Awana is an international youth program offered by our church as a positive influence in the development of our area’s young people.
Awana is a week-night club program designed to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and to train them to serve Him. The Awana name is derived from an idea in the Bible found in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.”
Our club is one of over 12,000 in the United States, and our charter number is #5328. There are over 7,000 additional clubs around the world. We are in our 39th year of Awana at Calvary. Awana is for all boys and girls regardless of church affiliation. It is made up of 4 individual clubs:
For children aged 2 and 3 year-olds. (for those whose parents are attending a Wednesday night Calvary Group or serving in Awana, Youth Group, or Nursery on Wednesday nights).
For boys and girls in grades Kindergarten - 2nd Grade.
Truth & Training
For boys and girls in grades 3rd grade - 6th grade.
Awana Clubs 2022-2023 will begin Wednesday, September 14, 2022. Awana meets at Calvary each Wednesday evening when school is in session (Sept-May). The meetings run from 6:30 to 8:00 PM.
Each meeting is divided into 3 excellent parts:
Game Time - Clubbers enter into teamwork and competition games. Sportsmanship and fair play are stressed as well as team spirit and cooperation.
Small Group Time - Clubbers study and recite the Bible verses from their handbooks and earn awards and participate in small group activities with their leaders.
Lesson Time - Clubbers hear a Bible message and participate in singing together.
Calvary offers the Awana program for free. Your child will also receive his/her first book and shirt for each group for free. Replacement shirts and books that are lost or damaged will need to be purchased.
