Awana

Awana is a unique program for boys and girls, ages 3 to 6th grade. It’s emphasis is on developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Through Scripture memorization and application, Awana’s goal is to reach boys and girls and their families with the good news of Jesus Christ and train them to serve Him. Awana also teaches children to learn the importance of being team members, responding to authority and learning discipline, all within a biblical world view.Awana offers a series of clubs and programs, each geared to the needs of a particular age or grade. We meet Wednesday evening starting at 6:15 pm at our Vista church campus. You can contact our Awana Ministry Director, at 760-458-1343 or at Russell Miyoshi for more information.

Our Clubs

Puggles (usually older 2- and younger 3-year-olds)
 
In many circles, “puggle” is a common term for a baby platypus. In children’s ministry circles, Awana Puggles is an enriching program for your pre-Cubbies kids (usually older 2- and younger 3-year-olds) that presents basic biblical concepts through teaching cards, activities, music and games. Awana Puggles leaders have a leader’s guidebook to help them plan and direct club time and communicate the lesson.
Cubbies (3 & 4 years old)
 

Cubbies is the club for preschoolers during the two years prior to regular kindergarten (usually 3 and 4 year olds). Cubbies is unique because it supports and maintains the parents as the primary source of spiritual nurturing by directly involving them in the teaching and learning process. Cubbies uses fundamental Awana elements of Bible memorization, handbooks, awards, and activities. Developmentally appropriate lessons and activities combine basic Bible truths with popular preschool concepts of colors, shapes, numbers, and letters.

Sparks (Kindergarten – 2nd Grade)
 
Sparks is the club for lively kindergartners, 1st and 2nd-graders. Each Club session is divided into three segments. During Green Meadow Time, Sparkies gather for their Bible lesson. During Sparkle Time, clubbers complete handbook sections. In Game Time, Sparkies enjoy games played on the Awana Game Circle. Sparky, the friendly firefly appears throughout the Bible-based materials to encourage clubbers to complete their handbook achievements.
