A Wednesday evening club for children from 3-years old through sixth grade that meets from 6:30 - 8:15 on Wednesday evenings during the school year. Awana is divided by ages into three groups -- Cubbies, Sparks, and Truth & Training (known as "T&T"). Our goal is to reach boys and girls, and their families, with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Tim. 2:15). In Awana, your child will find new friends, exciting games, challenging contests and awards, and most importantly, they will learn more about God and the Bible and how to understand and apply Biblical truth.
A typical Awana evening consists of four segments:
1. Opening Ceremonies -- Clubbers gather in the Worship Area for opening ceremonies and announcements, then rotate through the next three.
2. Game Time -- Clubbers participate in a high-energy game time featuring individual and team competition. Kids have a great time unleashing energy and enthusiasm around the Awana circle.
3. Handbook Time -- Each clubber has a book they work through, memorizing and learning different key scriptures. With the encouragement and guidance from parents and leaders, kids are rewarded for their achievements as they progress through their books.
4. Council Time -- Each group hears a special message directly from the Bible.
TREK & JOURNEY
This is an exciting new addition to our AWANA club! Trek is designed for 7th and 8th grade middle school students. This curriculum encourages students to think through their beliefs, discuss God's will regarding societal issues and challenge students to address how they see themselves serving God. Journey works with 9th-12th grade high school students. As these student continue to grow and mature, we want to challenge them to look at the world from a Godly perspective and actively live out their faith.
