About Awana Clubs
Our AWANA Clubs meet each Wednesday evening from September through April for children from age 3 through 6th grade.
What is AWANA?
AWANA is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. The name AWANA comes from key words in the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15.
What ages can come to AWANA?
Cubbies: 3 & 4 years old and 4 & 5 years old
Sparks: Kindergarten through 2nd grade
Truth & Training: 3rd through 6th grades
Where do I go?
Clubs meet weekly on Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Richfield Life Ministries Church.
Cubbies meets in the church sanctuary basement.
Sparks meets in the Fellowship Hall.
T&T meets in the church sanctuary and dismisses from the Family Life Center.
What do we do at Club?
Each club night consists of 3 segments:
Handbook Time: Clubbers recite Bible verses they have learned and think about and discuss Bible topics. Parents are encouraged to help children at home so they know the material before they come to club.
Game Time: Clubbers participate in organized team games for fun and to promote good sportsmanship. A mandatory permission slip is below.
Council Time: This is a special time when awards are presented for handbook work that is accomplished. The awards are very important to your clubber, and we make every effort to make their awards special too. They must be dressed in uniform to receive awards. Council time also is a time when a short Bible lesson is taught, we sing songs together and announcements are given.
What About Bad Weather?
When AWANA Clubs are cancelled due to bad weather, an announcement will be sent to WGRC 91.3 and 90.9 radio station. Also, an announcement will be sent on the AWANA phone tree and published on the RLMC and RLMC AWANA Facebook pages.
AWANA Clubs will be cancelled automatically according to the following policy: If BOTH the Juniata AND Midd-West school districts have a cancellation or early dismissal on a Wednesday, ALL clubs will be cancelled.
We will try to make a decision by 4:30 pm about cancelling if conditions worsen
after school is out for the day.
