    What is Awana?

    Mission Hills Church - Awana Cubbies


    Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3- to 5-year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.

    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. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.

    Cubbies helps you lead your child to God early so your child will respect and trust Him for life.

    Mission Hills Church - Awana Sparks


    Sparks® 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.

    To many children in kindergarten to second grade, Sparks is the highlight of the week! They love their red vests, the exciting games and spending time with leaders and friends.

    Sparks is divided into three years, each with a unique rank: HangGlider®, WingRunner® and SkyStormer™. Each year, Sparks clubbers:

    • explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture
    • memorize Bible verses
    • complete handbook activities

    The handbooks, combined with Large Group Time lessons from the WHO Do I Need to Know From the Bible series, take your child on a journey through the entire Bible!

    Mission Hills Church - Awana Truth & Training

    Truth & Training

    T&T engages third- through sixth-graders 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 deepen a child’s knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life.

    T&T is different from other Awana programs. It is comprised of two clubs with distinct curriculum, uniforms and awards:

    • T&T Ultimate Adventure™ for third and fourth grades
      T&T Ultimate Challenge™ for fifth and sixth grades
    • Local churches can run the T&T clubs separately or combine them for Large Group Time and Game Time.

    In any case, the two clubs are designed to help kids stay plugged into T&T as they move into the preteen years and continue growing in their relationship with Christ.

    Today, 10- to 12-year-olds, known as tweens, face unique pressures, demands and distractions. These factors can result in a marked increase in discouragement, apathy and disengagement. Christian children are not immune.

    Awana has responded by updating T&T to reinforce commitment, identity, and community for these kids and to give third- and fourth-graders a new club stage to anticipate. These updates also focus the attention of leaders on the unique challenges and needs of this age group.

    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.
