Awana is an international program that helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. 

Children meet in their age-based groups weekly on Tuesday nights, 6:30-8pm at the Southwinds Campus. Each week includes a Bible story, high-energy game, workbook time, and wacky theme. 

Awana is designed for parents to work through the book with their child during the week, to encourage spiritual growth at home. Take advantage of parent resources at Awana's Parent Stuff.

Just like with everything else we do...your children will be cared for by trained leaders. We welcome parents who would like to volunteer! Please contact Pastor Chris Thielen for more information on how you can be a part of Awana.

Awana Clubs

Cubbies (3 - 5 Years Old)

Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers by helping them develop respect for God, His Son, and His Word.

PARENT ROLE Cubbies encourages parental involvement. Your child's handbooks feature parent-child activities for home. You will lead your child through handbook sections, called Bear Hugs, to prepare for the next club gathering. Each Bear Hug includes optional activities, called "Under the Apple Tree," for reviewing Bible verses and lessons learned earlier. An audio CD included in your child’s handbook has review material that you can listen to together. 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 instill your child with a lifelong biblical worldview.

Sparks (Kindergarten - 2nd Grade)

Sparks® ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ.

PARENT ROLE  Parents play a leading role in their child's spiritual development. Invest in your child's growing faith by reading and discussing the Bible and the handbook sections with your child and by helping him memorize the verses. Use the Parent Ideas section in each handbook to help your child understand the biographies and see how they fit in the Bible. The handbooks, combined with Large Group Time lessons, take your child on a journey through the entire Bible!

T&T (3rd - 6th Grade)

T&T engages third- through sixth-graders by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ's grace.

PARENT ROLE T&T has been built to encourage parents to become involved in their child’s spiritual development in greater ways. The T&T Kid’s Handbook includes 26 simple activities for you to participate in your child’s handbook experience.
