First Baptist Church Waynesville

AWANA will begin on September 6, 2017. We look forward to seeing you!

Our AWANA meets most Wednesdays from September to April  from 6:15pm - 7:45 pm.
AWANA is an international, Bible-centered, children's organization. First Baptist Church of Waynesville offers AWANA as a positive influence in the development of our children. The main objective of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and to train them to serve HIM. The acrostic AWANA comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15). AWANA leaders are committed to serve Christ. Leaders serve because of their obedience to Christ to reach people for Christ and because they love working with children.
AWANA strongly encourages hiding God's word in your heart to guard against sin by emphasizing, memorizing, and understanding Scripture (God's Word).
Drop Off/Pick UP
AWANA begins promptly at 6:15pm in the sanctuary and ends promptly at 7:45 pm in the sanctuary. For safety of all children, parents and guardians must drop off children to the child's teacher sanctuary. Again, for the safety of all children, please pick up your child(ren) from the sanctuary. Parents and Guardians are required to sign each child out.

The AWANA program at FBCW consists of three segments: Game Time, Handbook Time, and Council Time.
GAME TIME offers clubbers the opportunity to participate as a team in physical activity. Being part of a team builds team spirit, good sportsmanship, coordination skills, and self-confidence. Gym shoes are recommended.
HANDBOOK TIME consists of interactions between individual clubbers and their leaders. Clubbers recite verses and answer leaders' questions about the Bible. Once the clubber has covered the handbook material adequately, the leader will sign the handbook and the clubber will receive awards.
COUNCIL TIME includes announcement, testimonies, a Bible message presenting the Gospel, and instructions on applying Bible truths to everyday living.
The first entrance booklet is free. If your child misplaces his or her entrance booklet, a replacement may be purchased for $2.00. Upon completion of the entrance booklet, a handbook is required to continue the program. Handbooks are $8 - $10 each.
Clubbers are encouraged to wear their uniform each week. Uniforms can be purchased from the AWANA office and the cost can be found in the class descriptions above.
