This fun, interactive Bible study is one of the country’s most popular approaches to teaching kids the foundations of the Christian faith. Every evening includes games, devotions, and Bible memory. Meets during the school year.

Each week children participate in specially made Awana clubs that help build trust in God and Christ and teach them about Christian values, faith, and service. Each week a different theme will be given to help impact children in the Word.
