Welcome to Connect Kids! Our mission is to partner with parents on their journey to disciple their children. We offer large group and small group learning experiences, discipleship classes, family events, and lots of fun!

Connect Kids has both large-group and small-group opportunities for your child each Sunday. This includes interactive small-group classes for Kindergarten through 5th grade using the FaithWeaver NOW curriculum. We also provide a large-group worship experience using the same weekly passage and theme, but different hands-on Bible activities using the companion KidsOwn Worship curriculum. Our leaders are dedicated to providing a fun experience for your child that is welcoming, nurturing, and safe. We hope to see you soon!

Awana Parent Meetings



We usually have a parent meeting at the beginning of every club year to tell you about the program and answer any questions you have. This year there are lots of questions and so we have been working all summer to prepare for a safe club year. At this year’s parent meetings, we would like to discuss the upcoming year, what a typical evening will look like, and how you can help your child get the most out of the Awana program. We will be holding two parent meetings before the club year starts (see Zoom Links below).

Awana Drive Thru (2)

WEDNESDAY | 5:30PM - 7:00PM | SEP 9

We will host a Drive-Thru on Wednesday, September 9th, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm for you to pick up the materials you have purchased for the upcoming club year.


The name Awana is an acronym that stands for approved workmen are not ashamed. It is taken from the Bible in II Timothy 2:15 which reads, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn't need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth." (HCSB) As one of the fastest growing youth organizations, Awana provides a local church-sponsored program for boys and girls of all ages. Our hope is that all club members will develop faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and then build on that foundation to become obedient servants of God.


AWANA is a fun way for kids to learn about God through the Bible. Each age group has its own age-appropriate AWANA club.
