It is a pleasure and a privilege to have your child attend the New Paris Church of the Brethren Awana program.  We look forward to getting to know you and your child.  We strive to provide a fun learning environment that creates excitement and a desire for children to discover more about Christ.

Awana stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.”  It is based on the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15, which says:

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

Children learn about God’s Word and memorize Scripture to build a solid foundation in their faith.  They also enjoy singing, playing games, participating in theme nights, and receiving awards for their accomplishments.

Awana nights are on Wednesday evenings, September through March.  We begin with supper at 5:30 PM and end the evening at 7:30 PM.


Parents must attend the parent orientation.  We are doing something different this year and you will want to know about it.

Fees and Supplies


We have chosen to assist parents with the cost of participating in Awana by paying for most of the supplies.  Your portion of the registration fee helps offset the cost of your child’s handbook, vest or shirt, bag, and awards.  The fees are as follows:

  • $10 for each returning clubber who has the appropriate supplies (shirt, handbook, bag) for his or her club
  • $25 for returning clubbers moving up to a new club (includes (shirt, handbook, bag)
  • $25 for new clubbers (includes (shirt, handbook, bag)


Each child will need a shirt or vest to display his/her awards and to be recognized as a club by his/her dress.

When you order a shirt or vest, you will want it big enough to last the whole time in that club.  For example, if your child is starting Sparks, you will want to order a vest that will last for 3 years so you will only need to buy it once.

Uniform Sizes

Cubbies: Uniform Vest (L, XL. XXL)

Sparks: Uniform Vest (M-8, L -10, XL (12), XXL -14)

T&T: T-shirt (Youth Size 12, 14, Adult Sizes S, M, L)

You may pay for the supplies when you bring your child to Awana.  If you have any questions about paying for the supplies,  you may contact Angie McFarren, Awana Ministry Director, at
