Based in the Chicago area, Awana is the only organization with fully integrated evangelism and discipleship programs for ages 2 to 18 that actively involve parents, church leaders and mentors. Each week, more than a million children and youth, 250,000 volunteers and 170-plus field staff take part in Awana in over 18,000 churches in the U.S. and internationally. 

At NC3 we have 3 active Awana groups that meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30 - 8 pm during the school year:

  • Cubbies (preschool): celebrates preschoolers’ spiritual potential by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.
  • Sparks (K-2): teaches children about the people and events of the Bible. This builds a foundation of wisdom for knowing Jesus.
  • Truth & Training (third to sixth grade): answers kids’ key questions about God and the Bible, guiding them to grow in His grace.

The founders of Awana derived the Awana name from the first letters of "Approved workmen are not ashamed" as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 of the Bible.

The 2022-23 Awana club year runs September 6, 2023 - May 1, 2024.

Vacation Bible School

June 17-19, 2024

  • 9 am - 11:30 am
  • Ages 4 - 12 years
  • (Family Fun Finale on Wednesday morning, June 19th. Followed by a light lunch.)

Every day, our kids are bombarded with questions: Did God really create everything? Why do bad things happen? Was Noah’s ark real? Why do I need to be saved? Can I trust the Bible?

At this VBS, your kids will explore the biblical answers to these questions as they set off on an epic adventure from Genesis to Revelation. Amid sloths, butterflies, river dolphins, and dart frogs, your children will sail along on a fun jungle cruise, stopping at seven ports of call. These ports are the 7 C’s of History: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, and Consummation. Kids will discover how these events shape our world, and they will learn to reconnect the Bible to their everyday life.

Prepare to swing into fun as we head out on The Great Jungle Journey!

T-Shirt pre-orders will be taken through April to secure a shirt in your child's size ($5 each)
