AWANA is a program for kids age 3 through the 6th grade. Please see below for an overview of what our AWANA clubs are like.

Preschool Through 6th Grade

Age 3: Puggles

In many circles, “puggle” is a common term for a baby platypus. In Awana circles, Puggles is an enriching program for your pre-Cubbies kids (usually older 2- and younger 3-year-olds) that presents basic biblical concepts:

  • We are a unique creation of God
  • God loves us very much 

Puggles learn simple lessons through teaching cards, activities, music and more.

The 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.

Friendly characters and leaders

Cubbie Bear, Luv E. Lamb, Ern E. Elephant, Zip E. Zebra and Gigi Giraffe take preschoolers on a thrilling journey through God's Word. Caring, committed volunteer leaders from your church nurture your children spiritually as Christian role models and teachers.

Foundational teaching

Bible-centered handbooks and club activities help your children begin to build a solid understanding of the basics of Christianity at an early age.

Grades K to 2: Sparks

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.

Sparks is divided into three years, each with a unique rank: HangGlider®, WingRunner® and SkyStormer™. 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!

 

Grades 3 to 6: Truth and Training Clubs

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.

T&T is different from other Awana programs. It is comprised of two clubs with distinct curriculum, uniforms and awards:

Additional Note:  All club meetings include a Bible teaching time, songs, games and refreshments on special occasions.  Other activities include Awana Stores, hayrides, bonfires, Awana Olympics, and Awana Grand Prix, only to mention a few.  It is guaranteed to be a great night every Awana night.
