AWANA

Our Wednesday evening club ministry for children age 3 through 12 is held September through April, 6:30-8:00pm. This program involves Bible memory and instruction along with a variety of fun games. Children are easily motivated by the personal and team incentives in age-grouped clubs. Click HERE to visit Awana's International Website.

WHAT IS AWANA? Awana is fun with a purpose… to reach and train kids for Jesus Christ. It brings churches and parents together to raise kids to know, love and serve Christ for life. It teaches kids that God is real, that He loves them and that He has expressed that love through Jesus Christ. Kids also learn how God can help them in their daily lives. Lessons from the Bible teach them how to honor God in a sinful world. The founders of Awana derived the Awana name from the first letters of “Approved workmen are not ashamed” as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15: “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth”.

There are three age appropriate Awana clubs for children age 3 through grade 6:

CUBBIES--For 3 and 4-year old preschoolers (must be 3 years old before September 1 and potty trained): Cubbies is built on 2 premises: “Young children can and should receive spiritual training” and “Home is the primary place for spiritual training”. This program meets these needs through lots of fun! There are lessons, games, puppets, crafts and other activities that make for a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.

SPARKS--For children in kindergarten through grade 2: Sparks builds on the material taught in our preschool clubs. The curriculum takes kids 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. Meetings combine learning with fun and include Bible teaching, worship, a gospel message, small group interaction, completion of Bible-based lessons and age appropriate games.

TRUTH & TRAINING--For boys and girls in grades 3 through 6: the name of the club reflects the passion of Awana to teach children the truth of God’s Word and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives. T&T is a program that trains the leaders of tomorrow - today. Weekly meetings expose kids to the gospel message, Scripture memory, Bible study, team-oriented games and lots of fun!
