Pros: children learning about jesus!
Cons: the noise.
AWANA is not a company it is a club for children at our Church. We had approximately 160-200 children attend weekly on Wednesday evenings. I taught Second grade for two years and was a secretary for one year. The age range for AWANA is 2 yrs to 6th grade. Children are like sponges, the can soak up the Word of God and apply it in ways we never dreamed. The have a game time, hand book time, mission time and snack time. They truly enjoy this. Most children memorize at least 6 scripture verses each night! They earn awards and have special challenges and have contests...it is great fun! Seeing the kids run in the door to check in, so they can say the verses they have learned is so enjoyable. The hardest part would be the fatigue and the noise that many children can produce...but it's a good tired. We all feel that way (the other workers). My husband kept working at it for many years, then began working with older children as our son aged, I again began Youth work.
