cover costs for all children.
Awana meeting dates are shown on the church calendar. If we can help with any questions you may have, please contact us at [email protected].
