Awana Clubs logo


“Love in Action” describes the atmosphere of Awana.  It is a global ministry for ages three through high school that actively involves parents.  It is a discipleship program that teaches children how to know, love, and serve Jesus.

During the Awana evening there is mentoring, Biblical teaching, and a game time that encourages good sportsmanship.  Christ’s love and sacrifice for us is conveyed during large group time.

From September to May our Awana club meets every Wednesday evening from 6:45pm to 8:15pm.  It begins with the opening ceremony in the gymnasium.  The children rotate every 20 minutes to: handbook time, large group time and game time. 

Awana was formed in 1950 in Chicago and its two fold mission remains today: to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.  Awana stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” (II Timothy 2:15).

Awana club meetings are brimming with life enriching experiences for young people.  Loving leaders guide children through Bible based curriculum.  Clubbers learn that God is real, that He loves them, and He can be their personal Savior.  The truths of God’s Word is taught and application to their daily lives is stressed.

If you ask the kids, they attend Awana Club at Emmanuel because it’s fun!
