Awana 2021-2022

We look forward to the AWANA programs for children ages 2-4th Grade, and 5Alive which serves our 5th Grade children. These programs are discipleship ministries that focus on getting kids in the Word. It is amazing seeing them commit God's word to memory each week.


The AWANA Club costs $20. This flat fee will cover your child's book and vest (Cubbies, Sparks) or shirt (TandT). Puggles and 5Alive are free.

Scholarships are available upon request.

Our First Kidz Children's Ministry is dedicated to partnering with parents to apply Deuteronomy 6: 5-7 "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up".


We have an exciting, loving, loud, and fun place where kidz are loved and they learn Jesus loves them! Come check us out! We love our First Kidz and look forward to having your children join us!
