Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”2 Timothy 2:15

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. The goal of AWANA is to provide a solid foundation our children need to grow and become adults who know, love, and serve the Lord. We have classes for toddlers through sixth grade, each designed to minister to your child’s developmental and spiritual needs. Age groups are from 3 years old through 6th grade and are grouped as follows:


Children Age 3, Pre-K4 and Pre-K5
AWANA Cubbies Club has one handbook, filled with Bible verses and activities for parents to do with their children at home, is completed each year. Club activities include games, puppets, crafts and verses that are memorized to receive stickers and patches for the Cubbie blue vest.

sparksStudents Kindergarten through Grade 2
AWANA Sparks’ handbooks teach basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible. They will memorize 65 verses within three years.

Students Grades 3–6
The four handbooks are each built around eight different questions about God, the Bible, salvation and Christian living. At the end of the four-year program, students will have memorized 310 Bible verses to receive the cherished Timothy Award (2 Timothy 2:15).
