is an acronym for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed," and is a Christian children's education program that blends Bible teaching, scripture memorization, games and more into an organized, cohesive curriculum for your child. AWANA at FBC is available for children through 6th grade, and meets during the school year on Wednesday evenings at 6:25 PM. For further details on this ministry, you may contact our church office, or visit the AWANA website.
The Awana club for preschoolers is built on two premises:
Our preschool program meets these needs through … Fun – and lots of it! Awana 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 Awana club for children in kindergarten through second grade builds on the material taught in our preschool club. The aim of the curriculum is to take youngsters a step deeper into God’s Word while giving unsaved boys and girls regular opportunities to hear the gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ. 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.
The name "Truth & Training" reflects the passion of Awana to teach 3rd-6th 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.
