Awana is coming to Christ United Methodist Church!
Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him. Club Time at Awana includes interesting Scripture-based lessons, awesome crafts and other activities centered on God’s Word, the Bible. We play games with friends, and earn awards! We also send home age-appropriate handbooks for the kids to work throughout the week.
Depending on the age, your child will be a part of one of the following groups:
Cubbies celebrate the spiritual potential of preschoolers (potty trained 3 to 5-year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word. Whether it’s the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their Cubbies friends, preschoolers simply love it.
Sparks ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids (K-2nd grade) to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ. Handbook activities, Scripture memory, and Group time take your child on a journey through the entire Bible.
Truth &Training (T&T) engages 3rd through 5th 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.
Trek challenges middle school students to wrestle with the three most important questions they’re asking: Who am I? Why am I here? Who’s with me? By encouraging students to dive deep into the Scriptures and answer these questions for themselves we allow them to own their faith and discover what they actually believe.
Journey establishes high school students as lifelong disciples. In depth Bible studies focus on Christian living in a way that is relevant to teens. Teen Awana members also have the option to participate as Leaders in Training and help with the younger kids. High schoolers who complete the Awana program through Journey may even be eligible for Awana college scholarships.
