What is Awana?
Club meetings consist of Handbook Time (where clubbers recite the verses they learned for the week), Large Group Time (where they learn more truths about our wonderful Savior), and Game Time (where we play specially designed Awana games). We add in extra fun by belonging to a team where we compete each week to become the “Team of the Week”. For the clubbers who like to compete, they can join us as we test our knowledge at Bible Quiz events and our agility in Awana Games against other churches.
Awana Clubs we offer at Northshore (see details below):
- Cubbies: Preschool (2 yrs prior to Kindergarten)
- Sparks: Kindergarten-2nd Grade
- T&T: 3rd-5th Grade
- Trek: 6th-8th Grade (Middle School)
- Journey: 9th-12th Grade (High School)
Cubbies: Preschool (Cubbies enter two years before they start Kindergarten)
Preschoolers can hardly wait for their next Cubbies club meeting. Whether it's the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their Cubbies friends, they simply love it. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior.
Sparks: Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
Sparks club 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. They love their red vests, patches, and jewels they earn, the exciting games and spending time with leaders and friends. This three year ministry will take your child on a journey through the entire Bible! Each week through their handbook activities they will explore biographies of people of the Bible and memorize Bible verses.
Truth & Training (T&T): 3rd - 5th Grade
T&T engages clubbers by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ's grace. Handbooks and large-group lessons minister to your children as the lessons work to deepen a child's knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life. The ultimate message to kids of every age group is that nothing is more important than their relationship with Christ and following His way of living in the scriptures.
Trek: 6th - 8th Grade (Middle School)
Trek challenges students to wrestle with the three most important questions they’re asking in middle school:
- Who am I?
- Why am I here?
- Who’s with me?
By allowing students to dive deep into the scriptures and answer these questions for themselves we allow them to own their faith and discover what they actually believe. Each week the students will study a part of scripture through the guidance of their handbooks and at club discuss their findings. Upon completion of this three year ministry students will have read through the New Testament. We also have a lot of fun in Trek! Fun outings and extra events happen throughout the year.
Journey: 9th - 12th Grade (High School)
Journey establishes high school students as lifelong disciples through a deep study of God's Word and mobilizing them to live with godly perspective and evident faith. Journey is a place where students work side by side with their leaders and friends to deepen their faith and help prepare themselves for the life and ministry the Lord has in store for them. Upon completion of this ministry they will have read through the entire Old Testament Bible and memorized an amazing amount of scripture.
