CBC Awana 2023-2024



We are going to start our AWANA program this year on October 15th at a different location at:
Christ Community Baptist Church
850 Peterson Lake Road
Collierville, TN 38017
As noted previously, Collierville Bible Church is going through a floor renovation, and work is proceeding more slowly than planned. Our entire church will be still torn up for another month or so, until the middle of November. The elders and leadership of Christ Community Baptist graciously offered their Fellowship Hall, (a separate facility behind the main church sanctuary) for our AWANA ministry. Rather than delaying our start any more, we are going to conduct AWANA at Community Baptist until Collierville Bible Church is usable again.

So, on October 15th, instead of bringing them to Collierville Bible Church you can drop your clubbers off behind the main building of Christ Community, most likely at the canopied entrance on the side. Our times will remain the same, from 5:30 PM until about 7:20 PM. This location is only about 5 minutes from CBC.

The Awana program began in 1950, and clubs are currently meeting in over 9,500 churches in the United States. Awana can also be found in 2,700 churches in more than 100 other countries around the globe. The program was designed to train up young men and women who are learning Scripture and how to apply it to their lives in a fun-filled atmosphere of friends, games, and rewards.
CBC club dates mostly coincide with the Shelby County / Collierville Schools calendar. Our meeting schedule matches up with the Shelby County / Collierville School system’s schedule for breaks and major holidays so that families can plan accordingly. We did not include Veterans Day, Martin Luther King Day, or Presidents Day since these are only one day and fall on a Monday.
We are excited to see how God is going to use the AWANA ministry again this year to help your children in their growth as faithful followers of Jesus Christ. As they continue to advance through their books, earn awards, and enjoy plenty of fun games and activities, we also encourage you to invite neighbors, friends, and other family members. We are currently looking for an help in the Sparks program (K – 2nd Grade)– please contact me if you are interested.
If you would like to enroll your child in the program, please complete the registration form provided on this website and return it to the following address:
Collierville Bible Church (care of the AWANA program)
806 Wolf River Blvd.
Collierville, TN 38017
(checks payable to Collierville Bible Church)
You may also come by any Sunday evening (see attached calendar) and have your child attend a few times before enrolling.
The first club night is Sunday, October 15th; however, you are welcome to enroll at a later date.
We begin at 5:30 P.M. and end at 7:20 P.M.
The annual fee per child is $35 or $17.50 per semester. This fee helps to offset approximately 50% of the program’s expenses (i.e. AWANA store, awards, year-end picnic, and supplies.) We also are happy to waive fees for those who may be facing a financial hardship.
One of our needs is for help this year is in the Sparks program (K thru 2nd Grade). We need Sparky leaders to have an AWANA program, so if you feel led to serve, or know someone who would like to, please contact Tom O’Malley at 901-481-1531 (cell) or email me at tomlly@aol.com. If you are interested in helping, we are having a leaders meeting on August 27th at CBC at 1 PM
Feel free to call the church office at 901-854-2500 or office@colliervillebible.org with any further questions.
