The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of the phrase: “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed,” from the verse 2 Timothy 2:15, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

AWANA is a Bible-centered weekly program for girls and boys from ages 3 years old to 6th grade. Our AWANA program meets every Wednesday evening from 6:30 – 8:15 pm. Our program begins in September and runs through May. AWANA does not meet during the holiday weeks such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, or Easter. For a list of all meeting nights, themes and events, please see the AWANA Calendar.

 

AWANA introduces children to Jesus Christ and builds an enduring biblical foundation for their faith. Each Wednesday the children learn new bible verses, play games, and hear a story from the Bible. We have theme nights, contests, and puppet shows. The children earn awards and points that can be spent in our AWANA store. We have canned food drives for the community and help fund missions work as well.

 

Registration Costs: There is a participation fee child for all groups to help cover the cost of handbooks, awards, and classroom supplies. Each child will also need to purchase a vest or shirt depending on their age. Please let us know if there is a financial need as we have special funds to help these areas. We want children of all ages to be able to attend AWANA. Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Due to recent high enrollment, some departments will maintain a waiting list once our classes are full. Students enrolled in AWANA, who have 3 unexcused consecutive absences may lose their spot in the class.

 

Our AWANA leaders are committed believers who walk with the Lord, and desires spiritual growth. Our leaders come from a variety of local churches. They are recommended by their church leadership and have cleared our required background check process. Leadership opportunities and training are available. For more information, please contact us at awana@cvfirst.org.

Cubbies (3-5 Year Olds)

This preschool program is centered on the word of God and includes a cute character named Cubbie the Bear. AWANA has updated the Cubbie program. Returning Cubbies can use the same vest but the books and the awards will be different. Cubbies has some new friends and has moved to a place called Apple Acres. The Apple Seed and the Honey Comb Handbooks are geared to encourage parental support and teach Bible truths along with popular preschool concepts of color, shapes, and letters.

*Little ones must be 3 years old by September 1st and must be toilet-trained to join Cubbies. *Our Cubbies department is limited to 34 students due to staff and facility constraints. Please be aware of this should you be placed on the waiting list during registration.

Sparks include a fun firefly character named Sparky. The children earn patches and awards as they progress through the program. Children work through a different handbook each year. The handbooks help the children learn how to memorize Bible verses and it also includes other Bible-centered activities. The handbooks start with some of the verses that the children learned from the year before, then increases in difficulty as they progress.
