Awana Clubs at AGCC 2020-2021

 Awana Clubs Web Banner


We are so excited to be re-launching Awana Clubs at AGCC!  The clubs will begin on Friday, March 5, at 6:30pm, through Friday June 25, 2021. 


Awana is an international Bible-centered youth organization.  Awana is an  acronym that stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15). You can find out more about Awana on their website, https://www.awana.org/


At Abounding Grace, our current Awana Ministry is a program for children, Kindergarten through 6th grade.


What Can You Expect at AWANA Clubs?

Awana Clubs meet every Friday from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, at Abounding Grace Christian Church.


We present the gospel every night in a way that each child can understand, no matter what age they are. We understand that salvation is a free gift, that we cannot earn it or buy it, and that Jesus has already paid the price for our sins on the cross. (Romans 3:23)


The key to winning the battle against sin is to memorize scripture and hide it in our hearts. This is what the Awana program is all about. Awana strongly emphasizes memorizing the Bible to help us during the battles in life, so we can have a victorious life in Jesus.


What AWANA Clubs Are Available?

We are offering two clubs here at AGCC: Sparks® for Kindergarten - 2nd grade, and T&T® for 3rd grade - 6th grade.


Sparks logoSparks® 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.
For many kindergartners through second graders, Sparks® is the highlight of the week! They love their red vests, the exciting games, and spending time with leaders and friends. Each year, our Sparks® kids will:

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


Sparks® Club meetings combine learning with fun to encourage kids to learn scripture verses and complete assignments throughout three handbooks.



T T LogoThe T&T® (Truth & Training) curriculum teaches kids the truth of God's Word, training 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.

Enrollment Information

In order to cover the cost of materials through the remainder of the school year, there is a registration fee for attending the club. The fee decreases based on the number of children you enroll.  Due to the shortened length of time the clubs will meet caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, the registration cost has been lowered for the 2020-2021 school year.  Registration cost is $8 for the first child, and increases by $5 for each additional child. 


Additionally, there is the cost of a uniform top ($16) and a handbook ($10) for each student. Points and awards are given for wearing the uniform top and following the handbook. If you'd like to pay by check, please fill out the registration form at the church, (one form per child), and make checks payable to AGCC.




If you prefer to pay by cash or check, please print, complete, and sign:

Printed copies of all the forms will also be available at AGCC on Friday March 5, at 6 pm,  and Sundays in the Church Information Center.


NOTE: even if you register online, you will still need to return a printed and signed copy of the Medical Release and Photo Release forms.
