The acronym Awana comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15). Awana is a program for young people, to reach them with the gospel of Christ and train them in the Lord’s work.

AWANA starts Friday, September 13, 2019, at 7pm. Save time by registering your children online. Register Online

If your kids haven’t been to the Awana Clubs at Lawndale Baptist Church, you’ll find that, after their first visit, they’ll want to come week after week! We offer games, handbook achievement and a Bible lesson that is relevant to today’s children. There are clubs for children 3 years old through 8th grade.

Please accompany your child when dropping off or picking up from the program.

Cubbies – 3 & 4 yrs old

Cubbies, a two-year program for pre-schoolers, meets at our church annex (adjacent the church building) 7:00-8:30 p.m.

  • Children are eligible to start Cubbies in September if they will be three by September 1st and are toilet trained.
  • All Cubbies must have an updated emergency card on file.

Sparks, T & T, and Trek Clubs

Please accompany your child when dropping off or picking up from the program.

Clubs for children in kindergarten through 8th grade meet at the church from 7:00-9:00 p.m. on Friday evenings.

Our clubs meet during the school year. We currently offer Sparks, Truth & Training (T & T), and Trek clubs for 3rd – 8th grade boys and girls.

Awana Leaders

Ours is a staff of qualified leaders dedicated to running a club that is exciting, fun, and safe for your child. Awana leaders have trusted Christ as their Savior, are active in the church, and have been approved by the Lawndale Baptist Church leadership.  All leaders have been screened, there is an RN on staff, security, and van service.  They also have completed basic Awana leadership training. Our leaders will make a special effort to visit you and your child sometime during the club year; however, feel free to contact your child’s leader or club director with any questions or comments you may have.

What Are Your Costs?

Uniform & Book: $14 to $25 depending on the club. Upon completion of the entrance booklet, your child earns the privilege of becoming a club member and purchasing a uniform and handbook. There is no charge for awards.

Dues: 50¢ per week per club member. The dues help pay for special activities and help the clubbers appreciate the value of their clubs.

Activities: Some of the activities organized outside of club may require a modest participation fee, such as hayride, family skate night, etc.

Special Events

Our Awana missionary organizes several events that bring together many Awana clubs from our area for fun and competition. We also organize activities for our own clubs to recognize achievement or just to plain have fun! Ask your club director for information on these and other events.

Inclement Weather Policy

You may use two methods to find out if our services have been canceled due to inclement weather:

Listen to NBC Channel 10, or visit their website for school closings.
Call the church at 215-342-1211.  Information will be left on the answering machine after 5PM.
Visit the church website for updated information.

Parent Involvement

The Awana awards system is based on a series of achievements in handbooks which include Bible memory and activities. Your child’s achievement can be enhanced with your involvement and encouragement.

Help your child memorize the sections in his/her handbook–you can even memorize the verses at the same time!

Non-reading clubbers especially need a parent’s help in completing handbooks.

Visitor participation is encouraged and rewarded. Bring children from your neighborhood.

Contact your club director for more information on how you can be involved.
