12 FAQ's about ABF Awana Program

1) What is the cost?
$150 per student 
$100 per student if a family member volunteers. Volunteer Code is VOLUNTEER50
Free for ALL NEW FAMILIES and for families experiencing FINANCIAL HARDSHIP.  
Code for new families and those experiencing economic hardship is ABF2020. We want to be a blessing to our community.  Please invite your friends and neighbors. ABF never wants finances to keep your kids from growing in their faith in Jesus.

2) What will Awana look like in light of the CDC Guidelines?
We will hold all activities outdoors on our vast campus. We will continue to have our game time, but will reinvent it with distancing and minimal touch. Lot’s of hand sanitizer will be available.  Awana will continue to have one-on-one memory verse mentors and small groups. Bible teaching and application will continue to be a large element of the evening.  We are still working out the logistics but we will be doing everything outdoors in small group rotations for distancing purposes.

3) How will you keep our kids safe on-campus?
Our commitment is to follow the ever-changing CDC Guidelines. Before, after and in-between events the ABF campus is thoroughly cleaned with antiviral cleaning products. Social distancing is a new practice for our children so parents will need to help hold their children accountable through conversations before coming on the ABF campus.  Our Awana leaders will be giving reminders but would prefer not to be full time guideline police.  This would hinder their relationship with sharing the Gospel. So we kindly ask that you prepare your children ahead of time.

4) Will you do temperature checks upon arrival?
Right now this is not part of the CDC Guidelines, but we have the thermometers available if this does become a CDC guideline requirement. We ask that parents be vigilant to keep sick kids at home and report any children that have been tested positive for Covid-19.

5) What will be the protocol if someone in Awana tests positive for Covid-19?
Each week attendance will be taken for students and volunteers. Everyone that has been on the campus will be notified. The facility will undergo an intense deep cleaning.

6) What will happen if CDC Guidelines change and Awana is not allowed to meet on-campus?
Awana will move to Zoom On-Line Small Groups. Due to cost of books, uniforms and supplies there would not be a reimbursement.

7) How many students will be able to be enrolled in Awana?
We anticipate a smaller number to enroll this fall.  Last fall we enrolled 120 students and we had 60 volunteers. ABF has a large campus that can accommodate an even greater number than this and still have appropriate social distancing. 

8) Will the different age-group clubs have a cut off number?
A cut off would completely depend on how many parents volunteer. For example: In our Cubbies (3-5 year olds) program we will cap the group to 10 children with 4 volunteers in one group.  If we have enough volunteers we will open a second group. In Sparks and T&T, we would like to have a 4 student to 1 volunteer ratio.

9) How many weeks is Awana?
12 weeks in the fall and 14 weeks in the spring

10) Will you be serving snacks in Awana?
We serve snacks for special occasions. During this Covid-19 season we will only serve packaged snacks.

11) What is the start date of Awana?
Volunteer Training is scheduled for 6PM on Tuesday, September 8. 
The First Night of Awana is scheduled for 6-8PM Tuesday, September 15. 

12) What can I do to help?
Please PRAY for God to oversee all our plans and decisions as we want to honor Him, disciple our students and keep everyone safe and healthy. Thank you!!!

ONE OF THE BEST AWANA PROGRAMS THAT YOU WILL FIND

FOUR DECADES AT AGOURA BIBLE FELLOWSHIP

 

SOME AWANA HISTORY:
Based in the Chicago area, Awana is the only organization with fully integrated evangelism and discipleship programs for ages 2 (age 3 at ABF) to 18 that actively involve parents, church leaders and mentors. Each week, more than 2 million children and youth, 400,000 volunteers and 127 field staff take part in Awana Clubs in more than 27,000 churches around the world. AWANA is an acronym that means Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.

Awana works with churches from 100 different denominations. It began as a children's program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago in 1941. Lance Latham, North Side's senior pastor, collaborated with the church's youth director, Art Rorheim, to develop weekly clubs that would appeal to churched and non-churched kids, lead them to trust Christ for salvation and grow them in enduring faith and service to God. Other churches learned about the success of the program and inquired about its availability. In 1950, Latham and Rorheim founded Awana as a parachurch organization.
  - USA: Today, more than 11,500 churches run Awana Clubs with programs in all 50 states.
  - 100 other countries: Awana can also be found in more than 16,000 churches, schools and orphanages in 100 other countries.
