What is Awana club?

  • Fully-integrated programs for ages 2 through 18
  • Teaching that builds an enduring biblical faith
  • Healthy mentor and peer relationships
  • Irresistible fun for children, teens and adults alike

The weekly Awana club program is a 90 minute program that features three main segments: Game Time, Handbook Time and Large Group Time. Younger children’s clubs contain more and shorter segments. The children’s clubs offered at Brashear Baptist Club and the director/leaders are:

Awana embraces five key principles:

  2. Scripture memory is key.
  3. Awana is fun and exciting.
  4. Children and youth are trained to serve.
  5. Awana is built on strong leadership.

Awana Club Membership

In order to become a member of an Awana Club, the following requirements must be met:

  1. Pay club membership dues of $10 per child annually. This can be paid at the time of registration, payment arrangements can be made to pay the amount at a later time, or church sponsorship can be sought if needed.  
  2. Each club member (excluding Puggles) has an entrance booklet which includes a Gospel presentation. Completion of the entrance booklet signifies that a child is a clubber. He or she can then obtain their club uniform and handbook.

Awana Meeting Times and Drop Off/ Pick Up Procedures

Awana meetings are every Wednesday night from 6:30 – 8:00 pm beginning in September and ending in May (no meetings during summer months). Children may arrive at their meeting location between 6:15 and 6:30 pm to check in and register if not already a member. Children must be picked up INSIDE the building. No children will be allowed to leave the building unsupervised. If someone other than yourself will be picking up your children, please do one of the following:

1) If parent/guardian is dropping off, leave a signed note with the Commander or your child’s club leader indicating in the note who will be picking up the child

2) If parent/guardian is not dropping off, contact the Commander or your child’s club leader using the cell numbers as indicated in the table on page 1 to inform us who will be picking up your child(ren).

Awana Club Rules

Your child(ren) will be expected to adhere to the following club rules at each meeting:

  1. You must behave properly at all times and obey your Awana leader.
  2. You must wear your Awana uniform on club night including tennis/gym shoes (NO FLIP FLOPS) and pants/shorts.
  3. You must participate in all activities of the club night unless you are excused by your club director/leader.
  4. When you hear any leader counting from 1 to 5 (Five Count) be very quiet immediately and listen for instructions.
  5. Do not leave the building without the permission of your leader.

IMPORTANT:  Any child who chooses to break any club rules THREE TIMES (Three Count) during the club night will not be allowed to participate in the remainder of that night’s activities. If necessary, we will call parents/guardians and ask them to pick up. In some cases, children who receive three counts will be asked to stay home the following week as well. These rules are not meant to be restrictive, but to ensure a safe and fun atmosphere so each child feels safe and has a sense of security.

Individual Awana Awards

Awards and club points are another key feature of Awana clubs. Throughout Scripture, awards are given in recognition of special achievement or obedience. Awards are biblical, motivating, offers tangible encouragement, reminds parents of their children’s progress, and provides a sense of belonging.

The key requirements of club membership is memorizing scripture and completing sections within the Awana club handbook created specifically for each club. Handbooks teach children God’s Word in fun and age-appropriate ways. To successfully complete a handbook, clubbers will need to work on Scripture memory and some other aspects of sections at home. This helps children realize that learning about God is not something that happens only at church. The goal is for each clubber to complete one handbook per year at their own pace.

Throughout the year, individual clubbers earn achievement awards to display on their uniforms as they progress through handbooks. Clubbers also can earn review patches and book completion awards at the end of the year for finishing their handbooks. These awards are presented in the awards ceremony at the end of each club night and our end of year ceremony.
