AWANA Bible Club
"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15 (NASB)
AWANA is a weekly club for children age 3 through grade 6 with the goal of reaching boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and training them to serve Him. Club themes build on one another and include Cubbies for preschool-age children, Sparks for Kindergarten through 2nd grade, and T & T for 3rd through 6th grade. Students meet from 6:30 - 7:30pm (6:15 to check in) on Wednesdays during September - May. The program includes game time, handbook time to learn verses, and council time, where kids learn lessons from God's 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.
