You have a strong desire for your child to know and understand who Jesus is. Often we are still figuring out, as adults, how what Jesus did impacts our lives; giving our children a head start is how we do what’s best for them.
Parents have different conversations with their children about Christ but there is a feeling and desire to build upon those conversations with age appropriate activities done in groups of other kids. Awana is that group.
What Is Awana?
The main purpose of Awana is to reach children with the gospel of Christ. The gospel is presented often, and the children are given a chance to respond. Awana strives to train children to serve Christ. Scripture memorization is a key tool needed to be able to win the battle over sin. Awana uses motivational elements, such as earning individual awards, to keep them interested and excited about learning Bible verses.

Details About Awana at Foothills
During the school year, Awana meets every Wednesday from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
While each gathering is casual, our weekly event provides structure and consistency, two things our children thrive on. Our weekly agenda consists of:
- Opening Ceremony (10 minutes); Jeanne Nation, our children’s minister, leads the group in fun songs or games, an opening prayer, and makes any announcements that the entire group needs to know.
- Game Time (25 minutes): Fun and games on the Awana Game Square.
- Handbook Time (25 minutes): Clubbers meet with individual leaders to pass achievements in entrance booklets and handbooks.
- Missions Time (25 minutes): Clubbers learn about missionaries and ways that they can engage in missions.
If you’d like your child to begin attending Awana, or if you’d like to try it out, we ask is that you pre-register your child so we know to expect them. If you have any questions please contact Jeanne Nation, email@example.com.
