Spring Awards Dates

Cubbies Awards - Wednesday, May 8 at 7:00 (Parents should be in attendance.)

Cubbies should be dropped off at their regular time at 6:30 to prepare. Parents will be invited back to the Big Room to find their seats at 6:50. After the Awards, parents can take Cubbies with them, but any Sparks and T&T children will need to be checked out at 8:00 from the front desk as usual.

Missions Store Night & Cubbies Missions Party - Wednesday, May 15 at 6:30 (Last night of Awana.)

Cubbies will have a special missions party and Sparks and T&T will participate in our Missions Store Night. This will be the last Wednesday night of the Spring.

Sparks and T&T Awards - Sunday, May 19 at 6:30 (Parents should be in attendance.)

Doors will open at 6:15 for families to find their seats. Kids will sit with their leaders in a designated pew before and during the program. Once a child has received their awards they may go and sit with their parents for the remainder of the program. There will be no formal check-in/out process for this evening.

AWANA is an exciting and fun way to learn God’s word. Utilizing three divisions of time – Large Group Time, Small Group Time, and Game Time – AWANA teaches Biblical principles through Bible lessons, scripture memorization, games, and missions activities! Children learn to grow spiritually, mentally, and socially, while earning various awards for achievements in their handbooks.


Children meet at the church from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. each Wednesday. We use AWANA materials (Cubbies, Sparks and T&T). The infant/toddler rooms are staffed so those parents who are helping teach have a safe place to bring their little ones. All ages, from preschool through 4th grade, meet with their own age group to engage with scripture in a setting designed just for them!

At FBC Benbrook, we desire to make Awana affordable and accessible for all families who attend. With that goal in mind we have switched to using the Awana Essentials Handbooks for T&T and Sparks. This allows for greater chances for discipleship in small group as leaders and children are able to focus more on the meaning of the verses and life application in the time available. We also have switched to our own tshirt uniforms for both T&T and Sparks. This effort seeks to provide a meaningful experience for families with the Awana curriculum while also defraying the financial cost of the program.

If any families wish to still use the full handbooks or regular uniforms they are always welcome to and we are happy to oblige.

Cubbies (3 years-5 years)

Cubbies nurtures the budding faith of preschoolers and celebrates their desire to explore all that God has created. The Cubbies curriculum displays the greatness of God's character to preschoolers who are constantly asking questions!

Sparks (K – 2nd grade)

Sparks ignites a child’s curiosity to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ. From their handbooks to their Bible Study, kids learn not only what the Bible says, but also why it says it and what it means for us today.

Truth and Training (3rd – 4th grade)

T&T takes students on a journey by answering their questions about God and the Bible while guiding them to grow in Christ’s love and live out their faith. Their Bible study explores the concept of grace by focusing on the character and nature of God, identity of Christ, as well as the structure and format of the Bible.

Our 5th-6th Graders attend Preteen Bible Study on Wednesday Nights during the same time as Awana.
