Our AWANA Club activities will be continuing through the rest of the school year!
Please join us every Tuesday, during the school year, at 6:45; join us as we teach our children Godly, moral principles that they can use as they grow into amazing adults! The AWANA Club teaches children self-discipline, moral uprightness, and Biblical truth; all within an awesome, fun atmosphere! AWANA is split into four age groups: Cubbies (3 through 5 yr olds or “the 2 years prior to Kindergarten”), Sparks (Kindergarten, Grade 1 & 2), Truth & Training (T&T) (for grades 3, 4, 5 & 6), and Trek (Middle School).
Cubbies friends include Cubbie Bear, Katie Collie and Luvie Lamb. This material was updated in 2013 and 2014 and the former “Hopper” and “Jumper” handbooks have been replaced with “AppleSeed” and “HoneyComb”. The two handbooks are completed in alternating years and HoneyComb is the handbook for the 2014-2015 Awana year.
Sparks friends include Sparkie the firefly and children named Chloe, Joel, Jacob and Chloe’s dog Sebastian. The three-book series books are called HangGlider, WingRunner and SkyStormer. If a clubber completes all three handbooks they earn the Sparky Award Plaque and Pin as second graders.
T&T (truth and training) friends include children and the dog, Streamwood. The books are called Ultimate Adventure 1 and 2 and Ultimate Challenge 1 and 2. There is an award for each book completed between Grade 3 to Grade 12 – Alpha Award (one book), Excellence Award (two books), Challenge Award (three books) and Timothy Award (four books).
Trek is designed to help youths answer the questions “Who are you?”, “Why are you here?” and “Who is with you?. It has three years worth of lessons so the program can be used for Grades 6, 7 and 8 depending on local school and church preferences. The Trek curriculum is being revised from the former Billboard, Roadsign and Dashboard Series to Trek One, Trek Two and Trek Three. Trek One made its debut in 2014. Trek Two and Trek Three will be available in 2015 and 2016 to complete the Trek update. Additional awards available are the Milestone Award for completion of a Trek handbook and Meritorious Award for the completion of any six Awana handbooks between Grade 3 to Grade 12.
