AWANA Online

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

For over six decades, the Lord has used the ministry of Awana to reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world. The unchanging truth of the gospel drives the same vision we’ve held all these years to reach children in every corner of the globe as we walk boldly into the future and continue to be used by God to help change the world.

Village Church has been honored to offer AWANA for over 40 years and excited to offer AWANA again this year. While operating virtually, our Village clubs will look and feel much different than in years past, but our mission remains the same; share the gospel, disciple children, and grow in relationship.

We encourage all families and students to participate in AWANA Online. Our prayer is the flexibility of online and at-home study will encourage more participation, more spiritual conversations in the home, and more opportunities to see and feel the presence of Jesus in the lives of our children, our parents, and our community.

Village Virtual Clubs

AWANA at Village is operating remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Registration for the 2021-2022 club year will begin August 2021. Please stay tuned for COVID-19 updates as we assess when we will be able to meet in person again!

With AWANA-FLIP+, students purchase a handbook and recite verses, as well as participate in the online activities.

Puggles

2-year olds 

Puggles Teacher: Ruth Jones

We are so excited to get to know your little one! Puggles recognizes the learning ability of 2-year olds by introducing biblical truth at church and equipping parents to teach them at home.

Every first Wednesday of the month are Puggle Packet Days. Ruth Jones, Puggle Director, will determine if this packets will need to be picked up or can be delivered based on the locations of our families.

 

Sparks

Kindergarten through Second Grade

Sparks Director: Michael Penner

Sparks ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ. Sparks Club is self led. Families talk through the lessons and memorize the short verses at home, reciting them to guardians, neighbors, or extended family. 

Sparks are free to move through their handbook as slowly or as quickly as they like. Kindergarten and brand new clubbers begin in the Hang Glider handbook. Clubbers who complete Hang Glider will begin the Wing Runner handbook the next club year. The same goes for the third and final Sparks book, Wing Runner.

Cubbies

3- and 4-year olds as of Sept 1

Cubbies Director: Amy Vanderveen

Cubbies celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers by helping them develop respect for God, His Son, and His Word. All Cubbies work through the same handbook at the same pace. Every Cubbie will need to purchase a new book this year regardless if they finished their book last year. Their weekly Bear Hug sections include memory verses, Bible lessons, and activities. The handbook includes extra credit sections, called Under the Apple Tree.

 

Truth and Training (T&T)

Third through Sixth Grade

T&T Director: Angie Lausche

The Truth & Training curriculum teaches kids the truth of God’s Word, trains them to follow Him and practice His grace. All TnTers work through the same handbook at the same pace. Weekly stories will be based off of that week’s session, but will still be beneficial to clubbers who haven’t purchased a book. Our books are focused around grace: Grace in Action, Evidence of Grace, Agents of Grace, and Discovery of Grace. Each handbook contains 30 Bible studies, memory verses, and plenty of extra credit.

Volunteers

AWANA Volunteers are an integral part of our clubs. We would not be able to serve the community through AWANA Clubs without our amazing team of supporters who rise to the challenge each year. Whether weekly or only at special events, each and every volunteer is valued. We could not reach over 100 clubbers a year without their generous support.

Our needs for AWANA Online clubs are different than normal, but you if feel led to participate in these ways or future opportunities, please contact us!

  • Story Teller – Engages the clubbers in a short story. For Cubbies and T&T, we have lesson plans that help guide the Clubbers into a discussion about their weekly memory verse.
  • Leader/Verse Leader – With all clubs reciting 1-2 verses, we’re in need ears! Listen to clubbers recite from the Bible and help them work toward their awards.
