We are super excited to begin our 14th year of Awana Clubs at Judson Baptist with you and your children!

MANY THANKS to all of you who have registered your children and taken advantage of the Early Bird $5 discount off ordering now through Wednesday, August 30th! YOU make our lives easier on the first night! 🙂

The online registration and order forms are up and running in case this has slipped by some others. 😉 We need you to register today! We have a new registration form this year that should make it easier for you, especially if you have multiple children you are registering. Please remember that you also need one order form per family. You can CLICK HERE to register and to order supplies. Scroll down to the Awana event to see the links.

We look forward to seeing you on the FIRST NIGHT of Awana Clubs AND the simultaneous mandatory PARENT NIGHT in the Soul Summit Room 3105 at 5:45 PM on August 30th! ALL parents in attendance will have their names entered in a drawing to win a FREE family registration and supply fees and there will also be other prizes at the end of the night! See you at on August 30th at 5:45pm in the Soul Summit Room 3105!


We are looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday, August 23, for the Leader Training Meeting at 6:00pm in the Soul Summit Room 3105! We will have light snacks for you so come a little early to snack and fellowship! 🙂

PLEASE NOTE: IF you need childcare for your child(ren) from babies through 4th grade, please RSVP the names and ages of your child(ren)to Veronica Winder at veronica.winder@judsonbaptist.com. This is to make sure we have enough people scheduled to care for them while you are in the meeting.

Please take your child(ren) to these 3 different rooms at 5:45pm:

  • babies and toddlers to Room 1117
  • 2 year olds to Room 1119
  • 3 years old through 4th grade to the Awana Game Room 1102

You will pick up your child(ren) in the same room where you drop them off.

The children who are 3 years old through 4th grade will be separated by age groups based on how many children attend on Wednesday night. Any student in the 5th grade and older is encouraged to attend the youth activities located near the Gym. The Merge group (5th-6th graders), the Middle School Ministry (MSM for 7th-8th graders), or the High School Ministry (HSM 9th-12th graders) meet during the time of the Awana Leader Meeting.

Awana Clubs Parents and Leaders,

Even though it’s still July, the Leadership Team has been planning for the next Awana Clubs year which will begin one week early this year on Wednesday, August 30th. (We will end two weeks early on April 25th for Awards Night.)

We want to let you know that the Early Bird Registration and Ordering is ready for you! The sooner you can register and order your supplies, the better prepared we will be and you will help make our job easier. 🙂

The online registration and order forms are up and running. We have a new registration form this year that should make it easier for you, especially if you have multiple children you are registering. You may recognize it from VBS! Please remember that you also need one order form per family. *There is an Early Bird $5 discount off ordering now through Wednesday, August 30st!* You can CLICK HERE to register and to order supplies. Scroll down to the Awana event to see the links.

(Special note for rising 5th grade parents: If your child has graduated out of the Awana program and you would not like to receive any more Awana updates, please reply with request for removal of your email. We know that they will now receive communication from Merge, Judson’s 5th and 6th grade ministry. We are so thankful to have had them in Awana Clubs for the year(s) they have been with us and are excited for them as they  build spiritually on everything they have learned in Awana Clubs!)

In His service,

Your Awana Clubs Leadership Team

THANK YOU to EVERYONE (9 Directors, 80 Leaders, many Parents, and 154 Clubbers) who helped make this 2016-2017 Awana Clubs year at Judson Baptist Church a God-honoring and fantastically fun year! Last night we wrapped up the Awards Night with the church-wide Ice Cream Social and put year 13 in the books! Please pray for your 9 Directors, 2 Commanders, and 1 Children’s Pastor as we begin to prepare this month for the next year: Awana Clubs 2017-2018, here we come! 🙂

If the Lord Jesus is stirring your heart as a Judson Baptist church member to be involved in Awana Clubs for the first time next year, please contact Pastor Jack Oliver at jack.oliver@judsonbaptist.com to see where you can serve the Lord in Awana Clubs!

AWANA:  Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed  2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”



3 things to remember for tomorrow’s Award Ceremony and Ice Cream Celebration night:

  1. Take your ice cream (no nuts, please!) to the Gathering Room before 5:45pm.
  2. Sparks, if you are missing any jewels, badges, or pins, see Sparks Director Linda Harlan in the foyer between 5:15-5:45pm.
  3. ALL Clubbers and Leaders, please be in uniform in your designated pew at 5:45pm.

What a fantastic year we have had! See you in the Sanctuary at 5:45pm! 🙂

It’s the crazy night of the year: Double Bubble Bucks Night is here on April 26th! On this last night for sections for Sparks and T&T, all points earned count DOUBLE for the Awana Store NEXT WEEK on May 3rd and EVERYONE  gets Dubble Bubble Gum galore!

Cubbies say Bear Hug 25 and 26 and Puggles have a regular night on Wednesday. We need all the Student Leaders serve this night as scheduled. 🙂

All Leaders: RSVP to your Director by Wednesday for the Leader Luncheon on Sunday, April 30, so we will have enough yummy food for you and your family!

Check out the Calendar page for the last few dates of this year!

Fruit cups galore!

Grab some fruit cups for tonight’s theme night and you’ll be helping Front Porch Ministries minister to bunches of kids this summer!

Remember to bring FRUIT CUPS tonight! 😊

T&Ters: If you are finished with your book and are working on the extra credit Silvers and Golds, remember that each Silver section counts as 2 sections and is worth 100 points and each Gold section is worth 50 points! Many of the Gold sections are something you do or make at home and bring to club. All Silver sections are a review of the previous Discovery verses and also add 4 new verses to go along with that Discovery question.

Any T&Ter who is planning to say the big gold section of reviewing the entire book in one sitting needs to email Commander Julie at philandjulie@yahoo.com to schedule a 20 minute time before or after club for a Wednesday between now and April 26. This is Gold 8:2 in the 3rd grade red Book 1 and Gold 8:1 in the 4th grade blue Book 2. This is huge extra credit and not required to finish the book, but anyone who does receives an extra award on Awards Night. 🙂

Next Wednesday, April 5th, is Fruit of the Spirit Night! 🙂

  • Please remember to bring  fruit cups (the kind you pack in a lunch box) to club on Wednesday for one of our ministry partners, Front Porch Ministries!
  • Sparks and T&Ters receive 50 points toward the Awana Store for bringing fruit cups! Show them to your Room Secretary, then put them in the box outside the Soul Summit Room 3105.
  • Cubbies and Puggles, please put your fruit cups in the box at the preschool desk downstairs.

ALL LEADERS: if you would like to “recycle” your leader pin from last year(s), please turn those in on Wednesday. Feel free to keep your cumulative year pins if you want! We will soon order new leader pins for you to receive at the Leader Luncheon on Sunday, April 30th. And please tell your Director by April 19th how many members of your family will be there with you! 🙂

After spring break, we are back on schedule for Awana Clubs this Wednesday, March 29th!

  1. Cubbies will say Bear Hug 22. 🙂
  2. Sparks and T&T have only  5 more nights to say sections before the Awana Store Night on May 3rd! Say what?!?
  3. Leaders, we need your RSVP for the Leader Luncheon on April 30th in the Gathering Room! Please let your Directors know how many in your family are coming with you for the lunch. Thank you to ALL of you who have already said you are coming!
  4. Student Leaders serve this Wednesday. 🙂
