AWANA is a nationally known Bible club designed for the local church to help boys and girls memorize God’s Word and learn the truths of God’s teaching. Three main elements are used in this program.

The first element is Handbook time. Each child involved in AWANA spends time memorizing God’s Word. Different awards are given to encourage memorization.

The second element is Game time. Game Time sets AWANA apart and is often the highlight of a clubber’s week. The AWANA Game Circle is a fun feature that attracts new kids and helps everyone feel included right from the start. Most importantly, Game Time gets kids excited about gathering to learn God’s Word.

The third element is Council time. This is when Bible truths are explained and the gospel message is given.

Northside utilizes all three elements on Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M. Age groups include:

Cubbies — 3-year olds up to Kindergarten

Sparks — Kindergarten through the 2nd grade

TNT — 3rd through 6th grade

JV — 7th and 8th grades

24-7 (formerly known as Varsity) — 9th through 12th grades.
