AWANA helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually vibrant children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ.
AWANA is for children ages 3 years–12th Grade. Students memorize scripture, learn practical applications, play games, and earn rewards. Younger clubs focus on memory and applications, while youth focus more on the study, application, and reading of the Bible in four years. It’s truly a blessing to see young people have so much fun while doing something worthwhile at the same time!
Our club meets at Willow Creek Church on Friday evenings from 6:30–8:30pm starting in September (after Labor Day) and continuing through April. There are some Fridays the club doesn't meet due to holidays or adult retreats. Costs per child is $50 (due upon registration). It covers the cost of book, uniform, awards, and Grand Prix participation in the spring. Registration opens in August. You'll be able to register here.
AWANA is a parent involvement program where parents commit to helping their children memorize verses through the week. AWANA leaders then sign off the handbooks as the clubbers recite the verses to them during club on Friday. We are always in need of more committed adult volunteers to listen to clubbers and sign off handbooks. Let us know if you are interested in helping on a regular basis. All leaders are interviewed by the commander and background checked by Willow Creek Church. We would LOVE to have you join our leader team!
