What is Awana? What do kids do at Awana?


The Awana night at SVBC is divided into four segments:

  • Worship & Flag Ceremony

  • Bible Lesson

  • Handbook Time

  • Games


Worship & Flag Ceremony: All groups are together at the beginning of each night for our Worship & Flag Ceremony time in the sanctuary. After announcements and prayer, groups are dismissed to their classrooms.

Bible Lessons include age-appropriate instruction from the Bible and Awana curriculum. Topics include who Jesus is and how we can begin & grow in a personal relationship with Him.

Handbook Time consists of interaction between individual clubbers and their table leader. Each clubber has a handbook to work in. These books are divided into sections that include Bible verse memorization and other activities. The purpose of scripture memorization is to help children hide God's word in their hearts. To demonstrate memorization of verses, clubbers will need to recite the verses to their table leader with no more than 2 helps per section. By completing about 2 sections each club night, your child should be able to finish their handbook. Please partner with us by helping your child practice their verses at home during the week. Extra Resources: In addition to practicing the verses with your child, there are additional stories (and sometimes activities) you can review with your child that relate to their verses. While these additional resources are optional, we encourage you to take advantage of them, if possible.

Game time offers clubbers the opportunity to participate as team members in physical activities, which can help develop team spirit and good sportsmanship.

Awana is an international children’s program, and our church has been actively participating for over 30 years! At Awana, clubbers learn that God is real, that He loves them, and that He has expressed that love through Jesus Christ. Our Awana Leaders are committed to helping clubbers learn to know, love and serve Jesus Christ. God's Word, the Bible, promises to show us how to do that. That is why the Bible is the foundation for Awana Club and its curriculum & materials. 

The goal of Awana is to reach boys and girls for Christ and train them to serve Him. The Awana name comes from the Bible in II Timothy 2:1​5, which says: “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.”

The Awana Club dues are $40 per clubber per year.  If registered online by September 8, the discounted dues are $35 per clubber.

This money is used to offset the club expenses for awards, prizes, occasional treats, special events and club supplies.


Awana handbooks are $10 each. Handbooks are essential for every clubber as this is the book that they will work in each week. It contains the Bible verses they will be memorizing and other sections necessary in order to earn their book award.
