Awana

GROWING TOGETHER

Awana reaches kids age 3 to 18 through energetic game activities, Bible-based teaching experiences and small group time with friends.

It challenges children to grow in their faith by memorizing scripture and understanding how God’s Word applies to their lives. Kids in Awana not only discover God’s love and their identity in Christ, but are also encouraged to become disciple makers who reach out to their friends.

Each week almost 200 kids meet to play crazy and fun games, laugh together, and learn the Bible in a safe and friendly environment. We see clubbers come to Christ each year! God is using Awana at Blue Ridge Bible Church to reach our community.

What to Expect

Sunday Evenings

AWANA currently meets on Sunday nights, from 4-5:30 p.m. Each meeting consists of a lesson and Bible study for each age level, a combined devotional time with all age groups, and then competitive games.

Game Time

Ask any Awana clubber, game time is FUN! Each club participates in friendly competition as a team around the game circle. Cheering and encouraging one another is an integral part of games. It gets LOUD during game time with cheering, laughter and lots of energy being released! Game time keeps clubbers coming back to Awana for more.

Council Time

A unique aspect of Blue Ridge’s Awana program is our council time. We get all clubbers ages 5 to 14 together to hear a gospel message aimed at helping them know God better and love Him more. Council time messages often go hand in hand with the theme night focus.

Ages & Clubs

  • Cubbies
    (Preschool)

  • For the energetic 3 and 4 year olds, Cubbies is fun and exciting! Cubbies comes alongside the parents in helping clubbers memorize scripture. Cubbies learn basic truths about the Christian faith. They also have tons of fun playing games, hearing Bible stories, and doing crafts!

  • Sparks
    (K to 2nd Grade)

  • 5, 6, and 7 year olds enjoy the engaging Sparks curriculum, activities and group interactions to teach kids the Bible. In three years, a child will learn and review over 65 verses, many of which cover salvation and key Christian doctrine. These are key training years for our clubbers. After being immersed in solid foundational teaching at the preschool level, boys and girls frequently come to an understanding of their need to trust Christ as their personal Savior while in Sparks. We want to come alongside boys and girls and help them grow deeper in their knowledge of our Lord.

  • T&T
    (3rd to 6th Grade)

  • The 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. Our goal is that many of today’s young people will become tomorrow’s church leaders. T&T is the program that trains the leaders of tomorrow – today. Through weekly club meetings, we expose children to the gospel message, Scripture memory, Bible study, awards, team-oriented games and gut-busting fun! The Bible centered curriculum helps kids build a firm foundation for their faith, hide God’s Word in their heart and apply the truths of Scripture to their daily lives.

    Evangelism and discipleship is the bread and butter of T&T. By the time a child has completed T&T, he/she will have learned and reviewed approximately 310 verses, studied dozens of passages from the Old and New Testament, regularly heard and read the gospel message, discovered the Bible’s response to questions like “How does God want me to live my life?” and memorized verses to back up these answers, plus completed missions projects that help him/her see the world through God’s eyes.

  • Trek
    (7th to 8th Grade)

  • Aimed at seventh and eighth graders, Trek provides solid Biblical teaching with relevant, contemporary applications. The new, exciting curriculum is designed to take the clubber from Genesis to Revelation in their first year. The second year study deals with trials, temptations and tough times of the Christian life. No one escapes these difficult times. How do students respond when life comes crashing down around them? Trek helps the middle school student prepare for what lies ahead.

  • Leaders-in-Training
    (Ages 14-18)

  • For clubbers age 14 to 18, we have an LIT program that trains tomorrow’s leaders today. The female LIT’s work closely with our Cubbies program. The male LIT’s work under the direction of a male director in a discipleship format. Each week, the LIT’s get practical training working as a leader and modeling their Christian walk to younger clubbers. In addition, the LIT’s are required to complete the Journey curriculum which helps keep the LIT’s grounded in prayer, Bible memorization and scripture reading. This is an excellent program for the older teens who feel called to lead the next generation in their spiritual training. Attendance at a Leader’s Training meeting at the beginning of each year is required

  • Journey
    (9th to 12th Grade)

  • Specifically establishes high school students as lifelong disciples through a deep study of God’s Word, mobilizing them to live with godly perspective and evident faith.
