Cubbies – for boys and girls ages3 & 4

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 you lead your child to God early so she will respect and trust Him for life.

Sparks – for boys and girls Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades

Sparks ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ. 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.

Each year, Sparks clubbers: • explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture • memorize Bible verses • complete handbook activities

The handbooks, combined with Large Group Time lessons from the WHO Do I Need to Know From the Bible series, take your child on a journey through the entire Bible!

Truth & Training – for boys and girls 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th grades

T&T engages third- through sixth-graders 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 deepen a child’s knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life.

This level helps kids stay plugged into T&T as they move into the preteen years and continue growing in their relationship with Christ.

 

♥AWANA is a Bible club which focuses on telling the Good News of Jesus Christ to children. The Bible tells us that this whole world lies in wickedness, but that because of His rich mercy, grace, kindness and love, God has provided a perfect way of salvation through what His eternal Son, Jesus Christ, did on our behalf, as our substitute.

♥Jesus commanded His disciples:

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:19-20).

♥This is what the goal of AWANA is – to teach children the Gospel message of salvation by repentance and faith in the Person and perfect, finished work of Jesus Christ. The AWANA curriculum we use goes systematically through the Old and New Testaments, teaching children about:

  • God’s perfect creation
  • Adam and Eve’s voluntary and deliberate rebellion from God
  • The curse of sin on the earth and on all mankind
  • The story of God’s promised redemption through His eternal Son, Jesus Christ
  • The story of God’s choosing of the Israelites, through the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
  • The story of the nation of Israel
  • The incarnation of Jesus Christ and the message of the Gospel
  • The mission of the Christian church
  • The reality of our sin and God’s holiness
  • The only way of salvation
  • And more . . .

♥A typical AWANA night is divided into three sections:

  • A 25-minute lesson time
  • A 25-minute small group session, where clubbers complete a worksheet about the lesson, memorize a passage of Scripture, and talk about what the lesson means
  • A 25-minute game time, with snacks

♥If you have a child in your life in grades Pre-K – 6, then we’d love to have them join us in AWANA to learn all about the great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Good News He suffered and died to bring to all of us.
