Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (II Timothy 2:15)

Wednesday Evenings, for kids K-6th Grade

Sparks – For kids Kindergarten through 2nd Grade

The Awana club for children in kindergarten through second grade starts  with the gospel.  The aim of the curriculum is to take youngsters a step deeper into God’s Word while giving unsaved boys and girls regular opportunities to hear the gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ.  Boys and girls frequently come to an understanding of their need to trust Christ as their personal Savior while in Sparks.

Truth & Training – For kids 3rd-6th grade

The name Truth & Training reflects the passion of Awana to teach third- through sixth-grade boys and girls the truth of God’s Word and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives.  Our goal is that many of today’s young people will become  tomorrow’s church leaders.  T&T is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow—today.

What is Awana?

Awana is a Wednesday evening Bible-centered program based on scripture memory for children age Kindergarten through 6th grade that focuses on learning God’s Word and the Gospel in a fun atmosphere.  Each week, Awana provides consistent, positive teaching and training that stresses strong moral and spiritual values.  Our clubbers learn about the reality of God and the truth of the Bible.

Awana is a parent-driven ministry that shapes your child through the limitless power of God’s Word.  Awana staff and trained leaders, together with parents, create a spiritually nurturing environment to help kids grow in their knowledge of Scripture and their walk of faith.

Awana is achievement-oriented and achievements are recognized and rewarded.  Awards are given for handbook progress, Sunday School and Club Attendance, and participation in special events.

When is Awana?

Awana meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30PM – 8:00 PM during the school year.

An Awana Night

Awana meetings will be a time filled with energy, fellowship and spiritual growth.  Each of our children’s clubs has its own unique meeting format, but in general Awana meetings are 105 minutes and feature three main segments:  Game Time, Handbook Time and Council Time.

Game Time is comprised of exciting circle games exclusive to Awana that are a popular draw for children.  Council Time is a large-group setting consisting of praise and worship, Bible teaching, awards, announcements and presentation of the gospel.  Handbook Time provides small-group interaction, recitation of Scripture that kids learned during the week, friendship building and opportunities for leaders to mentor children and help them understand the Bible verses they memorize.

Please feel free to speak to one of our Leader’s or the Church Office (563-547-4343) for more information on Awana.  We would be glad to have you observe an evening with us.

A note to parents….

Week by week, your children will grow spiritually as they learn Bible verses.  Experience shows that encouragement from a parent will make a difference in the spiritual growth of your children.  Please set aside time each week to help your children study their workbooks.
