What is Awana?

Awana is a place for kids to learn and grow in their relationship with God through intentional discipleship materials and Scripture memorization. It is an exciting opportunity for them to make new friends, play exciting games, receive awards for their achievements and connect meaningfully with one another, their leader and God. Awana stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” and is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.

The Awana program encourages children to experience God by learning His word in a regular and systematic manner. Each group has age-appropriate handbooks for you and your child to work through together. Classes are offered for kids age 3 years old up to Grade 6 on Tuesdays 6:30-8PM, September to May for 28 classes.

CUBBIES (Ages 3 & 4)

Using a combination of stories, crafts and other activities, children have a great time where fun and learning God’s Word go hand-in-hand. Covering both Old and New Testaments, lessons focus on the characteristics of God and the core truth that God is Creator, helping Cubbies grow in their respect for God.

SPARKS (Kindergarten to Grade 2)

Sparks learn God’s love and the foundation of His plan for salvation. By studying the major characters of the Old and New Testaments, Sparks begin to see how the entire Bible fits together in chronological order and God’s amazing plan for them and to redeem all things.

TRUTH & TRAINING (T&T) (Grades 3 - 6)

T&T kids will explore some of the fundamental doctrines of Christianity! They will spend time learning about the character and nature of God, the structure and sequence of the Bible, the redemption narrative and key discipleship practices! Each handbook section includes an introductory activity, a Bible study, a prayer section guiding them on how to specifically pray for different countries in the world and optional extra credit opportunities to dive deeper in their Scripture memory and study of God’s Word.
