For over six decades, the Lord has used the ministry of Awana to reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world.
Awana is a ministry focused on providing Bible-based evangelism and discipleship solutions for ages 2-12. As the global leader in child and youth discipleship, Awana gives children the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus, no matter their background.
Kids represent the greatest opportunity to make a long-term impact on our world for Christ.
Awana establishes welcoming, supportive environments where kids from every background and cultural setting learn how a personal relationship with Christ affects their everyday lives.
Held every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00pm at the Englewood campus, Awana is the perfect opportunity for kids ages 2 through grade 5 to have fun, memorize the Bible, and grow in their faith.
2-3 yrs old
The Puggles Club is an enriching program for 2 year olds and younger 3 years olds where simple biblical concepts are presented to the tiny tots through teaching cards, activities, music, and games.
3-5 years old
Cubbies 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. The Cubbies curriculum features two handbooks written in a fun, storybook style that appeals to preschoolers. Each section combines basic scripture memory with parent-child activities to help a child grasp a simple biblical truth.
Sparks club meetings combine learning with fun to create an atmosphere of irresistible excitement. The curriculum takes kids a step deeper into God’s Word while giving clubbers regular opportunities to hear the Gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ.
The name Truth & Training reflects the passion of Awana to teach third through fifth grade boys and girls the truth of God’s Word and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives.
T&T is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow – today. Each of the four handbooks in our Truth & Training clubs investigates four questions. Eight answers from the Bible are provided for each question. Children will learn all eight answers to each of the questions and verses to back up these answers. The handbooks also include Bible studies and activities that allow children to delve into the subject matter and build a foundation of biblical wisdom through memory verse drills and review of key doctrine and the Bible.

Although not required for Puggles thru Sparks, preparation at home is highly recommended. The Clubbers have a goal of completing one book per year. The level of difficulty with this task increases as the Clubbers get older and build on previous memorization. The goal is obtainable but requires time during the Awana night and may help to have at home preparation. Each child will progress with encouragement from their Awana leaders and home support.
Truth & Training will have about 15 minutes of Awana book work per week. The C-Track (6th-12th grades) will require all work and memorization to be prepared at home.
