Awana is a fun and challenging club that meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm – 7:30 pm. In Awana children memorize scripture, learn about the people and events of the Bible, develop character skills, and regularly receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. We currently have four clubs: Cubbies, for kids age 3-PreK; Sparks, for kids in grades K-2; T&T (Truth and Training) Adventure, for kids in grades 3-4; and T&T Challenge, for kids in grades 5-6. The components of the club include and handbook that allows children to learn at their own pace, a uniform that promotes unity and a sense of belonging, and awards that are earned as each child completes each section of the handbook. Club night is broken up into three components: Large Group, Handbook Time, and Game Time. During Large Group, kids and leaders sing and worship and have a large group message. During Handbook Time, kids break up into small groups of no more than five children per leader, enabling us to give them appropriate guidance and develop relationships. In Game Time, the kids laugh and play in a fun and exciting environment.

Awana is a non-denominational program designed to help parents and churches prepare children for a life of faith and discipleship, and to teach them the immeasurable value of hiding God’s Word in their hearts. The name Awana is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, derived 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.” A recent national survey of Awana alumni who participated in the program for at least six years showed that an amazing 92.7% still attend church weekly as adults!
