The Awana program is divided into several clubs, according to age groups. A typical night is divided into three parts :

  1. Handbook Time  (Reciting verses and learning what they mean)
  2. Game Time          (Exciting games usually played on the "Awana circle")
  3. Large Group Time  (Lesson from God's Word)

2 Timothy 2:15

"Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

AWANA 2024
We meet Wednesday evenings from 6:45-8:30 throughout the school year. There are clubs for children preschool through 6th grade.

Kids can join anytime throughout the year!

Awana is an international, interdenominational, Bible-centered youth organization that provides weekly clubs and programs for pre-school through high school. The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of the phrase "approved workmen are not ashamed" from 2 Timothy 2:15.

Hey! We're on Facebook! Look for "CBR Awana Clubs" and like us!

Awana LogoThe goal of Awana is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. Our prayer is to see children and youth come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ! The heart of Awana is the gospel message---that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again; we can have eternal life in heaven and a relationship with God by trusting Jesus as our Savior. Memorization and studying God's Word is a vital part of the program.

Awana also provides an opportunity for children to learn to compete as a team and not just as individuals. They will learn to win and lose with a proper attitude of fair play and sportsmanship. Each night the teams (Red, Blue, Green, & Yellow) compete for points to see which one will emerge as the night's winner!

Throughout the year your child will have the opportunity to earn awards to display on their uniforms, as well as the end-of-year awards, to recognize their accomplishments.

Each week we have a different theme, and your child may be asked to bring certain items or "dress" certain ways to go with the themes. Your child can earn points for their team by participating. Participation in theme nights is optional.
