Kids enjoy Awana (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed) every Wednesday evening with small group sessions, big group lessons, and lots of entertaining games. Scripture memory verses and a detailed curriculum lay a foundation and build on it for Pre-K through 6th grade.
From the AWANA website: Awana equips local volunteers in churches around the world with Biblical evangelism and discipleship solutions so that today’s children may become tomorrow’s Christian leaders, in every aspect of society and culture.

What is AWANA?
Awana (derived from the first letters of "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15) is an international, evangelical, Christian nonprofit organization founded in 1950, headquartered in Streamwood, Illinois. The mission of Awana is to help "reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world for God." It gives children from every background and cultural setting a place to belong, build confidence and grow in Christian faith.
Some statistics suggest that most Americans who profess faith in Christ will do so by age 15 or not at all. A scary thought, to be sure, and one which motivates many Christian parents to take steps with their young children.
Many local churches offer an Awana program. In that sense, we are one among many. This is actually a lot of work; it takes time, money and adult volunteers. We do it to serve families in our community, providing a convenient and nearby opportunity to get their kids engaged in a highly effective program establishing strong Christian values. And… it’s never boring, either for the kids or the grown-ups.
And by the way, if you’re no longer a teenager and you aren’t sure whether you have every truly professed faith in Christ, don’t worry. There is still time; there is room at the Cross for you, and there is room at TBC for you. Ask one of us about it.
