AWANA is a Bible club for children ages 3 through 6th grade. It is an evangelistic program that provides a fun environment for children to learn about Christ and develop a habit of reaching others by bringing friends and neighbors to church. AWANA provides children with an opportunity to learn more about the Christian faith; the program is filled with weekly games, theme nights, award opportunities, and Bible handbook time. Your children will have blast at AWANA as they learn to reach the world.
If you have any questions about our AWANA program, please contact our Children's Ministry Director, Kristine Prince, by calling 589-0424.
Awana Puggles is an enriching program for your pre-Cubbies kids (usually older 2-year-olds and younger 3-year-olds) that presents basic Biblical concepts:
Awana Puggles teaches toddlers simple lessons through teaching cards, activities, music and more. Then parents—an Awana Puggle’s first and best teacher—can step in to reinforce the lessons with take-home cards that include ideas to point out God’s work each day. And little details like Awana Puggles T-shirts, puzzles and coloring books make every precious child feel like part of the group.
Awana Cubbies is designed specifically for older 3-year-olds through pre-kindergarten children. Awana is fun with a purpose – to reach and train kids for Jesus Christ. Games, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.
Cubbie Bear, Luv E. Lamb, Ern E. Elephant, Zip E. Zebra and Gigi Giraffe take preschoolers on a thrilling journey through God's Word. Caring, committed volunteer leaders nurture your children spiritually as Christian role models and teachers.
Bible-centered handbooks and club activities help your children begin to build a solid understanding of the basics of Christianity at an early age. Cubbies is unique because it supports parents as the primary source of spiritual nurturing. By working directly with their child on the weekly handbook lessons, parents become active participants in their child's spiritual development. Your kids will reap immediate benefits from their involvement in this exciting program. Just look at what they will learn after only two years:
• Approximately 55 memory verses – and up to 120 additional verses if they complete our extra-credit curriculum
The Awana club for children in kindergarten through second grade builds on the material taught in our preschool club. The aim of the curriculum is to take youngsters a step deeper into God’s Word while giving unsaved boys and girls regular opportunities to hear the gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ. After being immersed in solid foundational teaching at the preschool level, boys and girls frequently come to an understanding of their need to trust Christ as their personal Savior while in Sparks.
The Sparks program is firmly grounded in Scripture. The three handbooks feature:
* Basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible
Sparks club meetings combine learning with fun to create an atmosphere of irresistible excitement for churched and unchurched kids alike. Club meetings are divided into three segments:
* Bible teaching, worship, award presentations and the gospel message
Along the way, Sparky, the friendly firefly, encourages boys and girls to learn verses and complete assignments throughout the three handbooks
The name Truth & Training reflects the passion of Awana to teach third- through sixth-grade boys and girls the truth of God’s Word and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives. Our goal is that many of today’s young people will become tomorrow’s church leaders. T&T is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow — today.
T&T is equipped with a variety of dynamic tools to accomplish this mission:
Evangelism and discipleship go hand in hand in our third through sixth grade program. By the time a child has completed T&T, he will have:
