- Doors open and Leaders will be ready to receive clubbers at 6:30 p.m. Club starts promptly at 6:45 P.M. and clubbers should be picked up promptly at 8:00 P.M.
- Upon arrival all clubbers should go directly to their club room unless otherwise instructed by their leaders.
- Respectful language always is expected before, during, and after club.
- Care and respect should be shown for church property.
- Pushing, shoving, roughhousing and bullying is not allowed.
- Running is allowed only on the Game Square during certain games.
- Leader supervision is required for clubbers to enter the church office area.
- Cell phones, iPods, video games and other electronic devices should be left at home and not brought to club. If a parent requires their child to keep a cell phone it shall remain on vibrate and not be used without the permission of a leader. This includes sending text messages.
- After every activity, the commander, director, or leader in charge will begin counting from one to five. By the time number five is reached, each clubber is expected to be waiting quietly for instructions for the next activity. In Awana, leaders and clubbers are taught to respect the “five-count”.
- Commanders and directors utilize the “three-count” for individuals not following club behavior standards. If a clubber receives three warnings in one meeting, he or she will be sent to the Awana Commander who will notify the parent of the infraction. Clubbers who have received a “three-count” may return to club in the future if they agree to abide by the club rules. The commander will determine whether the clubber will serve a one- or two-week suspension from club. If a clubber shows disruptive behavior, they will be removed from the group for the remainder of the evening.
- Uniforms can be worn when clubbers have completed their entrance booklet. Upon receiving the uniform, the clubber should wear it to every regular Awana meeting.
- Awards are presented only to clubbers who are in uniform.
- All requirements of a handbook section must be completed by clubbers in one club meeting to be signed off by a leader. A maximum of two helps per section is allowed. Normally, only five sections may be passed in one club meeting.
- Address Awana workers respectfully – Mr., Mrs., or Miss.
- Game Time is a privilege. In cases of extreme disorderliness, it may be revoked for a night by the commander or director.
- At the end of club, Cubbies, Sparks and T&T will remain in their room with their leaders until their parents or guardians arrive to pick them up.
- The parking lot can be an extremely dangerous place. All clubbers should be with their parents while walking on the lot. Clubbers are prohibited from playing unsupervised on the parking lot.
*** Sick Children ***
We ask out of respect for other children and the leaders, if your child is sick or has or had a fever within the last 24 hrs. that you don’t bring them to Awana. If we are made aware of an obviously sick or feverish child, we will contact the parent/guardian to return and pick them up.
*** Snow Policy ***
If Harford County Public Schools are closed, close early or evening activities are canceled due to inclement weather, there will be no Awana for that evening. We will make every attempt to post weather related announcements on the Fellowship Chapel Facebook page and/or the Chapel website at fellowshipchapelmd.com by 5 PM that evening.
