What does a typical night look like?
The Awana club night is divided into three main segments
Handbook Time: This is a small group time when your child has an opportunity to practice and recite Bible memory work and complete handbook activities. We encourage you to help your child at home by practicing with them during the week. Game Time: The Awana Game Circle provides an exciting four-team friendly competition as teams play age appropriate games. This is a great time for clubbers to practice displaying good sportsmanship by cheering on their teammates and keeping a good attitude, win or lose. (Please make sure to send your child in safe shoes, please no flip-flops or sandals, for running and participating in these high-energy games.) Large Group Time: In a large group setting, clubbers participate in singing, contests, Bible-based lessons, and receive handbook awards and club announcements. Maintaining proper supervision and safety for all children is of utmost importance for us at RVCC. Arrival time is no earlier than 6:20pm with club night beginning promptly at 6:30pm. Cubbies are signed-in & out by parents each club night in their designated classroom, while Sparkies and T&T Clubbers check-in with Awana Secretaries, upstairs in the Social Hall in the Awana Office. Cubbies rotate through each segment of their club night, all within their designated classroom and also enjoy captivating puppet shows and snack time. Sparks and T&T Clubbers meet in the gym for pre-club games with the Opening Ceremony beginning at 6:30pm; and then clubbers will begin their rotation through the three segments of their club night. Make sure to check out our club calendar to stay posted on theme nights and special events that add interest and excitement during the club year!
