The AWANA ministry embraces five principles:

In addition, other activities, such a Bible Quiz, AWANA Grand Prix, Sparks-a-Rama, AWANA Games and a week-long Summer Camp are a part of the AWANA Program. These are all important aspects of our AWANA Club.
Trained adult volunteers work in all of our clubs. All volunteers go through a background check. We require that all volunteers go through AWANA Orientation & Training. In addition, youth who aspire to serve others as a Student Leader in AWANA can be involved.
We ask that all clubbers pay dues of $35.00 per year. We ask that you pay for the full year at the beginning of the year, if possible. The dues are used to pay for awards that the clubbers earn, for their handbook and uniform, and for incentives for the clubbers throughout the year.
Please note: We want all clubbers to be able to have the books and uniforms. If the cost of these would impose a financial hardship on your family, call the AWANA Commander or talk to any of the Directors. Financial help is available.
Club for Kindergarten through 6th grade meets weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m. Trek and Journey meet on Monday nights from 6:30–8:30 p.m. All Clubs meet at:
South Hill Bible Church

When picking up your children from AWANA at 8:30 p.m., please come inside to get your children. There is too much traffic in the parking lot to have your children wait for you outside. For the safety of all, please park and come inside the church to pick up your children.
There is a registration form and medical release that needs to be signed by the parents and returned with the child when he/she comes to AWANA on Wednesday or Monday night.
Forms for yourself or a friend may be obtained from the AWANA Secretaries at check-in, or from the Commander or a Director.
