AWANA Club Program
Forge Road Bible Chapel is excited to be able to offer the nationally recognized AWANA Club program for young people ages Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. AWANA is an acronym taken from the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15: Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.
Our club meets on Tuesday evenings at the FRBC facility during the school year from 7-8:30pm. Children are challenged both spiritually and physically in a fast-paced learning environment geared toward their age level. For children ages three and four, there is the Cubbies program; for kindergarten through second grade, the Sparks program; and grades three through six, the “Truth and Training” program.
Each evening is divided into three structured and supervised events: Game time, where boys and girls compete as teams and are encouraged to develop physical skills as well as good sportsmanship; handbook time, where children recite Bible verses learned at home and gain understanding as to what those verses mean to them personally; and council time, where stories and guest speakers challenge the boys and girls with spiritual lessons. As the AWANA pledge states, the AWANA Club goal is “to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ, and to train them to serve HIM.” Come out and be part of the fun!

What is AWANA?
AWANA is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love, and serve Him.
AWANA reaches kids for Christ through fun, Scripture-rich experiences that lead them to know, love, and serve Him.
Kids represent the greatest opportunity to make a long-term impact on our world for Christ. Offered through local churches, community groups and homes, AWANA reaches kids where they’re at and walks alongside them in their faith journey. Those kids who come to faith at an early age discover God’s purpose for their lives and hope for the future. Ministry leaders and parents witness the profound impact Awana has in reaching kids with the gospel and watching them grow as long-term disciples. That’s why so many families and leaders have returned year after year, week after week, for more than three generations.
FRBC AWANA Clubs
* In the event of inclement weather we will follow Baltimore County School procedures. If schools close for the day, let out early, or cancel evening programs we will not have AWANA that evening. If schools start late – we will have AWANA. There may be dates when AWANA is scheduled but schools are closed, like Election Day or spring break, then continue to follow this calendar. *
