AWANA is an international, non-denominational, Bible-centered youth organization providing weekly clubs and programs for three-year-olds through high schoolers. The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of the phrase “Approved workmen are not ashamed.” (2 Timothy 2:15) All clubs meet Wednesday nights during the school year:
- 6:45-8:15PM…Cubbies, Sparks, and T&T
- 7:15-8:45PM…Trek and Journey 24/7
The AWANA club for preschoolers is build on two premises: Young children can and should receive spiritual training. Home is the primary place for spiritual training.
In the course of two years, pre-schoolers will learn approximately 55 memory verses and key basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible. They will also be present with the gospel message and their need to trust Christ as Savior.
For boys and girls in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. The aim of the curriculum is to take youngsters 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.
In three years, a child will learn and review 68 memory verses, many of which cover salvation and key Christian doctrine.
Truth & Training (T&T)
For kids in 3rd through 6th grade. Truth & Training is an evangelistic and discipleship program that teachers Scripture memory, basic Bible truths and real-life application within the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual parameters of the 8 through 12 year old child.

The Junior High and Senior High AWANA clubs have been consolidated into AWANA Youth Ministries at Overland Hills Church.
