AWANA

Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ.  Our programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.   Awana has a goal of leading kids worldwide to know, love and serve Christ.

As a ministry leader for 60 years, Awana is making an impact. A recent national survey found Awana to be as important to our alumni's spiritual foundation as all other church activities combined.  Among alumni who participated in our programs for at least six years, 92.7 percent still attend church at least weekly as adults!

Each week, more than 1.5 million kids ages 2 to 18 participate in Awana.  Over 12,000 churches in the U.S. and more than 10,000 internationally run Awana programs that change young lives through biblical truth.

Our Awana club for preschoolers is built on two premises:
  • Young children can and should receive spiritual training.
  • Home is the primary place for spiritual training.
Our preschool program meets these needs through FUN – and lots of it!
 
Awana is fun with a purpose – to reach and train kids for Jesus Christ. Games, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.
 

The Cubbies curriculum features handbooks written in a fun, storybook style that appeals to preschoolers. The handbooks contain 24 Bear Hug sections along with six optional special-day sections. Each section combines basic Scripture memory with parent-child activities to help a child grasp a simple Biblical truth. Two extra-credit handbooks containing additional memory verses and character-building activities are also available.

Before starting a handbook, newcomers to Cubbies are taken through an introductory brochure that gives parents and children a brief overview of the program and presents God’s plan of salvation at a preschooler’s level.

In addition, all memory verses are presented at a level appropriate for 3- and 4-year-olds. For example, John 3:16 reads: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son...”

Our Awana club for children in kindergarten through second grade builds on the material taught in our preschool club. 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. After being immersed in solid foundational teaching at the preschool level, boys and girls frequently come to an understanding of their need to trust Christ as their personal Savior while in Sparks.
 
Immersing kids in God’s Word

The Sparks program is firmly grounded in Scripture. The three handbooks feature:

  • Basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible
  • An increased emphasis on Scripture memory over our preschool materials. In three years, a child will learn and review 68 verses, many of which cover salvation and key Christian doctrine
  • Clear and consistent presentation of the gospel message
Fun learning = results

Sparks club meetings combine learning with fun to create an atmosphere of irresistible excitement for churched and unchurched kids alike. Club meetings are divided into three segments:

  • Bible teaching, worship, award presentations and the gospel message
  • Small group interaction and completion of Bible-based lessons
  • Age-appropriate games on the Awana game circle

Along the way, Sparky, the friendly firefly, encourages boys and girls to learn verses and complete assignments throughout the three handbooks

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 and today.
 
 
 

T&T stands for Truth and Training, and we are a club for 3rd-6th grade boys and girls.  Our passion in AWANA is to teach the third through sixth graders the truth of God’s Word, and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives. 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 equipped with a variety of dynamic tools to accomplish this mission.  We work through four different handbooks over the four years, each with a different focus.  The kid’s handbook includes a fun and engaging Bible study for the students to learn and engage in the grace of God.  Each handbook contains 30 Bible studies, memory verses, loads of extra credit (extra verses and extra Bible studies), plus a fun story about T&T Super Agents.  Our four missions are Grace in Action, Evidence of Grace, Agents of Grace and Discovery of Grace.  Each night we will work through the Bible study, recite and review verses, play fun games to build relationships and study God’s Word together.  

Evangelism and discipleship go hand in hand in our third- through sixth-grade program. By the time a child has completed T&T, he/she will have:

  • Learned and reviewed approximately 310 verses
  • Studied dozens of passages from the Old and New Testament
  • Regularly heard and read the gospel message
  • Discovered the Bible’s response to questions like “How does God want me to live my life?” and memorized verses to back up these answers
  • Completed missions projects that help him see the world through God’s eyes.
