AWANA's Purpose:
AWANA exists to reach children and youth
with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him



AWANA offers a series of clubs that are
geared to the needs of a particular age or grade:


Due to the young age of Puggles and Cubbies and the liability factor, our policy is that parents or grandparents DO NOT leave the church premises during their child's (or grandchilds) stay.  A child will have a parent or grandparent involved in Wednesday night activities at Watson Chapel Baptist Church from 6:15 - 8:00 p.m. (i.e. leadership position in Awana, in the nursery, in the youth group, in prayer meeting, and/or choir) in order for their child to be involved in the Puggles and Cubbies program.


Puggles is an enriching program for pre-Cubbie kids (usually 2 and younger 3 year olds) that teaches simple lessons through teaching cards, activities, music, and more.


Cubbies is the AWANA Club for preschoolers during the two years prior to regular kindergarten (usually 3 and 4-year-olds). Cubbies is unique because it supports and maintains the parents as the primary source of spiritual nurturing by directly involving them in the teaching and learning process. Cubbies uses fundamental AWANA elements of Bible memorization, handbooks, awards, and activities. Developmentally appropriate lessons and activities combine basic Bible truths with popular preschool concepts of colors, shapes, numbers, and letters.

Sparks is the AWANA Club for lively kindergartners, 1st and 2nd-graders. Each Club session is divided into three segments. During Green Meadow Time, Sparks gather for their Bible lesson. During Sparkle Time, clubbers complete handbook sections. In Game Time, Sparks enjoy games played on the AWANA Game Circle. Sparky, the friendly firefly, appears throughout the Bible-based materials to encourage clubbers to complete their handbook achievements.

Truth & Training AWANA Club is for 3rd-6th grade boys and girls. The T&T theme uses Bible-based material to lead student into an exciting adventure of the Word of God. The Club meeting consists of Council Time, when all clubbers get together for applicable Bible teaching, Handbook Time, when boys and girls meet in small groups to complete their handbook sections, and Game Time, when games are played on the AWANA Game Circle. 




This scholarship has been established to honor the memory of Bennie and Jessie Price who were superb examples for all Christians to emulate as they daily lived out their love for our Savior and His word.  Mr. Bennie and Mrs. Jessie understood Awana to be an excellent method for instilling God's Word in the hearts of young people with the good news and preparing them for kingdom work and they labored diligently in this effort.  We believe the establishing of this scholarship to be a fitting memorial, as we honor the life work of our beloved Mr. Bennie and Mrs. Jessie; who faithfully served the Lord they loved through the Awana Ministry.
