Awana is an international youth program offered by our church as a positive influence in the development of our area’s young people.  It is a week-night club program designed to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and to train them to serve Him.  The Awana name is derived from an idea in the Bible found in II Timothy 2:15, “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.”


Our club is one of over 12,000 in the United States, and our charter number is #5328. There are over 7,000 additional clubs around the world.  We are in our 36th year of Awana at Calvary Baptist Church. Awana is for all boys and girls regardless of church affiliation.  It is made up of 4 individual clubs:

Puggles - Two and three-year-olds (for those whose parents are attending Wednesday night Bible Study or serving in Awana, Youth Group, or Nursery at Calvary on Wednesday nights).

Cubbies - Pre-schoolers who are 3 years old by October 1.

Sparks - Boys and girls in grades K - 2nd.

T&T (Truth-N-Training) - Boys and girls in grades 3rd - 6th.


Awana Clubs 2019-2020 began Wednesday, September 11th, 2019. Children however may join at anytime. 

Awana meets at Calvary each Wednesday evening when school is in session (Sept-May). The meetings run from 6:45 to 8:30 PM

Each Awana meeting is divided into 3 segments:

Game Time - Clubbers enter into teamwork and competition games. Sportsmanship and fair play are stressed as well as team spirit and cooperation.

Handbook Time - Clubbers study and recite the Bible verses from their handbooks and earn awards.

Lesson Time - Clubbers hear a Bible message and participate in singing together.
