AWANA Club Meetings
Weekly meetings have four components: An opening ceremony, large group time, small group time, and game time. The opening ceremony includes flag salutes, music, announcements and prayer. Large group time includes a relevant Bible lesson and prayer. Small group or handbook time emphasizes individual instruction/interaction between clubbers and leaders. Leaders help clubbers through their handbooks by reviewing lessons and listening to the clubbers recite scripture they have memorized. To reward and encourage the clubbers for earned achievements, awards are presented each meeting. Game time is not only fun, it teaches sportsmanship and teamwork.
