AWANA helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong
children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our programs offer a proven approach
for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
As a ministry leader for nearly 60 years, AWANA is making an impact.
A recent national survey found AWANA to be as important to our alumni's spiritual foundation as
all other church activities combined. Among alumni who participated in our programs for at
least six years, 92.7 percent still attend church at least weekly as adults!
The AWANA club for preschoolers is built on two premises:
·Young children can and should receive spiritual training.
·Home is the primary place for spiritual training.
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, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program
into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.
The AWANA club for children in kindergarten through second grade builds on the
material taught in our preschool clubs. The curriculum takes kids a step deeper into
God's Word while giving unsaved boys and girls regular opportunities to hear
the gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ. After being immersed in solid foundational
teaching at the preschool level, boys and girls frequently come to an understanding
of their need to trust Christ as their personal Savior while in Sparks.
Truth in Training:
The name Truth & Training reflects the passion of AWANA to teach third
through fourth-grade boys and girls the truth of God's Word and to train them to
follow Christ in their daily lives. Our goal is that many of today's young people will
become tomorrow's church leaders. T&T is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow - today.
Evangelism and discipleship go hand in hand in our third- through fifth-grade program.
By the time a child has completed T&T, he will have:
·Learned and reviewed approximately 310 verses
·Studied dozens of passages from the Old and New Testament
·Regularly heard and read the gospel message
·Discovered the Bible's response to questions like "How does God want me to
live my life?" and memorized verses to back up these answers
·Completed missions projects that help him see the world through God's eyes.
