Events & Opportunities


AWANA is a Bible-based, Christ-centered program for children. The word AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, and comes from the Bible verse II Timothy 2:15: "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." The goal of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and to train them to serve Him. It is a great honor to serve God in this way and to lead children to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. The Trinity Baptist Church AWANA program runs from August through May, and we meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. We create a fun and exciting atmosphere to learn in by dividing our meetings into three segments:

  • Handbook Time: Small group interaction and completion of Bible-based lessons
  • Game Time: Age-appropriate games on the AWANA game circle
  • Council Time: Singing, Bible teaching, the gospel message and award presentations
  • To learn more about AWANA please read below. You can also find helpful information by clicking here.

    Cubbies: Age 3 to Pre-K

    In Cubbies, your child will be involved in activities that encourage real learning. The Cubbie program provides a solid, Bible-based foundation for faith - and it's fun, too! Cubbies participate in prayer, Bible stories, activity sheets, making crafts, singing songs, and playing non-competitive games. The Cubbies earn patches for their uniform by completing Bear Hugs. Each Bear Hug includes Scripture memorization and parent-child activities. The activities in club meetings each week are coordinated with the Bible truths each child is learning at home. Different learning levels offer options that keep learning exciting and fun! Throughout the year, the Cubbies learn the gospel using two letters and two key verses:

  • "A" - Romans 3:23 - "...All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God..."
  • "C" - Romans 5:8 - "While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
  • It is our goal that Cubbies learn the gospel clearly, with hopes that they take it with them through the rest of their lives.

    Sparkies: Grades K-2

    SPARKS is the AWANA club designed for children in Kindergarten through second grade, and builds on the material taught in the preschool club, Cubbies. The aim of the program is to take this age group a step deeper into God's Word, while giving unsaved boys and girls opportunities to hear the gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ. Sparky, the friendly firefly, encourages boys and girls to learn verses and complete handbook assignments. Each handbook is firmly grounded in Scripture and features:

  • Basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible
  • Increased emphasis on the memorization of Scripture that specifically pertains to salvation, key Christian doctrine, and a clear and consistent presentation of the gospel message
  • Truth & Training (T&T): Grades 3-5

    All third- through fifth-graders are AWANA T&T clubbers. Our goal is to teach these older children the truth of God's Word and to train them to serve Him in their daily lives. Each clubber begins with the Start Zone booklet. We want them to know what it means to trust Christ as their Lord and Savior, so the booklet explains salvation to the children on their first night at club. God's Word says, "Even a child is known by his doings" (Proverbs 20:11). We believe that once a clubber has trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior, he or she is able to serve Christ immediately. The handbooks include requirements which help the children to develop a serving attitude towards others. Once a clubber completes the Start Zone booklet, he or she is eligible to puchase the first handbook from The Ultimate Adventure Series. During their T&T experience, clubbers will progress through three handbooks at their own pace. Clubbers receive an award badge which contains places to mark the completion of each handbook segment. In addition to these regular sections, there are extra-credit sections (with special awards) throughout the handbooks. Clubbers will also receive a book completion patch to wear on their uniforms as each is completed.

    We have an awesome time learning God's Word, so JOIN OUR AWANA CLUB TODAY!!!
