AWANA is a nondenominational ministry of nearly 60 years assisting churches and parents to develop spiritually strong children and youth who are faithful followers of Jesus Christ. AWANA is in more than 17,000 churches in over 109 countries on 6 continents. AWANA is about fun with a purpose---to win and grow kids for Christ.
Welcome to the Arundel Baptist Church Awana Program. We have Awana for all children ages 3 years (+potty trained) through 6th grade. The clubbers (kids) are broken in to 3 groups: Cubbies are 3-5years (non-kindergarten), Sparks are Kindergarten – 2nd grade, and T&T are 3rd - 6th grade. Each group does 3 things each regular club night: Book Time (learning verses and their meaning), Council Time (Bible stories and devotionals), and Game/Snack Time. Clubbers are urged to study their books at home not just during club time. Awards are given out based on sections passed. Parents, this is a wonderful opportunity to help your kids and also learn what they are learning in Awana. Leaders are Arundel Baptist Church members and each has gone through the Awana Basic training given at Arundel Baptist Church. We follow special guidelines in working with children to keep them safe; we have an open door policy for parents to pop in anytime, and welcome parents to visit whenever they can.
Our Awana group also picks a new missionary every year to send offerings to. Each regular club night we give clubbers an opportunity to put money in the missionary bucket and there is a $500 goal for the year. We are happy to say we have exceeded our goal every year for many years. The missionary has a bulletin board in the fellowship hall (circle and game time room) where you can read the latest updates, see the goal thermometer, and find out how to contact them should you desire to.

If your child has never been to Awana we would invite him/her to visit once or twice before deciding and paying the fees. We do require the completed registration form even for visitors. We hope to see you at our next regular club night!
