AWANA is a weekly enthusiastic Bible-based club ministry for children that includes games, Bible memory and an introduction to basic Bible truths. Awana works with churches throughout the United States, and around the world, to teach kids God’s word. The ministry and teaching materials have been perfected with over 60 years of use, and have proven to be a highly successful Bible teaching tool. The purpose is succinctly declared, as reflected in the Awana flag pledge, to reach all children with the Gospel of Christ and training them to serve the Savior.
Children in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade can register anytime throughout the school year. Springbrook offers Sparks for grades K-2nd and Truth & Training for grades 3rd-6th. Each night is divided into three sections (after the Opening and Flag Ceremony in the gym): Games, Large Group Message and Small Group/Memory Verse Recitation. Our AWANA Club meets right here at Springbrook on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm to 8:30pm during the school year.
Ministry Serving Opportunities
We need many more leaders to impact the lives of kids. Anyone who has a new life in Christ and a love for Him as well as a love for kids can be used in Awana. Teenagers and senior citizens; the physically active as well as the handicapped, new believers and those well-versed in the Bible – all will find a place of challenging service that produces spiritual gain by working in Awana. Becoming a spiritual role model, a friend and encourager in spiritual development and obedience are benefits. All team leaders need to regularly attend Springbrook, and be committed to giving Awana nights and leader meetings a priority so there can be effective team work.
Needs in leadership are varied:
We need volunteers in numerous roles from check-in helpers to team leaders to make sure each child has an opportunity to learn from God’s Word, recite Bible verses, and play games in a safe environment.
