Connecting Kids with Christ
Connecting Kids with Christ

AWANA is an international non-denominational ministry that assists churches in reaching children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by training them to serve Him.

At Bethany Bible Church, we are here to provide a safe and fun ministry with a single purpose – to win and grow kids for Christ!

Engaging Kids with Fun Activities
Engaging Kids with Fun Activities

Our leaders instill Biblical principles through weekly themes, handbook studies, team games, and council time.

The fun doesn’t end there. Clubbers receive awards for completing sections in their handbooks and are given the opportunity to purchase prizes using “AWANA Bucks” earned throughout the year.

The AWANA season is capped off with an end-of-the-year awards ceremony, where clubbers and their families gather to celebrate the year’s accomplishments.

How do you keep my children safe?

The security and protection of your child is of utmost importance to us at Bethany Bible Church. Planning Center Check-ins is the secure check-in system we use for AWANA. This system expedites the check-in process and allows us to partner with you in keeping your child safe.

Checking in is simple and will only take a minute. If you have never checked in your child at BBC before, you will need to visit the check-in table with an attendant. They will input your information (name, phone number, etc.) and get your child checked in the for the first time.

Once your information is in our system, you can simply use your 10 digit phone number to check-in at a self-serve station each week upon arrival. Or, for even quicker check-in, download the Church Center Mobile App from the App Store or Google Play Store to check-in using your phone. Then, upon arrival, simply scan the QR code at a self-serve station.

• Keep you security sticker with you. It is needed to pick up your child.

• Please notify us of any allergies your children may have. This will go on their name tag to help our staff be aware of your child’s needs.

My child has an allergy or other special need, how is that handled?

During registration, please be sure to note any allergies or special accommodations you would like us to be aware of. This information will then be printed on your child’s security tag and noted in their leader’s handbooks.

What if my child does not finish their handbook?

At Bethany Bible Church, we encourage all kids to complete their handbooks each year. However, we recognize that each child will go at their own pace.

Clubbers who do not finish their handbook will start where they left off the previous year. If your child is transferring in from another AWANA program, we can resume their current progress.
