The AWANA program at Grace Life Bible includes ages 2 through high school. Our program, which includes Puggles, Cubbies, Sparks, T & T, Trek, and Journey, is held Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. during the school year.
What is AWANA?
AWANA, one of the largest youth discipleship ministries in the world, is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. AWANA's goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and to train them to serve Him.
At Grace Life Bible, our AWANA program is held on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. during the school year.
All ages of students are welcome! Two and three-year-olds can attend Puggles, preschoolers attend Cubbies, and Sparks and T & T clubs are for elementary aged students. Trek and Journey are for junior high and high school students. Many of our junior high and high school students also act as leaders of the younger students, helping with verse recitation and games.
During an AWANA club, students learn and recite Bible verses from their handbooks, sing, hear a Bible lesson, and play fun games. We have prizes and awards for Bible memory.
AWANA is a time-tested and effective youth ministry. Recent research shows that of students who complete the AWANA program, over 90 per cent continue to attend church and serve in church ministries into their adult lives.
