What is Awana?

Awana is all about fun with a purpose ~ to win and grow kids for Christ!  While kids are having a blast, they’re learning and growing, too.
  • Games & special activities train their bodies.
  • Bible memorization and discovering spiritual truth expands their minds.
  • Encountering life lessons feeds their souls.

Why Awana?

A national survey revealed that that participating in Awana helps produce lasting biblical faith and that 92.7 percent of adults who were involved in Awana continue to regularly attend church the rest of their lives.

Who Goes to Awana?

Cubbies (preschool):

celebrates preschoolers’ spiritual potential by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word. Cubbies is built on two premises:

Young children can and should receive spiritual training.
Home is the primary place for spiritual training.

Our preschool program meets these needs through lots of fun! Games, puppets, crafts, awards, snacks and other activities make Cubbies a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.

Sparks (K-2):

teaches children about the people and events of the Bible. This builds a foundation of wisdom for knowing Jesus. Sparks meetings combine learning with fun to create an atmosphere of irresistible excitement. Club meetings are divided into three segments:

Bible teaching, singing, announcements and awards
Small group interaction and completion of Bible-based lessons
Games that appeal to kids of all skill levels

Truth & Training (third to fifth grade):

answers kids’ key questions about God and the Bible, guiding them to grow in His grace. Like Sparks for K-2 kids, T&T weekly meetings are divided into three segments. Children have gut-busting, team-oriented fun in Game Time; sing, hear a Bible message and receive awards in Large Group Time and learn and recite Bible truths in Handbook Time. Exciting theme nights, the Awana Store and other exciting activities spice up meetings throughout the year.

Where does Awana Meet?

Awana meets at Valley Bible Church in Shafter at 350 Pine St.
