Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Southview offers Awana Clubs for children two years before Kindergarten through 6th grade on Wednesday evenings during the school year (mid August through the first week of May). We begin at 6 p.m. and end by 7:45 p.m. (Cubbies end at 7:30). Our 7th - 12th grade clubs are held Sunday mornings beginning at 11 a.m. during the school year.
A child may visit twice before they are asked to register. There is a cost per child (to purchase a uniform, a handbook, and awards the child can earn). Scholarships are available. Please do not let finances prevent your child(ren) from attending Awana. All other functions and expenses are covered by our church.
If wish to visit or register you child, please check in with one of our staff at the Secretaries’ Table located in the hallway on Wednesday evening.
For those in Sparks and T&T Clubs, we have Theme Nights and Contests all year long. T&T Clubbers are encouraged to participate in special events including Bible Quiz and Awana Games which are held outside of regular club time.
We celebrate our accomplishments with an Award Service and Carnival held on the first Saturday in May.
Cubbies celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
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. And the night wouldn’t be complete without a snack and craft project!
Our Cubbies Club begins and ends in the classroom. Parents are asked to sign their child in and to pick him/her up at the room.
Sparks ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids (Kindergarten through second-grade) to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ.
Truth & Training
T & T engages third- through sixth-graders by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ’s grace.
The Sparks Club and the T&T Club have a great time each week in three main segments:
- Handbook Time – during which a clubber completes sections in a handbook including memorizing Bible verses, reciting the books of the Bible, and other activities on Missions and prayer. Completion of these sections earns clubbers uniform awards as well as tickets for games at our year-end Carnival. Completion of the handbook earns a ribbon or trophy.
- Game Time – where clubbers have fun playing a wide variety of games on the Awana Game circle with others on their ‘color’ team.
- Large Group Time – is when we sing, laugh, have announcements and listen to a Bible lesson
Sparks and T&T begin and end in the Fellowship Hall with Opening and Closing segments. Parents are required to come to the Fellowship Hall to pick up their children.
Trek challenges seventh and eighth graders to consider their destiny in Christ and pursue it through life application of God’s Word.
Flexibility in Trek allows middle schoolers to just participate in the Bible Study and other activities (like touring the People’s City Mission) or to earn yearly awards by completing the verse memorization and other requirements.
Journey (high school) leads students through an in-depth study of Scripture. This motivates them to see life with God’s perspective and to influence others. Journey features an energetic look, biblically based content, life application and an emphasis on Scripture memory. During the four year program, a student will also have read through the Bible.
The Citation Award
Completion of all materials from 3rd – 12th grade qualifies a clubber to earn the Citation award! Many bible colleges offer scholarships based on completing Awana Clubs material.
