AWANA Returns August 25

Wednesday Evening - 5:30-7:30pm

Dinner provided from 5:30-5:50pm   

Awana creates an exciting, fun, and energetic environment where kids can grow to know, love, and serve Christ. The kids enjoy unleashing their enthusiasm and natural energy through exciting games and activities while building confidence and team spirit. Spiritual growth is nourished through Bible truths and a self-paced system of scripture memorization. Music, games and small groups encourage a deeper understanding of God’s Word and get kids excited about learning more about Him.  

For the 2021-2022 AWANA year:
-We are asking one parent from each household to serve two evenings over the course of the AWANA year (September-May).  These parents will be our VIPs (Very Important Parents)!  Our VIPs will serve wherever the need is for that particular night, no training will be necessary, and all parents must complete a background check and screening form before serving.  After registering your child(ren), you will be immediately redirected to a Signup Genius where you will be able to pick your dates.  Our VIPs will be in addition to the 200 weekly Leaders we need to make this ministry happen!

-After careful evaluation, Oakwood has decided the most effective way to maximize our AWANA ministry is to begin AWANA Clubs for children age 3 by September 1st of this year.  We will no longer be offering Puggles for two-year-olds.

*Cost: $25 per child for the first two children, $10 per each additional child for each school year.  Funds will provide handbooks and a T-shirt or vest.  You can register your child at the welcome desk in the children's building on Wednesday evenings.

For more information please contact Laura Wolf at   for PreSchool and Jody Burkhalter at  for Kinder -5th grade.
