AWANA meets each Wednesday evening during the school year, and follows the Buncombe County School calendar. If a school holiday falls on a Wednesday, we will not have AWANA that evening. Also, if school is cancelled due to inclement weather, AWANA will be cancelled, as well.
AWANA Snack is provided for the children each Wednesday at 5:30 pm in the church Fellowship Hall.
At 6:00 pm, all clubbers, excluding Puggles and Cubbies participate in an opening assembly in the gym, led by our commander, Jerry Green. Afterwards, clubbers are dismissed to their respective classes.
Parents can pick up their children promptly at 8:00 pm
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
Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3- to 5-year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
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.
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.
To many children in kindergarten to second grade, Sparks is the highlight of the week! They love their red vests, 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
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.
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.
