What is Awana?
The Why Behind The What
"We believe that the sweet spot of discipleship happens at the intersection of highly relational and highly scriptural. Awana calls this "The Great Connection." This disciple-making approach is at the core of every Awana program."
While Awana is a very adaptable program, there are a few core elements. The program typically runs for an hour and a half to two hours and includes:
- Large Group - Large Group is a time for a Bible lesson, worship, recognition, skits, or anything else that would bring growth as a whole.
- Small Group - This is a time for discipleship, prayer, and Scripture memory.
- Activity Time - During this time, leaders get to know their students in a different environment through games, crafts, puzzles, or team-building activities.
