Awana  Leaders

  • 1. What is AWANA?
    AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, which is based on 2 Timothy 2:15: Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. With the central focus of Scripture memorization, Awana is an engaging way for children and youth to grow in their faith and understanding of God's Word.
  • 2. When is AWANA?
    Awana meets on Wednesdays, at 6:45–8:15 PM. Families are encouraged to arrive between 6:30–6:45 PM to allow time for clubbers to be properly checked in and get ready for the Opening Ceremony. Our 2023–2024 Awana year begins on September 20th, 2023, and ends on May 15th, 2024. See our Awana calendar for meeting dates and breaks.

  • 8. Check-in & Pick-up Procedures
    Awana begins at 6:45PM and ends at 8:15PM. Please be on time for check-ins and prompt for pick-ups. Check-in opens at 6:30PM in the Courtyard. Parents/guardians must check their clubber(s) in with the club leaders. Clubbers will then proceed to the Sanctuary for the Opening Ceremony. Clubbers may be picked up in the Courtyard except for Cubbies, who will be picked up from the Cubbies Classroom. Only authorized individuals are allowed to pick up clubbers. These are parents/guardians and individuals listed as Authorized Contacts in the clubber’s registration. In the event of rain, parents may proceed directly to the Sanctuary to get their clubber(s) checked in.
  • 9. Safety & Wellness Policy
    At FHBC, we take every precaution to ensure the safety of the children in our ministries: We practice the “Two Adult” rule where children will never be alone with just one adult. All Awana leaders have completed a background check.
