AWANA is a Bible-memorization ministry during the school year. Its goal is to
reach boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to serve
him. This weekly program is designed to give boys and girls the opportunity to
build lasting friendships, establish positive role models, and provide practical
life lessons in a safe and fun environment.
AWANA Clubs consist of three parts:
1.  Game Time gives children the chance to play fun games while learning teamwork,
leadership, and communication skills.
2.  Handbook Time provides children with the opportunity to develop relationships in a
small group while reinforcing the Scripture memory work that they have done at
3.  Large Group Time is a session designed to offer children practical lessons in
Christian living.

Puggles for Toddlers 2-3 year old’s
(2 years old by September 1st)
Offered only at our Aitkin Campus

AWANA Puggles is an enriching program for your pre-Cubbies kids that
presents basic biblical concepts:
o We are a unique creation of God.
o God loves us very much.
AWANA Puggles teaches toddlers simple lessons through teaching cards,
activities, music and more. Puggles leaders have a leader’s guidebook to
help them plan and direct club time and communicate the lesson.
Then parents—an AWANA Puggle’s first and best teacher—can step in to
reinforce the lessons with take-home cards that include ideas to point out
God’s work each day. And little details like AWANA Puggles T-shirts, puzzles
and coloring books make every precious child feel like part of the group.

Cubbies for Preschoolers 3-5 year old’s
(3 by September 1st)

The AWANA club for preschoolers is built on two premises:
o Young children can and should receive spiritual training.
o Home is the primary place for spiritual training.
o The lesson for each week is first taught at home and then the Cubbies
Leaders teach the lesson and reinforce what your child has already learned.
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, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program
into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.

Sparks for Kindergarten – 2nd Grade
Immersing Kids in God’s Word
The Sparks program is firmly grounded in Scripture. The three handbooks
1.  Basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible
2.  A clear and consistent presentation of the gospel message
3.  An increased emphasis on Scripture memory over our preschool materials.
In three years, a child will learn and review over 65 verses, many of which
cover salvation and key Christian doctrine, establishing a foundation of
biblical wisdom.

TNT – Truth and Training for 3rd – 5th Grades
Truth & Training (T&T) is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow —
today. T&T is equipped with a variety of dynamic tools to get kids excited
about God’s Word:
1.  This year we will be going through The Agents of Grace book where kids
will explore some of the fundamental doctrines of Christianity. In these
lessons your kids will spend time learning about the character and nature of
God, the structure and sequence of the Bible, the redemption narrative, and
key discipleship practices.
2.  Each section of this book includes an introductory activity, a Bible study, a
prayer section guiding them on how to pray for different countries in the
world, and optional extra credit opportunities to dive deeper in their
Scripture memory and study of God’s Word.
3.  Our weekly meetings will expose your children to the gospel message,
Scripture memory, Bible study, awards, team-oriented games and gut-
busting fun.
4.  This is a Bible-centered curriculum that helps kids build a firm foundation for
their faith, hide God’s Word in their heart and apply the truths of Scripture to
their daily lives. We look forward to an amazing time of diving deep into
truth and training our kids together.
