Awana helps churches and parents to raise children and youth to know, love and serve Jesus Christ. On Wednesday evenings in Awana, children have the opportunity to study, and memorize verses from the Bible that will help them grow in their relationship to God and learn how to follow Jesus in their everyday life. Games, friendships, singing, and special events and activites make Awana an exciting place to be! Each night is divided into three segments: In Game Time, kids participate in relays and otheer excting games on the Awana Circle. In Handbook Time, kids practice memorizing and studying scripture in small groups. In Large Group Time, the kids come together in a large group for worship, singing and a Bible story and lesson.CUBBIESChildren ages 3 and 4 years old are in our Cubbies program. Cubbies wiggle, giggle, sing, make crafts and learn about Jesus in ways that are just right for them.

Sparks run the gane circle with unbounded energy, work with determination in their handbooks and learn with open hearts from our leaders and speakers.
