Awana = Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.II Timothy 2:15

Awana is an international, non-denominational, Bible centered children’s ministry. It is for 3 year olds (by September 1, and potty trained) through 6th grade.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and Oregon government mandates, Awana is offering a much smaller In Person Awana club this school year. We will have approximately 35 clubbers and 15 volunteers to comply with the 50 person Oregon mandate for indoor church events. Due to the size restriction, only Lake Bible Church Families and returning Awana Families will be eligible to register this year. Lake Bible Church families will be given first priority.

Everyone will be wearing masks, social distancing and following CDC guidelines. We will not be offering the Cubbie club of Awana (3 and 4 yr olds) due to the challenges of having preschoolers wear a mask and social distance.

General Information

Following the school calendar year, we meet Wednesday evenings from October to early June, 6:30–8:15 PM.

Each weekly club meeting is broken into three different elements:

  1. Game Time: An energetic and fun time for children to participate in active, team-oriented games around the game circle
  2. Handbook Time: Focused, small group time reciting Bible verses and gaining understanding of spiritual truths
  3. Council Time: Large group teaching time where children are encouraged by an adult in the principles of God’s Word using drama, object lessons, and instruction
Children are grouped into clubs by age or grade as follows:
  • Cubbies: 3 and 4 year olds *(Closed this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.)
  • Sparks: Kindergarten through 2nd Grade
  • Truth and Training, Girls: 3rd through 6th Grade
  • Truth and Training, Boys: 3rd through 6th Grade
