"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth."


Awana Clubs International, which derives it's name from 2 Timothy 2:15 was formed over 60 years ago in Chicago, Illinois. It is an international, Bible-centered youth ministry providing local churches with weekly clubs and programs for two-year-olds through high schoolers. The goal of the Awana ministry is to reach boys and girls, and their families, with the life changing message of Jesus Christ and equip them to serve Him.

Our club meets each Sunday evening from 5:00 to 7:00pm. In our club we assign the children to teams for the year. By using the team system, we encourage the children to work together, helping one another, thus reflecting the club motto, "My Friend For Christ". Throughout the year we have various competitions for the teams, each one based upon scripture memorization.

Parent participation: If you are enrolling your child in Puggles, Cubbies or Sparks, it is required that one parent be a volunteer at least every other week in your child's class or department. Our Awana Club has a "parent-participation" approach because we believe that you play the greatest role in influencing your children. It is our desire to reach your children with the gospel of Christ in a safe and secure environment and this can only happen with your participation. Thank you for partnering with us!
