Sydney is the only one of my kids right now in AWANA. Ashlee went through it and James will when he is old enough. I think it is an awesome program. It brings fun to reading the bible and memorizing scripture.
The founders of Awana derived the Awana name from the first letters of "Approved workmen are not ashamed" as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 of the Bible. Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. The program offers a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
Sydney graduated this year from the first book and because of her hard work she was given the opportunity to throw a pie in the face of her favorite teacher.
