  • About each Awana Club

     

    PUGGLES:
    2 -3 yrs old (by October 1st) 

    The Puggles Club is an enriching program for 2 year olds and younger 3 years old where simple Biblical concepts are presented to the tiny tots through teaching cards, activities, music, and games. 

    CUBBIES:   
    Cubbies Group 1: 3-4 years old (by October 1st)
    Cubbies Group 2: 4-5 years old (by October 1st)

    Cubbies is fun with a purpose - to reach and train kids for Jesus Christ. Games, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities transform our preschool program into a lively weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand. The Cubbies curriculum features two handbooks written in a fun, storybook style that appeals to preschoolers. Each section combines basic Scripture memory with parent-child activities to help a child grasp a simple biblical truth. 

    SPARKS:
    Kindergarten-2nd graders
    parks club meetings combine learning with fun to create an atmosphere of irresistible excitement. The curriculum takes kids a step deeper into God's Word while giving clubbers regular opportunities to hear the Gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ.

    TRUTH AND TRAINING:
    3rd-6th graders
    he name Truth & Training reflects the passion of Awana to teach third through sixth grade boys and girls the truth of God's Word and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives. 

    T&T is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow - today. Each of the four handbooks in our Truth & Training clubs investigates four questions. Eight answers from the Bible are provided for each question. Children will learn all eight answers to each of the questions and verses to back up these answers. The handbooks also include Bible studies and activities that allow children to delve into the subject matter and build a foundation of biblical wisdom through memory verse drills and review of key doctrine and the Bible.

    Yes. Our Annual Awana Grand Prix Date is October 26, 2016. Cars can also be purchased at the Check-In tables leading up to the Grand Prix. The cost per car this year is $10 and includes registration for your child and family to participate in the event as well as dinner and dessert.

    Is there any preparation required at home before coming to Club each week?
    Although not required, preparation at home is highly recommended. The Clubbers have a goal of completing one book per year. The level of difficulty with this task increases as the Clubbers get older and build on previous memorization. The goal is obtainable but requires time during the Awana night and may help to have at home preparation. Each child will progress with encouragement from their Awana leaders and home support. 

    What if my child can’t be there every week? 
    That is okay. We will miss them. We ask that they continue working through their handbooks to maintain a pace where they can finish their book by the end of the year. 
    Your child will progress further through the material and memory verses the more often he/she can attend. 

    Do I have to be a volunteer for my child to participate in Awana?
    Volunteering in the program is required through our Parent Co-operative Opportunity.
    It is our privilege to be able to grow, deepen and invest in your child’s spiritual life at Awana. This year in Awana we would like to begin a Parent Co-operative Opportunity.  The Parent Co-operative is an invested opportunity for you to participate in your child's spiritual and social development!  We desire a partnership with you as parents to be involved in the opportunities to effectively reinforce spiritual principles within your home.

    This opportunity provides you a chance to meet other parents, observe your child in a their environment and benefits our classrooms to maintain appropriate adult/child ratios, thus allowing us to pour into these children more deeply. 

    You will be asked through your child's registration to look at your calendar and determine how often you might be able to serve in our Awana ministry.  An Awana leader will contact you to schedule your particular request.  

    Volunteer Options are: Every Wednesday, Twice Monthly, Once a Month, 5 times an Awana Year, 1 time an Awana Year

    There are many different places to volunteer. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please see one of the Awana Team leaders or you can email hdavenport@harvestdenver.org
