• Awana is an international Bible-based children's ministry that encourages kids to memorize Scripture and apply it to their lives. The goal of Awana is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him.

• Awana stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed". This is a reference to the verse, 2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV): 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."

Program Cost:

Awana membership dues are $30 for one child, or $50 for a family.

This covers the cost of the clubber's uniform, handbook and awards.

Club Structure:

The Awana Club at Dorsett Village Church is composed of separate clubs based on age. Each club has a director(s) who is responsible for that club. The Commanders oversee the total club program. The club night is divided into 3 segments: game time, handbook time, and council time. Games are a time for fun and team competition, and are used to build sportsmanship and discipline. Handbook time is the chance for the clubber to show what he/she has learned through the week by reciting Bible verses and other information learned in the handbook. Council time includes a devotional message and singing.
