Frequently Asked Questions
The following answers are specific to AWANA at Calvary Chapel Chino Valley and may not apply to AWANA programs at other locations.
Q: What does “AWANA” stand for?
A: The AWANA name was derived from the first letters of “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” as taken from 2 Timothy 2:25, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Q: What is AWANA?
A: The AWANA organization is a global, non-profit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.
The AWANA program strives to reach kids and equip leaders to change the world. Kids are reached for Christ through fun, Scripture-rich experiences, and leaders are equipped to reach and disciple kids with the gospel through resources and relevant training content that help to develop them into vibrant leaders. During AWANA, kids are placed in groups based on their grade and gender and rotate through three areas: game time, small group, and large group.
- Game time is packed with fun and exciting activities for the kids.
- The small group time provides more personal interaction between AWANA servants and the kids. Kids recite Scripture they have memorized during the week and are mentored by their group leader. There is additional time for kids to grow in Christ together as they fellowship with one another.
- The large group time brings kindergarteners through 6th graders together in one room for worship and a message. The kids are taught lessons from the Bible that remind them of how great our God is and about His great love for us.
Q: Is the AWANA registration fee prorated for those who join later in the school year?
A: No. Unfortunately, we are unable to prorate the registration fee. The registration fee covers apparel, handbooks, awards, and other necessary materials that your child receives regardless of when he/she registers.
Q: What if I just want to attend Sunday night service? Do my children need to be registered for AWANA?
A: No. Registering for AWANA is not required for your children to be cared for during the Sunday evening service. If you will be attending service every week, we encourage you to register for AWANA to enjoy all it has to offer, but it is not required. We also welcome guests who would like to see what AWANA is all about! First-time students receive an introductory handbook.
