Awana

 

It is a pleasure and a privilege to have your child attend the New Paris Church of the Brethren Awana program.  We look forward to getting to know you and your child.  We strive to provide a fun learning environment that creates excitement and a desire for children to discover more about Christ.

Awana stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.”  It is based on the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15, which says:

“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.”

Children learn about God’s Word and memorize Scripture to build a solid foundation in their faith.  They also enjoy singing, playing games, participating in theme nights, and receiving awards for their accomplishments.

Awana nights are on Wednesday evenings, September through March.  We begin with supper at 5:30 PM and end the evening at 7:30 PM.

We offer three groups—Cubbies®, Sparks®, and T&T®.

 

Cubbies

Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers by helping them develop respect for God, His Son, and His Word.

Preschoolers love Cubbies! Whether it’s the fun puppets, the exciting games, or all their friends, they simply can hardly wait for their next Cubbies meeting. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn so much about God! Lessons focus on the greatness of God’s love, His Word, and His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.

The child must be potty-trained in order to participate.

Sparks

For Kindergarten through 2nd Grade

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.

To many children in kindergarten to second grade, Sparks is the highlight of the week! They love their red vests, the exciting games, and spending time with leaders and friends.

Sparks is divided into three years, each with a unique rank: HangGlider®, WingRunner®, and SkyStormer™. Each year, kids in Sparks:

• Explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture
• Memorize Bible verses
• Complete handbook activities

T&T

For 3rd through 6th Grade

The T&T (Truth & Training) curriculum teaches kids the truth of God’s Word and trains them to follow Him and practice His grace. In this 4-year curriculum series, kids will explore the fundamental doctrines of Christianity including:

• The character and nature of God
• The structure and sequence of the Bible
• The redemption narrative
• Key practices for followers of Jesus

By encouraging kids to engage in highly biblical and highly relational discipleship, T&T helps students to grow and develop as lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.

Fees and Supplies

Fees

We have chosen to assist parents with the cost of participating in Awana by paying for most of the supplies.  Your portion of the registration fee helps offset the cost of your child’s handbook, vest or shirt, bag, and awards.  The fees are as follows:

  • $10 for each returning clubber who has the appropriate supplies (shirt, handbook, bag) for his or her club
  • $25 for returning clubbers moving up to a new club (includes (shirt, handbook, bag)
  • $25 for new clubbers (includes (shirt, handbook, bag)

Uniform

Each child will need a shirt or vest to display his/her awards and to be recognized as a club by his/her dress.

When you order a shirt or vest, you will want it big enough to last the whole time in that club.  For example, if your child is starting Sparks, you will want to order a vest that will last for 3 years so you will only need to buy it once.

Please note: the uniforms run small.

Uniform Sizes

Cubbies: Uniform Vest (L, XL. XXL)

Sparks: Uniform Vest (M-8, L -10, XL (12), XXL -14)

T&T: T-shirt (Youth Size 12, 14, Adult Sizes S, M, L)

You may pay for the supplies when you bring your child to Awana.  If you have any questions about paying for the supplies,  you may contact Jenni Godfrey, Awana Ministry Director, at npcob@bnin.net.
