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 6:45PM – 8:30 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.

We have a small issue that we need to bring to all parents attention. As most of you know we have a small entrance from Hwy 9 to the Chapel parking lot. The same small entrance is also the exit. With so many clubbers this year, we want to make sure we have some sense of order when dropping off and picking up clubbers. This helps ensure the safety for all. With that said, I would like to remind everyone that when you enter the parking lot to drop off, please go around the chapel to the right and drop off just prior to leaving the parking lot. The same needs to happen when picking up clubbers. Please enter and go to the right around the Chapel and wait your turn to pick up. If everyone does this, we typically can get everyone out in less than 10 minutes. Most of you are doing this already and we really appreciate this. If you are not following this traffic flow for drop off and pick up, please start doing so to ensure the safety of all people.
Some parents like to come in to pick up clubbers. We always have an open door policy for parents, and are not changing this, but if you come in, we will need you to park out of the way of traffic flow and wait until all clubbers who are waiting for parents in line are gone. This is the only way we can ensure the safety we need. If you have any questions, feel free to speak with me, Bob Crawford, Awana Commander, 641-985-2014.
