Three segments of a Club Meeting

1. Game Time: Every Awana Club meeting includes a high-energy Game

Time featuring individual and team competition. Game Time unleashes

kids' natural energy and enthusiasm. The Awana Game Circle has

universal appeal. Kids everywhere love Awana games! Everyone

participates.

2. Handbook Time: Using achievement-oriented curriculum materials,

Awana emphasizes memorization and understanding of key Bible

verses. With a trained leader alongside to encourage and guide,

clubbers develop a Bible-based view of how to know and serve God.

Clubbers are rewarded for their achievements as they progress

through the handbooks.

3. Coucil Time: The whole club gathers for a Bible message, singing,

and announcements for upcoming events. One highlight of Council

Time is the presentation of awards for individual's handbook progress

and team competition.

History of AWANA:

Awana began in 1950 as a youth program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago, Illinois. Lance Latham, a church pastor, worked with Art Roheim to develop a program that would appeal to young people, reach them with the Gospel of Christ, and train them in the Lord's work. Other churches heard about the success of the Awana program and asked if they could use it. By 1960, Awana had chartered 900 clubs, and the growth necessitated a move from the church into a headquarters building. There are currently more than 7,800 churches in the United States that have Awana clubs. There are Awana Clubs in all 50 states. Awana can also be found in over 1,400 churches in more than 90 other countries, from Argentina to Zimbabwe, from Iceland to Australia!
