AWANA = "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed"
Awana Begins September 14, 2016
AWANA is a weekly club for kids ages 3 to 12th grade. The purpose of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him. We want our clubbers to realize that God loves them and that through His Son, Jesus, He provided salvation and the ability to have a personal relationship with Him and that learning His Word and obeying Him gives them meaningful and rewarding lives. This is accomplished through Bible memory, Bible lessons, games, achievements, and fellowship.
NKBC is offering the following AWANA Clubs this year:
Puggles: Infant - 2 year olds (for any staff members & helpers with wee ones needing care).
Cubbies: 3 - 4 year olds (must be 3 by August 31st)-Cubbies is a limited program. A parent must stay and serve in Cubbies OR in one of the other clubs.
Sparks: Kindergarten - 2nd grade
Truth & Training (T&T): 3rd - 6th Grade
Trek: 6th-8th Grade
Journey: 9th-12th Grade
Leaders In Training (LIT): 7th-12th Grade (program under construction)
AWANA meets from 6:30pm to 8:15pm on Wednesday nights from the second Wednesday in September to early May. Vacations, snow days etc. coincide with the North Kitsap School District, thus club is cancelled during school closures due to inclement weather and holidays. Each club night is divided into three main sections:
1. Handbook time
Each clubber has a handbook which they progress through by learning Bible verses and doing activities. During Handbook time, the leaders check the children's progress, listen to them recite verses, check to make sure they understand and encourage them. Prizes and awards are earned as the children complete sections in their books.
2. Game Time
Our game director plans exciting and fun-filled games each week. In addition, weekly "theme nights" such as Crazy Hat Night when everyone wears crazy hats or Zoo Night where lots of food games and activities abound make AWANA crazy and full of fun.
3. Council time
Each evening Bible truths and the gospel are presented to the clubbers in a variety of ways.
AWANA is an international ministry with chapters throughout the world. Although North Kitsap Baptist Church sponsors this particular chapter, children from a variety of churches attend AWANA. If you do not have a church, however, we invite your family to consider our church as your home. We look forward to ministering to your family.
