Awana Clubs in Atwater

Are you looking for a premier way to improve upon your child’s experience in life so he or she can become a well rounded individual in our society? Then you’ve come to the right place! Our Awana ministry (which means Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed – 2 Tim 2:15) provides a vital tool to disciple children and youth with the Gospel and train them to know, love and serve Jesus Christ. Awana blends Bible teaching and Scripture memorization with organized and fun activities to teach children how to develop and maintain a strong relationship with God.

AWANA starts in September and meets on Sunday from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. throughout the school year for youth 3 years old through 6th grade. Trek & Journey – 7th thru 12th grade meet on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m., starting with a hearty lunch! These ministries provide consistent, positive teaching and training that stresses strong moral and spiritual values. Our clubbers learn about the reality of God and the truth of the Bible.

A Day at AWANA Consists of 3 Segments

  • Game Time – Every AWANA meeting kicks off in high gear with lots of team competition. Organized games get all of the clubbers to participate, unleashing natural energy & enthusiasm.
  • Handbook Time – Using achievement-oriented learning segments, AWANA training emphasizes the importance of God & His Word for sound living. Clubbers progress through handbooks at their own pace & leaders meet with them individually to review what they have learned.
  • Council Time – Council time begins with group Bible study and includes awards and recognition for individual handbook progress and points scored in team play.

Although similar, Trek & Journey are slightly different, customized for the more mature teens.
