Each year, we hold the Awana Food Drive to restock the food pantry we have onsite to help people in need. It’s a practical way to help kids learn what it means to give and serve others. Jesus modeled servant leadership and we hope that this event will encourage even the youngest Awana members to consider the needs of others.
Clubbers received (Nov 1) a plastic bag to fill with non-perishable food items and return the bag to Awana the following week (Nov 8). The church Deacons Team collect the bags and restocks the food pantry with the items for people in our community.

A foundational aspect of Awana Club is to learn and apply God’s Word to life!
We’ve collected a list of ideas for helping children memorize the Bible:
- Ask them to say the verses twice and ask them what the verse means
- Ask them to read the verse to themselves 3 times before they practice with you
- Sometimes it helps to sing the song or make up hand motions
- Try breaking the verse into segments while memorizing
- Write out the verse
- Ask them to keep repeating it
- Use 3×5 index cards and write a word or two on each card and then lay the verse out on the table word side up. Cards are flipped over to hide a word one card at a time, saying the verse one or two times each time a new card is flipped. Eventually all the cards are flipped over.
