Welcome to the Awana Children's Ministry at Bethel Gospel Chapel, North Bay

Awana is a place where your kids can learn about the Bible, meet new friends, and have lots of fun. It features curriculum, activities, and games designed for each age group, and it takes kids on an exciting journey through the Scriptures. Weekly studies and memory verses show children how the Bible applies to everyday life. Our team of volunteers looks forward to working with your children at Awana club!

Guiding principles of Awana: 

1.      Centered on the Gospel of the good news of salvation 

2.      Scripture memorization is fundamental

3.      Engage with children in a fun an exciting way

4.      Children and youth are trained to know, love, & serve Jesus Christ.

5.      Awana is built on, and actively promotes, strong leadership skills

This website is a resource for parents, clubbers and leaders to access Awana information and to keep track of the weekly progress through the Awana program. The calendar below will be kept as current as possible, but is subject to change as new events are added, so please check back often!

Parking 

To increase children’s safety, especially during the winter season, we block off the full lower parking lot directly across from the chapel with pylons/ropes to prevent children from having to cross the main drive. We ask all parents/guardians to please drive all the way up the hill (without stopping at the main entrance), and to park in either the lot to the right near the gym or along the edge of the line of trees. Those parents/guardians with Cubbies or Sparks must escort their child(ren) along the sidewalk to the front doors for drop-off and pick-up. We place large plastic bags over several of the designated accessibility parking posts/signs in the gym area parking lot to make more spots available for families. All volunteers who do not have young children in the program are asked to park in the upper parking lot. Finally, please consider backing into your parking spot so that when you leave, you are moving forward and thus have a better view of all children.

Cancellation Protocol 

During the Winter months, when we experience a Tuesday in which there may be severe weather and/or road condition concerns, the Director will gather information throughout the day and then make a formal decision at 4 pm as to whether or not club will run. Please note that cancellation of some/all school buses in our area does not necessarily mean that our club will be cancelled. If club is cancelled, your family should receive an email from your child's Director shortly after 4 pm; otherwise, club will run.

 

AWANA GRAND PRIX (SAT JAN 13, 2024) POST-PONED DUE TO WINTER STORM WARNING. NEW DATE IS NOW SET FOR SAT JAN 27, 2024.
