WHAT IS AWANA

AWANA is an international, nondenominational, Bible-centered, Christian youth organization providing weekday club programs. Clubs are specifically designed to help students of all ages work at understanding and applying scriptural principles in every-day life, and are dedicated to reaching boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that they may know Him, love Him, serve Him, and tell others about Him and His redeming love.

The name AWANA is an acrostic derived from “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” and is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 of the Bible (NIV). " Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worlman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."

AWANA Club meets each Wednesday from 6:15-8:0o. All students will receive a bible bag, bible, and handbook. These items are needed each Wednesday in addition to sneakers and a memorized verse.

  • OPENING CEREMONY: greetings, pledges, and songs of praise. 
  • GAME TIME; exciting games that include both individual and team competitions.
  • BIBLE TIME:lessons are developed for each age group from the Bible about the Lord and His love for us.
  • HANDBOOK TIME: small-group interaction and recitation of scripture that kids learned during the week. it also features friendship building and opportunities for leaders to mentor children and help them understand the Bible verses they learn.

When entering, please use the educational entrance on the west side of the Church and be sure to always sign your child in and out. Only persons authorized as contacts on the registration form will be permitted to sign-out clubbers. Picture identification may be requested.

We follow the Fredonia Central School calendar. Please refer to their website at www.fredonia.wynric.org/ for scheduled closings as well as cancelations due to inclement weather. Closings and other program information is also posted on our FFUMC Facebook page.

Thank you, for your children, your involvement, and your committment to Christ.
