Awana

Our prayer is that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Awana is an international, Bible-centered children’s and youth ministry that FBMaryville provides weekly, September - May, for children ages 2 - grade 6.


Our Awana Ministry Embraces 5 Principles

●     Awana is centered on the Gospel.

●     Scripture memory is a key element.

●     Awana is exciting and fun.

●     Children and youth are trained to serve. 

●     Awana is built on volunteer leadership.

Club Night Agenda

The three main parts of the evening are Game Time, Handbook (Small Group) Time, and Large Group Time. 

  • Large Group Time consists of a Biblical message, testimonies, award presentations, and announcements.

  • Handbook Time (Small Group), leaders listen to verses the clubbers have memorized and help children understand and apply them.

  • Game Time is exciting! Please have children wear proper attire for games including close-toed, non-slip shoes for running.


Security

For the protection of the child, only adults listed on the registration form and holding the security tag portion of their child’s printed nametag will be allowed to pick them up.


Leader Qualifications

A leader's first goal is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each leader has professed the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior; our leaders also participate in Awana leader training to prepare themselves to disciple your children.  Each of our leaders has passed a standard background check.
