What is Awana?

The name “Awana” stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” which comes from the Awana key verse:  “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  2 Timothy 2:15

Awana Clubs is a non-denominational organization that provides curriculum and organized activities for children to churches throughout the world.  Over 3,500,000 children attend weekly Awana meetings where they play games on an “Awana circle”, study and memorize God’s word, and worship together in an organized group time.

Cubbies (Pre-school ages 3 & 4)

Cubbies is the Awana Club for preschoolers during the two years prior to regular kindergarten, usually three & four-year-olds.  Cubbies is unique because it supports and maintains parents as the primary source of spiritual nurturing by directly involving them in the teaching and learning process.  Cubbies uses the fundamental Awana elements of games and activities, Bible memorization, handbooks, and awards.

Sparks (Kindergarten through 2nd grade)

Sparks is the Awana Club for kindergarteners, first-graders, and second-graders.  Each club meeting has 3 parts.  In Game Time, Sparkies enjoy entertaining games played on the Awana game circle.  During Green Meadow time, Sparkies gather for an age-appropriate Bible lesson.  During Sparkle Time, clubbers recite Bible verses from memory, complete handbook sections, and earn awards.  Sparky, the friendly firefly, appears throughout the Bible-based materials to encourage clubbers to complete their handbook achievements.

Truth & Training (T & T) (Grades 3 to 6)

T & T is the Awana Club for boys and girls in the third through sixth grade.  Similar to the structure of the Sparks program, each T & T meeting has 3 parts. During Game Time, clubbers compete in a variety of fun and exciting games on the Awana game circle.  In Handbook Time, clubbers progress though handbook sections that answer fundamental questions about the Christian faith, and back up those answers with selected scripture for memorization.  Finally, Council Time allows clubbers the chance to gather together, worship, learn a practical lesson from God’s word, and receive the awards they’ve earned.

24/7 Trek (7th through 8th Grade)

Trek helps teens to hear God’s Word among the chorus of voices. 24/7 Trek gives middle-schoolers biblical truth with an emphasis on application in daily life.  The program is designed to win the lost, build the believer, and equip the committed for fruitful ministry.

24/7 Journey (High School)

The 24/7 Journey program focuses both on reaching the unreached and on high-schoolers who wish to develop a deeper understanding of God’s Word.  The program is designed to reach teens where they are and disciple them to a higher level.
