AWANA - "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed"
What is Awana?
The name Awana is an acronym that stands for approved workmen are not ashamed. It is taken from the Bible in II Timothy 2:15 which reads, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."
As one of the fastest growing youth organizations, Awana provides a local church-sponsored program for boys and girls of all ages. Our hope is that all club members will develop faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and then build on that foundation to become obedient servants of God.
Awana at Hoffmantown Church is staffed with volunteer leaders who are church members. Each is chosen for their commitment to Jesus Christ and their love for kids. These men and women are concerned about each young person and spend many hours training and preparation for this ministry.
Why Do Kids Enjoy Awana?
Awana clubs are loaded with exciting activities! Three segments (game time, handbook time and council time) provide start-to-finish adventure. And there is a purpose in each.
Every Awana club meeting has a game time, which includes age appropriate team and individual competition. Dozens of organized games allow everyone to participate in teach teamwork and sportsmanship.
Using achievement-oriented learning segments (sections), Awana training emphasizes the importance of God’s word for sound living. Clubbers progress through graded handbooks, working individually and together with their leader.
This is a general session for everyone. It is a time for group Bible study, followed by awards and recognition for individual handbook progress and for points scored in team play.
Awana activities extend beyond weekly meetings. Special events include Bible Quizzing and Grand Prix just to name a couple of the year-round exciting activities.
