AWANA Children's Ministry!
AWANA is where K3 - 5th grade kids can learn about the Bible
and memorize scripture in a fun and exciting way. The word, "AWANA", stands for
"Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" and is based on 2 Timothy 2:15,
"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth." (KJV)
each Wednesday night during the school year from 6:00 to 7:45 pm. Children's Choir also meets during our AWANA schedule. Churchwide Wednesday night supper served at 5:00 pm (Donation only)
Parents drop off and pick up children in Eastlan's Family Life Center.
And participation in AWANA is not limited to Eastlan members - everyone is welcome!

Eastlan's AWANA program currently includes the following clubs:
Cubbies - for preschool ages 3 and 4
Cubbies is a preschooler program designed to meet two objectives:
young children can and should receive spiritual training,
and the home is the primary place for children to receive their spiritual training.
Cubbies meets these objectives through FUN, and lots of it!
But the fun has a purpose Ė to reach and train kids for Jesus Christ.
Games, puppets, crafts, awards and other activities transform the Cubbies program into a lively weekly experience
where fun and learning go hand in hand!

Sparks - for K5, 1st and 2nd graders
Sparks builds on Cubbies with curriculum that takes children deeper into Godís Word.
Boys and girls frequently come to understand the need to trust Christ as their personal Savior
while in Sparks because the program is firmly grounded in Scripture.
Three Sparks handbooks feature: basic truths about God, Jesus Christ and salvation;
Scripture memorization; and a clear, consistent presentation of the gospel message.
Sparks meetings combine learning with fun, creating irresistible excitement for kids.
Along the way, Sparky, the friendly firefly, encourages children to learn verses and complete assignments
as they progress through their handbooks.

Truth & Training - for 3rd thru 6th graders
Truth & Training teaches older children the Truth of Godís Word while Training them
to follow Christ in their daily lives. T&T trains leaders of tomorrow today with
a variety of dynamic tools to get kids excited about Godís Word:
four handbooks of increasing difficulty to teach children
that lifeís ultimate adventure is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ;
a cast of fun characters for boys and girls to learn from and follow through interesting journeys in the handbooks;
weekly meetings to expose children to the gospel message, Scripture memory, Bible study,
accomplishment awards, and team-oriented games with gut-busting fun;
a Bible-centered curriculum to help kids build a firm foundation for their faith,
hide Godís Word in their heart, and apply the truths of Scripture to their daily lives;
and interactive CDs with exciting high-tech games to teach and reinforce key biblical truths.
In T&T, evangelism and discipleship go hand in hand.
