Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed
What is Awana?
Simply put, Awana is a youth ministry for children ages 2 to 18. Its name is an acronym derived from Scripture (2 Timothy 2:15, which says, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”).
More specifically, Awana is a worldwide, nonprofit, non-denominational ministry focused on providing Bible-based evangelism and discipleship programs for children. Awana gives children the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus, no matter their background. Click here for more information about the Awana Organization.
At Pike GBC, our Awana program is divided into 4 main clubs for children ages 18 months through the six grade. We also have curriculum for junior- and high school-age children as a self-study program. See the list below for descriptions of each individual club.
Awana runs with the school year and all Clubs meet weekly, every Wednesday from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at our church. Click here for our calendar.
Each week, children sing songs, recite verses, play games and work through lessons and activities in their Awana handbooks. Younger children have story time and snacks each week. Clubbers also receive uniforms they wear to club. Uniforms also serve as a place to display awards received for completing handbook sections (Cubbies, Sparks and T&T).
Our Clubs include:
Puggles—the club for toddlers (ages 18 months to 3 years)
Cubbies—the club for preschoolers (ages 3 & 4)
Sparks—the club for grades K through 2
Truth & Training (T&T) – the club for 3rd-6th graders
Trek & Journey—grades 7-12 (Self-Study Handbook Time)
