Truth & Training (T&T) engages third- through sixth-graders by answering their questions about God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life stage to grow in Christ’s grace. Handbooks and large-group lessons deepen a child’s knowledge about God and His Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action in everyday life. T&T is different from other Awana programs. It is comprised of two clubs with distinct curriculum,
- T&T Ultimate Adventure™ for third and fourth grades
- T&T Ultimate Challenge™ for fifth and sixth grades
Trek® challenges junior high students in 7th and 8th grades to consider their destiny in Christ and pursue it through life application of God’s Word. Each year they go through a workbook with 24 in-depth lessons featuring Bible study, Scripture memory, and practical application. The club night also includes fun, active games that junior high students love!
Journey® establishes high school students as lifelong disciples through a deep study of God’s Word, mobilizing them to live with godly perspective and evident faith. Students work through 2 books each year that encourage them to study and read the Bible on their own. After reciting their verses on club nights, students put what they are learning into action by going to serve in other AWANA club areas.
