A little history...
The Awana Clubs (ministry) began here at CCCI in the fall of 2000. Patricia Huang became the first Awana Commander, who oversees all of CCCI Awana operations. With this new ministry at CCCI in 2000, the word quickly spread; more and more kids showed up each Friday as they prepared for a tremendous night…
What is the purpose of Awana?
Awana stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" and is based on the Bible verse of 2 Timothy 2:15. Our dream is that all children and youth throughout the world would come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. The meetings are run by trained leaders who use games and competitions to show children that learning to walk with God can be FUN! We encourage everyone to bring their children to Awana, and to invite your friends' children as well!

How can parents get involved?
It is important for parents to help their children review the Bible verses they are memorizing and learning each Friday. Parents can also ask their children what they are learning at Awana and participate in activities that require parental presence (see the ministry calendar).
