We meet every Wednesday night in the Fellowship Hall
at 6:15pm. (EXCEPT during the summer)
There are classes for kids 4 years old through 6th grade.
What is AWANA?
It’s a club where kids learn about the Bible and how to apply it through games, lessons, and memorization. AWANA has been one of the best and most fun ways for kids to learn scripture for 60 years!

What will my kids do at AWANA?
Each club night consists of 3 segments, Game Time, Handbook Time, and Counsel Time.
Game Time – Exciting, high-energy, and competitive games that encourage teamwork, and following directions.
Handbook Time – A small-group time to memorize and recite scripture and be rewarded for what you’ve learned! Handbooks used for AWANA also contain great application activities to help the lessons learned from scripture useful for everyday life.
Counsel Time – Is a large group lesson centered on the most important lesson of all – The Gospel of Jesus Christ!
My kids are already in a lot of activities. Why do they need AWANA?
As kids in AWANA earn awards and badges for their accomplishments, they’re not just having fun, but they’re learning lessons that will help them for a lifetime!

What responsibilities does an Awana parent have?
God gave parents the job of raising their children to know, love, and serve Him. Awana was created to assist parents in this task.
In both the Bible and Awana, parents are the primary teachers of their children, and should be helping kids to learn verses at home. The kids then bring their verses to Awana where their leader listens, explains, encourages and rewards them for their hard work. They are also trained to minister to your child and lead them to Christ for salvation.
It is not the job of your child’s Awana Leader to teach your child Bible verses each week. They are here to reinforce your efforts and reward kids with patches, wings and jewels. Leaders are prepared to help children learn additional verses after all known ones are recited.
Parents are also expected to help their child’s AWANA leader a few times during the year. This gives you the opportunity to see what your kids are learning, first hand. It also gives our leaders the extra help needed to be able to give each child the attention he/she needs to win the awards they are working toward.
Parents need to purchase books, uniforms and pay yearly dues.
Our AWANA team at Immanuel Baptist Church is excited to bring this opportunity to the kids of our church! Space is limited!
