2018-2019 AWANA CALENDAR

AWANA MEETS WEDNESDAYS (September-May) at 6:30 p.m. for PUGGLES, CUBBIES, SPARKS AND T&T; SUNDAY evenings (September-May) at 5:00 p.m. for TREK AND JOURNEY

  

Awana is a globlal, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. Awana is a nondenominational ministry that assists churches in reaching children and teenagers with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him.

How does Awana fulfill this mission? Through God's guidance and power, Awana strives to:

  • Reach kids - Awana reaches kids for Christ through fun, Scripture-rich experiences that lead them to know, love, and serve Him.
  • Equip leaders - Awana equips ministry leaders and parents to reach and disciple kids who impact their generation with the gospel. 
  • Change the world - God is at work changing the world through evangelism and long-term discipleship ministry of Awana.

The weekly Awana club is comprised of three segments: Game Time, Small Group Time, and Large Group Time. During Game Time, boys and girls play games on a unique Awana Game Circle. In Small GroupTime, children work through age-appropriate handbooks memorizing Bible verses and doing activities about missions and community service, doing Bible studies. They earn awards based on their work. The final segment, Large Group Time, consists of Bible stories, missions and lessons based on Christian principles.

Besides weekly meetings, other Awana activities occur throughout the year. AwanaGames and Sparks-a-Rama competitions bring area churches together to compete in games. Bible quiz meets allow kids to test their knowledge of scripture. The clubbers craft wooden Grand Prix cars and compete in races.

 

  Puggles (2 by Aug. 1)

Puggles recognizes the learning ability of 2 and 3 year olds by introducing Biblical precepts at church and equipping parents to teach them at home. Toddlers love having their own Awana Club just like their older siblings. Parkway requires parents to be involved in an activity at church on Wednesday night for their child to be involved in Puggles, i.e. Awana leader, Bible study, Youth leader, Adult Choir.



    Preschoolers (3 by Aug. 1-Pre-K)

Cubbies celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (ages 3-5 years old) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word. Creative learning activities encourage parent-child interaction at home. Weekly Bear Hugs include memory verses, Bible lessons and activities that teach basic truths about God, Jesus, sin and salvation.

 

Kindergarten – 2nd grade

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. The handbooks cover the Old and New Testaments, with exciting biographies that show kids that people in the Bible were real! The books also include memory verses, Bible lessons and activities.

 

3rd- 6th Grade

The T&T (Truth & Training) curriculum teaches kids the truth of God's Word, trains them to follow Him and practice His grace. T&T is a fun and engaging Bible study for upper elementary students to learn and engage in the grace of God. Each handbook covers 30 Bible studies, loads of extra credit, plus a fun story about T&T Super Agents.

 

 7th-8th Grade
Awana Youth Ministries has launched a curriculum that challenges students to wrestle with the three most important questions they are asking in middle school:

Who am I?                 Why am I here?                  Who's with me?            

By allowing students to dive deep into the Scriptures and answer these questions for themselves as we allow them to own their faith and discover what they actually believe.

 
9th - 12th Grade
Journey establishes high school students as lifelong disciples through a deep study of God's Word, mobilizing them to love with godly perspective and evident faith.
 

 

All Awana activities meet from September to May. Cubbies, Sparks and T&T meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:15 p.m. Trek and Journey meet on Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:15 p.m.
