Awana is an international, nondenominational, Bible-centered youth organization providing weekly clubs and programs for 3-year-olds through high schoolers. The acronym Awana comes from the first letters of the phrase, “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.”
(II Timothy 2:15)
Our program offers:
- Biblical teaching, basics for a relationship with God
- A foundation for a Biblical worldview
- Ultra-fun physical activity and competition
- Bible memorization
- Positive friendships
- Support for parents as they spiritually nurture their children
- In club-adult affirmation and encouragement
- Consistent and positive training on how to thrive in group settings
- Awards and recognition for accomplishments.
Awana meets Sunday nights from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., August 30th through May 1st in the Children’s Learning Center.
Awana Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of the 3- to 5-year olds in our church’s children’s ministry by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
Preschoolers can hardly wait for their next Cubbies club meeting. Whether it’s the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their Cubbies friends, they simply love it. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.
Cubbies helps your children’s ministry workers lead your child to God early so your child will respect and trust Him for life.

To many children in Kindergarten to Second Grade, Sparks is the highlight of the week! They love their red vests, the exciting games and spending time with leaders and friends.
Sparks is divided into three years, each with a unique rank: HangGlider®, WingRunner® and SkyStormer™. Each year, Sparks clubbers:
- explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture
- memorize Bible verses
- complete handbook activities

Awana T&T® engages the Third through Fifth-graders of our church’s children’s ministry by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ’s grace.
Handbooks and large-group lessons minister to your children as the lessons work to deepen a child’s knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life.
Today, 10- to 12-year-olds, known as tweens, face unique pressures, demands and distractions. These factors can result in a marked increase in discouragement, apathy and disengagement. Christian children are not immune.
Awana has responded by updating T&T to reinforce commitment, identity and community for these kids. These updates also focus the attention of leaders on the unique challenges and needs of this age group.
The ultimate message to kids of every age group is that nothing is more important than their relationship with Christ and following His way of living in the Scriptures.

Our Trek program for grades 6th – 8th answers the questions that these students are asking during this pivotal stage of life. It encourages young teenagers to recognize their DESTINY in Christ and to pursue it by following God’s will for the rest of their lives.
Our Trek students serve the Sparks for a part of the club night. This is a first step in giving back some of what they have received from other teachers and mentors during their Pre-K to 5th grade years.

Our Journey program challenges high school students to make life-changing decisions from a godly PERSPECTIVE. Through a deep study of God’s Word, they learn the meaning of lifelong discipleship and are mobilized to serve their church and community.
Journey students continue to serve our Awana club during part of the club night. Journey students are divided between Cubbies, Sparks, and T&T.
