AWANA FAQ

What is AWANA?

The AWANA programs stem from 2 Timothy 2:15, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." KJV
The goal behind AWANA at Bethel is to encourage children to hide the Word of God in their heart, thus laying a foundation for effect service to our Heavenly Father. (Ps. 119:11, Joshua 1:8, 2 Tim. 3:16, Deut. 11:18, Ps. 1:1-3). All of these passages speak of the importance of studying and memorizing the all-powerful Word of God.
We strive to create an environment where the kids not only memorize Scripture like a verse factory, but also fully understand what that verse means.

AWANA Expectations

  1. AWANA starts promptly at 6:15pm and ends at 8:00pm. Please make every effort in dropping off and picking up your child at the scheduled time. We use a computerized Check-In system. You will be able to start checking in your children as early as 5:45pm. Children will only be allowed to go with parents and/or guardians who have the matching check out sticker received at the time of check in. If someone different plans to pick up, please make arrangements at the Welcome Center before leaving your children. (All check-in and check-out takes place on the children’s hall.)

  2. In order to receive full benefit from AWANA, the children must work on their verse memorization (and for Sparks and TnT, take home assignments) at home. Please set aside a little time each week to help and encourage your child in this area.

  3. No excess talking during verse/book time. Children should be studying and reciting the sections they have worked on.

  4. Game time is for fun! The only thing we ask is that children listen and follow instructions promptly for their safety and to avoid wasting their time for fun and fellowship. Please remember to wear close-toed athletic shoes for game time. Flip flops and bare feet are highly not recommended.

  5. Any disciplinary needs will be handled in a loving manner, with clear communication and insight from the parent or guardian of the child.

Materials Needed

All Children will need a Bible, handbook, and uniform. The handbook and uniform will be purchased using your AWANA dues paid at registration. The amounts can be found by downloading the registration form at the top of this page. 
We also have a scholarship fund for families who cannot afford AWANA. If you would like to donate to this, please make checks payable to Bethel Baptist Church. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
