The Tri-City Bible Church Awana program is designed to teach young people truths from God’s Word and the Good News about Jesus Christ. Our clubs and programs make Scripture memorization fun and involve parents as well as children!
Our clubs offer fun, friendship and serious Christian teaching that supports the teaching young people receive at home and at church. Living their faith can be difficult for our youth especially as they grow. Awana provides a comfortable place to learn and grow along with peers who share their faith. Awana also reaches out to un-churched youth, providing them with an enjoyable and comfortable introduction to Jesus. Awana is an excellent choice for parents who would like their children to learn Christian values while participating in a club.
Our Awana Clubs have been a ministry of Tri-City Bible Church since 1968, making it the longest running Awana Club in California!
The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. This motto comes from 2 Timothy 2:15: “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
The main aspects of our Awana program are:
- The Gospel message is central
- We help children memorize Scripture
- There are fun and exciting games each week
- Our leadership has had excellent training

- An evangelistic focus that reaches out to un-churched children and their families

CUBBIES celebrate the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3 to 5 year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word. Cubbies helps you lead your child to God early so your child will respect and trust Him for life. To enroll in Cubbies, a child must be 3 years old by September 1st.
SPARKS ignites the curiousity of early elementary-age kids (kindergarten through 2nd grade) to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ. Sparks clubbers: explore the biographies of people of the Bible from a new portion of Scripture; memorize Bible verses; and complete handbook activities. The handbooks, combined with Large Group Time, take your child on a journey through the entire Bible!
TRUTH & TRAINING 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. Tri-City Bible Church Awana T&T for 3rd-6th graders is divided into two separate clubs, one for boys and one for girls.
TREK for 7th and 8th Graders. The purpose of our Trek program is to help students fall in love with the Bible and with Jesus Christ. The lessons reinforce the truths about Scripture, the Gospel and the Christian life... truths that every junior higher needs to navigate the world they live in. The Trek handbooks include a Scripture verse to memorize and a short daily Bible reading where they can write down their thoughts and insights. The evening consists of small group time where they meet with a trained leader, an energetic game time, and a large group time where the teaching expands on what they have read in their daily devotions.
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. Tri-City Bible Church Journey students meet on Sunday afternoons from 3:30-5:30pm. The meeting consists of a game time, large group Bible Study, small group time with our trained staff, and then food and hang-out time. Our high school students also learn how to serve by working on Wednesdays as leaders-in-training in the younger clubs or serving in another ministry at their home church.
