“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (NKJV)

Awana Clubs make Scripture memorization fun and are geared to the needs of a range of ages and grades. And Awana works! Countless times, we've witnessed the way God has used our club to reach boys and girls for Christ. It also motivates children to learn God’s Word.
*Cubbies is the Awana Club for preschoolers during the two years prior to regular kindergarten, usually three- and four-year-olds. Cubbies is unique because it supports and maintains parents as the primary source of spiritual nurturing by directly involving them in the teaching and learning process at home. Parents of Cubbies are also required to stay at the church during the 1 1/2 hour club time. During this club time, Cubbies use the fundamental Awana elements of games and activities, Bible memorization and teaching, handbooks and awards. Every part of each week is centered around an individual Bible truth presented in the handbook that parents & child have been going over at home.
Sparks is the Awana Club for kindergartners, first-graders, and second-graders. Each club meeting has three parts. In Game Time, Sparkies enjoy entertaining games played on the Awana Game Circle. During Green Meadow Time, Sparkies gather for their age-appropriate Bible lesson. During Sparkle Time, clubbers recite Bible verses from memory, complete handbook sections, and earn awards. Sparky, the friendly firefly, appears throughout the Bible-based materials to encourage clubbers to complete their handbook achievements.
T&T is the Awana Club for third through six graders. The girls and the boys are split into their own T&T Clubs because they prefer to play games and recite verses separately. Both club groups have three segments. Game Time is when fun, exciting, team-oriented games are played on the Awana Game Circle. Council Time includes music, announcements, and a meaningful Bible message geared on the level of each child listening. Handbook Time is when clubbers meet in separate, small groups of four or five to recite Bible verses from memory, interact with their trained adult leaders, complete their handbook sections, and earn awards. All of it is done in a way that makes kids want to come back every week for more.
Come and join us any Wednesday evening that school is in session! We would love to have you with us!

Are you a Directional Parent or an Involved Parent ?
A Directional Parent tells there child when it is time to work in their handbook. An Involved Parent tells their child, "Its time for us to sit down together to work on your Awana Handbook."
