Frequently Asked Questions

Can I visit the other Alliance Church Awana club occasionally?

We recommend you remain at the same location the full school year. Sparks (K-2nd grade) and T&T (3rd-6th grade) students can visit other clubs occasionally, but their awards will only be given at their registered location. Cubbies (pre-K) must remain at the same location the full school year.

Can my kids bring friends?

Sparks (5K-2nd Grade) and T&T (3rd-6th Grade) are encouraged to bring friends at any time during the school year. Visitors must meet the age demographics of the program they plan to attend (Sparks or T&T).  

To make check-in quicker, you can sign up a first-time visitor here. If the student plans to attend at least once per month, please complete our full registration form: 

Financial assistance is available upon request. 

Do we need to attend Awana at the same Alliance Church location each week?

Yes, our goal is to have the same quality Awana at both Alliance Church locations (Hortonville and Appleton). When you register for a specific location your books, awards and uniforms will be at that location. Before registering, please decide as a family which Awana club will be your home.

How much does Awana cost?

  • Books - Cubbies and Sparks $15.00, T&T $16.00
  • Uniform - Cubbies and Sparks $12.00, T&T $20.00
  • Book Bags (Cubbie/Sparks) - $7.00
  • Yearly Dues - 45.00/student
     

Is financial assistance available?

Yes, we want all students to be able to attend AWANA. To discuss need-based scholarship opportunities and availability, please contact Andrea Klarner at aklarner@aac.church.

Is there a deadline for registration?

  • Cubbies (pre-K) is a closed program and all participants must register prior to the first night of Awana. (Please refer to the above requirements for Cubbies registration and attendance).
  • Sparks (K-2nd grade) and T&T (3rd-6th grade) students can register any time during the school year.
     

Is there a parent meeting for Sparks and T&T?

Sparks and T&T Parent Meetings are hosted via Zoom in the month of August or September. Details are sent out to parents who have registered a child and posted on the Discovery Land Facebook page. You can also sign up for Parent Link to receive updates about parent meetings and other important details. In the meantime, if you have questions, please use the contact form below, and our team will be in touch. 

My child has special needs, can they attend?

Alliance Church has a wonderful ministry for students with special needs so that all participants can be happy, successful and safe during AWANA. To ensure that support is available for your child, we ask that you contact our Special Needs Ministry Coordinator khildebrand@aac.church prior to registration. For more information about the Special Needs Ministry at Alliance please visit our special needs page

What are the requirements for registering my pre-K child in Cubbies?

  • At Alliance Church, we value the role of each parent as their child’s primary spiritual coach. Therefore, Cubbie parents must attend a mandatory 60-minute parent training so they fully understand the Cubbie program and expectations. This also allows families to get the most out of their Cubbie experience. 
  • We value total-time teaching. Children must use the restroom as they arrive on campus each night to avoid multiple bathroom breaks throughout the night.
  • Children need to be 100% potty-trained prior to the first night of Cubbies.
  • To ensure maximum benefit, Cubbie parents will work with the child during the week on a workbook activity and memory verse each week (average 20 minutes a week).
  • The Cubbie vest is important for your child’s safety and workbook progress and must be worn each week.
  • Due to limited space, Cubbies is open to children who attend one of our Alliance Church locations. If you are from a non-evangelical church home and would like to join, please contact the Director of Discovery Land for more information.

What does the name “AWANA” Stand for?

The name Awana is an acronym for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed,” which comes from their key verse: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15, KJV). At AWANA, we develop resilient disciples who love studying God’s word to deepen their relationship with Him. 

Will my child be safe at Awana?

Safety and security is our top priority in Discovery Land. All volunteers have background checks and are trained in all security standards and safety procedures.

Special Needs

We value and love every child, which is why we have designed our One2One Ministry. One2One focuses on children with special needs. Our goal is to create a safe, fun, educational experience for all children while meeting their individual needs.
