Awana Children’s Ministry @ St. Lucas
Our Awana program is a local extension of an international children’s ministry committed to building lasting faith foundations for children in preschool through Grade 6.
We believe young children can and should receive spiritual training. Awana gives preschooler that training in a fun and engaging atmosphere!
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.
Sparks (K–Grade 2)
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 kids 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.
T&T (Grades 3-6)
The name Truth & Training reflects the passion of Awana to teach third- through sixth-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.
Each year, various special events for all ages provide motivation for learning and an opportunity to experience God’s love while enjoying time with other Awana clubbers and their families. Kids love these events – it’s a big reason why they invite their friends to Awana!
We celebrate Jesus’ birth and bring “gifts” for Him that are donated those in need
McDonald’s Limo Lunch
Sparks can earn a ride in a limousine to McDonald’s for lunch by memorizing scripture and passing sections in their handbooks
Bowling Blast Contest
T&T kids can earn a bowling & pizza party by memorizing scripture and passing sections in their handbooks
Break the Record Night
We try to achieve the highest attendance of the year
Kids enjoy freshly-popped popcorn while our leaders hit the stage to perform short plays, skits, and comedy routines (and usually embarrass themselves!)
Awana Grand Prix
Grand prix car races for T&T (just like Pinewood Derby for scouts) and rain gutter regatta races for Sparks
“Under the Stars” Sledding Party
Just like it sounds — we set up big lights on the hill on the church property and enjoy an evening of hot chocolate, a warm fire, and fast sledding!
Our year-end family Jamboree includes dinner, awards for kids, and a special video wrap-up of the year — a great way to celebrate a year packed with fun, learning, and spiritual growth!
