AWANA Clubs meet on Wednesdays during school year from 6:30-8:00 PM. During that time, the kids from 3 years through 6th grade enjoy a high-energy game time, work through a Scripture memory handbook, and learn a Bible message. The AWANA program provides structure and a clear path to follow as children grow in the Lord. Our goal at ICBC is to find a way to help each child succeed. Children memorize scripture at their own pace that is challenging for them. They also enjoy making new friends and having fun at the same time!
AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and comes from the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15: “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.”
We have three AWANA clubs at ICBC:
CUBBIES - 3–4 year old Preschoolers have lots of fun as they are introduced to God’s word. This club lays the foundation for making scripture a part of their lives through parent-child activities.
SPARKS - K–2nd graders use friendship building along with the gospel message to learn about Jesus through games and introduces small peer-group interaction.
T & T (Truth & Training) - 3rd–6th graders use discipleship and evangelism to lead them into a deeper relationship with God along with teaching them to reach out to others through mission projects.
NOTE: While there is a cost for participating in AWANA to cover the cost of awards, prizes and uniforms, as with any children’s ministry program, expense should not limit participation. We have scholarships available (see an adult leader for more details).
