Teaching children God’s Word
What is AWANA?
The word AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
The club meeting features fun and competitive games and a message that focuses on the gospel and applying God’s Word to daily life. Trained leaders interact with clubbers to help them memorize and understand Scripture verses.
Our program is divided into six clubs and one youth group:
- Cubbies are preschool boys and girls.
- Sparks are boys and girls in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade.
- T & T (Truth & Training) are boys and girls in third through sixth grade.
- TREK is for youth in seventh and eighth grade
Meeting day and time:
During the school year, AWANA meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
More about each club:
Cubbies is the Awana Club for preschoolers two-years old by September 1st, three- and four-year-olds. Cubbies is unique because it supports and maintains parents as the primary source of spiritual nurturing by directly involving them in the teaching and learning process. Cubbies uses the fundamental Awana elements of games and activities, Bible memorization, handbooks, and awards. Non-competitive games and activities and developmentally appropriate lessons combine basic Bible truths with popular preschool concepts of colors, shapes, numbers, and letters.
Each club meeting has three parts. In Game Time, Sparkies enjoy entertaining games played on the Awana Game Circle. During Green Meadow Time, Sparkies gather for their age-appropriate Bible lesson. During Sparkle Time, clubbers recite Bible verses from memory, complete handbook sections, and earn awards. Sparky, the friendly firefly, appears throughout the Bible-based materials to encourage clubbers to complete their handbook achievements.
T&T is organized into 3 parts. Game Time is when fun, exciting, team-oriented games are played on the Awana Game Circle. Council Time is when clubbers get together for singing and Bible teaching, and are challenged to serve God. Handbook Time is when boys and girls meet in separate, small groups to recite Bible verses from memory, interact with their trained adult leaders, complete their handbook sections, and earn awards.
T & T engages third through sixth-graders by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ’s grace.
Trek challenges middle-school students to consider their destiny in Christ and pursue it through life application of God’s Word.
