Awana Parent Information 2018-2019
We are excited to have your child/ren be a part of our Awana Club at Lincoln Hills Bible Church. The name Awana stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. It is taken from Scripture: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15) Our goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to serve Him. It is open to kids age 3 through 6th grade and consists of several clubs organized by age and school grade.
Cubbies - boys & girls, ages 3 –5 (2 years prior to kindergarten)                  
Director - Michelle Weideman        
Sparks - boys & girls, grades K – 2nd
Director - Maryann Randall
Co- Director - Rose Kelly

Truth & Training (T & T) - boys & girls, grades 3rd – 6th
Director - Brook VanderWey 

Parents, please help your child/ren in the following ways:
  • Assist them in studying handbook sections.
  • Congratulate them upon their achievements.
  • Let the leaders know of any special needs or concerns your child may have.
You are welcome to visit club meetings at any time. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s Awana commander or other leader with any questions or concerns.

Our typical club night’s schedule:

6:15 – 6:30            Check-in
6:30 – 6:40             Worship (feel free to stay with your child and worship with us)
6:40 – 6:45            Opening Ceremony (Flag & Prayer)
6:45 – 8:00            Handbook Time, Council Time and Game Time
                        Each club has a schedule for the above three segments in varying order.

8:00 **Dismissal – Parents please come into the building and pickup your child/ren from their room.

If we have inclement weather (snow/ice), we will cancel club if the Sioux Falls School District calls off school. However, if the weather gets bad during the afternoon or evening I will try to make that decision by 5 pm.  We plan to utilize technology to get the word out (text, e-mail, website). If you don’t regularly check these, please let me know and I will try to call you as well.
We are very excited about this year and look forward to working with your kids. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
