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.

Vacation Bible School

June 26-29, 2023

  • 9 am - 11:30 am
  • Ages 4 - 12 years
  • (Closing program for families will be Thursday, 6/29 starting at 6:30pm)

We are engaged in an epic battle for the hearts and minds of our youth. Every day, they’re bombarded with lies about who they are, who their Creator is, and where their salvation comes from. Thankfully, God has given his children armor to wear in this battle between truth and lies, light and darkness, good and evil.

With Keepers of the Kingdom, your kids will learn how they can be part of God’s kingdom through salvation in his Son and will be equipped with the armor of God to become Keepers of the Kingdom and strong in today’s battle for truth.

Registration is now open! Please visit this link to learn more and register:
