AWANA Clubs are fun programs designed to bring children into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and equip them to serve Him. The clubs are age-specific but all use games, fun weekly themes, small group interaction, individual achievement and large group instruction to reach this goal.
At Evergreen, our clubs meet every Wednesday night during the school year (September – May). We do not schedule clubs on nights when Michigan City Schools are not in session, We also cancel clubs when school is canceled due to weather. When cancellations occur, they are announced on the “Welcome” page of this website and on WEFM radio (95.9 FM)
The clubs meet from 6:30 to 8:15. Each club has its own cycle of activities including game time, handbook time, and council time. The four clubs are listed down the left edge of this page. Clicking on the club name/icon will take you to its page.
In addition to regular club night activities, special events are arranged in the course of the year, sometimes for all of the clubs, and other times a specific club. Each club has its own traditions, but generally there is at least one outdoor event sometime in the spring. When the weather is pleasant, games are played outside rather than in the gym.
A favorite annual event is the AWANA Grand Prix. This is a race with pine cars on a gravity track. There are trophies for speed, car design and originality of design (for things that don’t look like cars!). We have a great time with the whole family as we race against each other in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
