Puggles 2-3 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.
Each year of Cubbies will cover both Old Testament and New Testament Bible stories. Thirty-two lessons per year (including two lessons coordinating with the Apple Acres Entrance Booklet and four special days lessons) place special focus on what each Bible story teaches us about God’s character.
The Sparks Club builds a foundation of biblical wisdom through memory verse drills, crafts, activities and review of key doctrine and Bible facts.
They begin a sequential journey through the Bible, using a series of handbooks – HangGlider, WingRunner, and SkyStormer.
Before working in a handbook, all newcomers to Sparks will complete an entrance booklet – Flight 3:16 – that centers on the gospel message of John 3:16.
Truth & Training 3rd Grade and up
The very first night clubbers attend T&T they receive a Start Zone, the starting point for all T&T clubbers. They learn what it means to trust Jesus Christ as Savior. They are taught many concepts that are grounded in God’s word. This helps children learn these concepts and to get the gospel into homes. Of course, many clubbers have already trusted Christ as Savior. For them, Start Zone is a good review and a tool that they can use to share the gospel with their friends. Based on each child’s level of understanding, they are taught from where they are to learn or strengthen their relationship with God.
