What happens at Awana?
Each of our Awana clubs has its own unique flow tailored to the needs of the age group participating. Awana begins at 6:30 pm and ends at 8pm on Wednesday nights during the school year. Club features segments for games or other fun activities, small-group Bible learning, large-group Bible teaching, worship, announcements and awards. There are also special events through the Awana Club year like the Awana Grand Prix, Awana Games, and Destination: Unknown.
Children are divided into age appropriate clubs. These include:
Puggles for toddlers age 2-3 introduces them to basic biblical concepts on Wednesdays and equips parents to teach these concepts at home in a fun and safe environment.
Cubbies for kids age 3 (potty trained) - 5 (and not in Kindergarten) celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers by helping them develop respect for God, His Son, and His Word.
Sparks for kids in Kindergarten through 2nd grade 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.
T & T for kids in grades 3 through 5/6 engages these students in answering their questions about God and the Bible to guide them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ's grace.

Who leads Awana Clubs?
Members of First Alliance Church have the opportunity to serve as part of the Awana Clubs Ministry Team. Trained volunteers who have completed background checks oversee the entire ministry as well as spiritually interacting with each child. Our goal is not only a spiritually impactful ministry, but one that is safe and secure as well.
So that children develop meaningful relationships with their leaders, we make sure there are two leaders for every 4-6 children. Younger-age clubs have a smaller ratio per leader.
We also encourage high-school students to get involved as student leaders. Working alongside adult Awana leaders, student leaders not only work with younger-age clubbers' but also learn how to serve in the process. Clubbers see student leaders setting the example of what it means to love, know, and serve Jesus at any age.
There are many ways for people to serve in Awana. These include working directly with kids, teaching, leadership, support roles, and prayer. It takes many working together for Awana to work well. If you'd like to learn more about being part of this team, contact us.
Awana Store Donations
The ability of Awana clubbers to learn Scripture each and every week is amazing! Each semester we want to encourage them by rewarding their hard work through the Awana Store. We collect new and gently used items such as: art/school supplies, toys, kids' jewelry & purses, candy, etc. For the December store, we also like to collect items the Clubbers can purchase as gifts for family members to give at Christmas. These donations can include: candles (new), figurines, Christmas decor, coffee mugs, etc. Donations can be dropped off at the church office anytime or at the Awana office on Wednesday nights. Thank you for your support as we celebrate the accomplishments of clubbers!
