** Unfortunately 2019-2020 Awana Cubbies Club is Full and no longer accepting new registrants. Anyone registering from this point forward will be placed on a waiting list. **
If your kids haven't been to the Awana Clubs at Derwood Bible Church, you'll find that, after their first visit, they'll want to come week after week! There are 3 clubs, Cubbies, Sparks and T&T for children 3 years old through the 6th grade. We offer games, handbook achievement and a Bible lesson that is relevant to today's children.
To learn about the specific clubs please select the club logo below
WHEN DO YOU MEET?
Wednesdays 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. during the school year (Sept 18, 2019 through May 13, 2020) at Derwood Bible Church. It is never too late, children are welcome to join Awana any time during the year unless we reach our max for specific clubs. If this occurs your name will be added to a wait-list and contacted should room become available.
WHAT ARE MY COSTS AND HOW DO I REGISTER?
By completing the Start Zone booklet your child earns the privilege of becoming an official member of our Awana Club. Membership includes: handbook, uniform, awards, and tons of fun activities!
Registering for Awana is a multi-step process, but don't worry it is easy.
Step 1: Please complete our Emergency Information Form. You only need to fill this out once for your whole family.
The following part is different from previous years
Because of changes to our internal system, we need you to register each child individually. So you will complete the following form for each child. Embedded in the form is the option to pay online. You will select the registration and materials that applies to that child and the total cost will be calculated. Then you will be presented with the option to pay online or to pay later (either by cash or check on the first night of Awana). Please complete this step even if you intend to pay later. If you aren't sure what your child will need, that's ok. Take your best guess and select "pay later" and we can get it worked out on the first night.
Here are some hints :
There is a registration fee for every child. Your first child registered will be $20.
Every child will need a book for their club
If it is your child's first year in their club (Cubbies, Sparks, or T&T) they will need a vest/shirt.
If it is their second or more year in Cubbies or Sparks they won't need a new vest unless they outgrew their old one.
If they are going into 5th grade they will need a new T&T shirt, the Blue T&T shirt (5th & 6th grade) instead of the Green one (3rd & 4th grade).
Step 3+: Repeat Step 2 for each child you are registering for Awana. Make sure to select the $15 registration fee for these.
Awana is a national organization with many products available. Book bags, Bible verse/music CD’s, learning aids, and other fun stuff may be purchased directly from Awana at: store.awana.org (DBC does not receive any of these proceeds).
WHO ARE THE LEADERS?
Ours is a staff of qualified leaders dedicated to running a club that is exciting, fun, and safe for your child. Awana leaders have trusted Christ as their Savior, are active in the church, and have been approved by the Derwood Bible Church leadership. They also have completed basic Awana leadership training. Please feel free to contact your child's leader or club director with any questions or comments you may have.
WHAT IS MY ROLE AS A PARENT?
The Awana awards system is based on a series of achievements in handbooks which include Bible memory and activities. Your child's achievement can be enhanced with your involvement and encouragement.
Help your child memorize the sections in his/her handbook and answer any questions in the handbook -- you can even memorize the verses at the same time!
Non-reading clubbers especially need a parent's help in completing handbooks.
Our Cubbies director uses parent helpers to assist during club or to bring a snack. Please let the director know when you can help once in a while.
Bring children from your neighborhood to club.
Contact your club director (look for the yellow shirt) for more information on how you can be involved.
LOST AND FOUND
Sometimes we find items left after club. Please mark your child's belongings. Check with your club director or church office if you are missing something that may have been left at club.
