Because Kids Matter to God

When: Awana® is a a Bible Club for Boys & Girls that meets at the chapel every Wednesday from 6:30 - 8:00 PM, September through April.

Exception: Awana® is not held when Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) are closed due to inclement weather or when a Storm Warning is issued.

Who can attend? Children Pre-K to 6th grade.  Parents are also welcome to visit the club at any time.


Whether it's the fun puppets, the exciting games or all their "Cubbies friends," they simply love it. At Story Time each week, preschoolers learn about God – the greatness of His love and His Word – and about His Son, Jesus Christ, the promised Savior. Non-competitive games build excitement and reinforce Story Time lesson themes.


The kids love their red vests, the exciting games and spending time with leaders and friends.  Sparks is divided into three years, each with a unique rank: HangGlider®WingRunner® and SkyStormer™. Each year, Sparks clubbers:
• explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture
• memorize Bible verses
• complete handbook activities


The handbooks, combined with Large Group Time lessons from the WHO Do I Need to Know From the Bible series, take your child on a journey through the entire Bible!


Handbooks and large-group lessons deepen a child's knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life.  Kids in T&T learn that the Bible is true and they can firmly trust what it says. Each Ultimate Adventure handbook answers four questions about God and the Bible that third- and fourth-graders frequently ask. Each Ultimate Challenge handbook answers four questions about God and the Bible that preteens typically ask.

How can I help or get involved?

You can pray regularly and consistently for both the children who attend and the teachers and helpers who volunteer at the club.

You can become a teacher or a helper.  Please contact Giancarlo Manaloto or Mike Bryan for more information about training and involvement opportunities.
