something for every age

Awana offers a curriculum that reaches kids and their families with the gospel. This proven curriculum develops leaders and disciples kids to walk with Christ for life. Lessons are designed to meet kids where they are, teach them about the Gospel in a way they will understand, and encourage them to memorize Scripture.

Puggles

2 years old by September 1

Puggles® is a program to introduce early preschoolers to what they need to know most about God and His love! The program communicates the four Big Truths from the Bible that form a strong first impression of God, His love for us, and our response to His love.

TRUTH & TRAINING

3rd, 4th, and 5th grades

T&T® explores the concept of grace by focusing on the character and nature of God and the identity of Christ, as well as the structure and format of the Bible. Upper elementary students will connect with God through His Word. 

CUBBIES

3 & 4 years old by September 1

Cubbies® nurtures the budding faith of preschoolers and celebrates their desire to explore all that God has created. Your child will learn through exciting games, storytelling, puppet shows, and biblical teaching as well as take-home activities and tools.

SPARKS

Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades

Sparks® ignites a child’s curiosity about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ. Your child will learn through exciting games, engaging activities, biblical teaching and media resources made specifically for them.
Four segments provide start to finish excitement in every club meeting:

Opening Time: Kids meet in the gym at the beginning of each Awana night to learn and sing songs about God and His grace.  It’s a time to focus why we have Awana, “to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.”

Handbook Time: Kids work one-on-one in small groups with a trained leader to recite memorized verses. Leaders talk with children to ensure they understand key Bible verses that teach them how to know and follow God. Awards are given in recognition to children who have completed sections in their handbooks.

Large Group Time: Each club comes together to hear an age-appropriate Bible lesson to learn about character traits that honor God.

Game Time: Children learn teamwork and sportsmanship in team competition in the Awana Games Circle.
Puggle (2 years old) registration dues are $15, and they do not pay weekly dues. Cubbies and Sparks (ages 3 through 2nd grade) registration dues are $25 for the entire year. T&T (Truth & Training, 3rd-5th grade) is $35 for the year. Weekly dues are $0.50. Weekly dues and Registration dues provide uniform, handbook materials, and awards for the Awana Program.

AWANA GRAND PRIX

Be ready for the annual Grand Prix!

CHILD INVOLVEMENT EXPECTATIONS

Puggles to Sparks: a parent/mentor may rough cut the car after the child designs it on paper and then transfers it to a block of wood. The parent/mentor may help with rough sanding, but the final sanding must be done by the child. The parent/mentor may put on all wheels according to specifications.
Truth & Training: a parent/mentor may only rough cut the block of wood. The child must do all filing, sanding, and painting. The parent/mentor may put on all wheels according to specifications.

grand prix format

  1. Each car will race once in each lane.
  2. Winners for speed are determined by the sum of the two fastest runs.
  3. Awards will be given for design as well as speed.
  4. Once a car passes inspection and is entered into the race, only race committee members can touch it.
  5. If the car loses a wheel, or is otherwise damaged, the racer shall have 5 minutes to make a repair.
  6. Each car must pass an inspection weigh-in before it will be allowed to compete.
  7. If a car leaves its lane, at his sole direction, the Grand Prix chairman may inspect the track and, if a track fault is found to probably cause the initial violation, the track chairman may order the race to be rerun after the track is repaired.

INSPECTION POINTS

Every entry must have its own child builder (clubber) present and must have been built this year.
All entries must be in compliance to the above and the following specifications:
  • Maximum: weight - 5 oz, length - 7in, width - 2.75in, height - 3in
  • The entry must be built so that no part of it protrudes past the starting peg when placed on the track. Reference only: A minimum of 1&3/4 by 3/8 inch clearance is needed for the lane strip.
  • The official race scale that is used at car check-in shall be considered final. 
  • The Awana pine wood block must be used. Axle locations cannot be moved.
  • All entries must use the current Awana wheels and axles. Modification of the wheels is permitted, however the AWANA GRAND PRIX name must be visible on the sidewall of the wheels. The wheels must contact only the body of the entry and the bare axle, ie no bearings or bushings. No independently powered movable/motorized devices or parts are permitted on or inside the vehicle which enhances the cars speed. Starting devices are prohibited. All cars must be gravity driven. Final preparation and lubrication (liquid lubrication only) of the entry must be completed before the entry is submitted for inspection.
  • No eBay cars or pre-built cars may be entered (this does not include pre-cut blocks available through Awana or purchased at a store).
  • WEIGHTING MATERIALS: Parents/mentors are responsible to find materials to add weight to the cars if that is necessary. Weight can be added anywhere as long as the overall car is in compliance with the above. The parent/mentor present with the child at the workshop is responsible to note that lead has been added to the car and care should be taken that the car is not used as a toy. There are non-lead weights available at certain craft or hobby stores.
