AWANA Club for Children
TRUTH AND TRAINING CLUBS for 3-6th Graders
Handbooks and large-group lessons deepen a child's knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life.
T&T is different from other Awana programs. It is comprised of two clubs with distinct curriculum and awards.
• T&T Ultimate Adventure™ for third and fourth grades
• T&T Ultimate Challenge™ for fifth and sixth grades
T&T Ultimate Adventure™ teaches third and fourth-graders that salvation in Christ is the ultimate adventure! Kids in T&T learn that the Bible is true and they can firmly trust what it says. Each Ultimate Adventure handbook answers four questions about God and the Bible that third and fourth-graders frequently ask. Clubbers learn eight answers to each of these questions along with verses to back up these answers. The handbooks include Bible studies and activities that allow children to go deeper into the subject matter. Before working in a handbook, kids new to T&T complete a short booklet that explains God's plan of salvation.
T&T Ultimate Challenge™ trains fifth- and sixth-graders that walking faithfully with Christ is the ultimate challenge! Each Ultimate Challenge handbook answers four questions about God and the Bible that preteens typically ask. Kids learn eight answers to each of these questions, memorizing verses that back up the answers. Bible studies, activities and service opportunities take them further into the subject matter. Before working in a handbook, kids new to T&T complete a short booklet that explains God's plan of salvation.
SPARKS - K5-2nd Grade
To many children in kindergarten to second grade, Sparks is the highlight of the week! They love their red shirts, the exciting games and spending time with leaders and friends.
Sparks is divided into three years, each with a unique rank: HangGlider®,WingRunner® and SkyStormer™. Each year, Sparks clubbers:
• explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture
• memorize Bible verses
• complete handbook activities
The handbooks, combined with Large Group Time lessons from the WHO Do I Need to Know From the Bible series, take your child on a journey through the entire Bible!
Sparks curriculum is comprised of three handbooks. Each handbook builds a foundation of biblical wisdom through memory verse drills, crafts, activities and review of key doctrine and Bible facts.
Before working in the first handbook, HangGlider, all newcomers to Sparks will complete an entrance booklet – Flight 3:16 – that centers on the gospel message of John 3:16.WingRunner and SkyStormer handbooks challenge Sparkies to learn about 15 more verses than the preceding book.
CUBBIES - Ages 3-4
Preschoolers can hardly wait for their next Cubbies club meeting. Whether it's the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their "Cubbies friends," they simply love it. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.
Cubbies helps you lead your child to God early so she will respect and trust Him for life.
The Cubbies curriculum features two handbooks written in a fun, storybook style with read-aloud stories and lovable characters that appeal to preschoolers.
Cubbies Hopper and Jumper Celebrations handbooks combine basic Scripture memory with parent-child activities. One handbook is completed in a club year. Each handbook contains 24 Bear Hug sections along with six optional special-day sections. Each section combines basic Bible memory with parent-child activities to help a child grasp a simple biblical truth.
Cubbies encourages parental involvement. Your child's handbooks feature parent-child activities for home. You will need to lead your child through handbook sections, called Bear Hugs, to prepare for the next club meeting. Each Bear Hug includes optional activities, called "Under the Apple Tree," for reviewing Bible verses and lessons learned earlier.
At club, your Cubbie will review the verse you helped teach at home. Working through the handbook with your child develops your spiritual leadership and helps you to instill a lifelong biblical worldview.
Puggles® recognizes the learning ability of 2- and 3-year olds by introducing biblical precepts at church and equipping parents to teach them at home. Toddlers love having their very own Awana club just like their older siblings.
In Puggles, children are welcomed each week with play time, songs, and simple crafts and activities. Leaders present age-appropriate lessons using large colorful teaching cards, finger puppet plays and more. Lessons teach and reinforce four basic biblical precepts:
• God Made Everything
• God Saw That It Was Good
• God is Love
• Give Thanks
Special take home cards that correspond to each week's lesson help parents nurture their child's faith at home. Participating in Puggles will give your child a head start on the path to loving and following God for life.
