Baxter and Aitkin Campus Final Awards Program and AWANA Store:
Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 4:00pm for both early and late sessions.
Awana is a Bible-memorization ministry during the school year. Its goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to serve him. This weekly program is designed to give boys and girls the opportunity to build lasting friendships, establish positive role models, and provide practical life lessons in a safe and fun environment.
Awana Clubs consist of three parts:
- Game Time gives children the chance to play fun games while learning teamwork, leadership, and communication skills.
- Handbook Time provides children with the opportunity to develop relationships in a small group while reinforcing the Scripture memory work that they have done at home.
- Large Group Time is a session designed to offer children practical lessons in Christian living.
Toddlers 2-3 year olds
(2 years old by September 1st)
Awana Puggles is an enriching program for your pre-Cubbies kids that presents basic biblical concepts:
- We are a unique creation of God.
- God loves us very much.
Awana Puggles teaches toddlers simple lessons through teaching cards, activities, music and more. Awana Puggles leaders have a leader’s guidebook to help them plan and direct club time and communicate the lesson.
Then parents—an Awana Puggle’s first and best teacher—can step in to reinforce the lessons with take-home cards that include ideas to point out God’s work each day. And little details like Awana Puggles T-shirts, puzzles and coloring books make every precious child feel like part of the group.
Preschoolers 3-5 year olds
(3 by September 1st)
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, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.
Kindergarten – 2nd Grade
Immersing Kids in God’s Word
The Sparks program is firmly grounded in Scripture. The three handbooks feature:
- Basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible
- A clear and consistent presentation of the gospel message
- An increased emphasis on Scripture memory over our preschool materials. In three years, a child will learn and review over 65 verses, many of which cover salvation and key Christian doctrine, establishing a foundation of biblical wisdom.
3rd – 5th Grades
Truth & Training (T&T) is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow — today.
T&T is equipped with a variety of dynamic tools to get kids excited about God’s Word:
- Two handbooks of increasing difficulty which teach children that life’s ultimate adventure is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
- A cast of fun characters that boys and girls learn from and follow on interesting journeys in the handbooks
- Weekly meetings that expose children to the gospel message, Scripture memory, Bible study, awards, team-oriented games and gut-busting fun
- A Bible-centered curriculum that helps kids build a firm foundation for their faith, hide God’s Word in their heart and apply the truths of Scripture to their daily lives
Evangelism and discipleship go hand in hand in our third- through fifth-grade program. By the time a child has completed T&T, they will have:
- Learned and reviewed approximately 190 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 “Why did God give us the Bible?” and memorized verses to back up these answers
