The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” as taken from 2-Timothy 2:15.
Please join us for AWANA ministries from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights (September - May). AWANA is an international, Bible-centered children's and youth ministry which blends Bible teaching, Scripture memorization and tons of fun!
Bethel offers AWANA programs for the following age groups:
Puggles is an enriching program for children ages 2 and 3 (usually older 2- and younger 3-year-olds) that presents basic biblical concepts. Puggles teaches toddlers simple lessons through teaching cards, activities, music and more. (The Puggles club is "restricted" to children of parents active in club night/worship service.)
Preschoolers starting at 3 years old (The Cubbies club is "restricted" to children of parents active in club night/worship service.) Lots of fun and an introduction to God's word for preschoolers, Cubbies encourages these little ones to begin to make scripture a part of their lives through parent-child activities.
Friendship building and the gospel message for K-2nd graders, Sparks teaches children about Jesus through games and introduces small peer-group interaction.
Truth & Training Clubs
Evangelism and discipleship for 3rd-6th graders, T&T leads children into a deeper relationship with God and teaches them to reach out to others through mission projects.
Answering questions in a creative way for middle schoolers, Trek is a newly designed program to teach the gospel in a way that is relevant to today's tweens.
AWANA Leaders-In-Training are high schoolers who work alongside trained leaders in ministering to 3 - 5 children. They participate in game time as well as in handbook time with the young clubbers. LIT's use the Journey 24/7 curriculum which gives teenagers an in-depth course in God's word and teaches them to live it daily.
