… Igniting Vibrant Faith

The children’s ministry @ Bow Valley exists to support parents and to provide environments where kids can encounter God and His word. Our prayer is that God would use this ministry to ignite a vibrant faith in the hearts of kids and families, developing hearts that long to know Christ, to follow Him, and to make Him known.

What is Awana?

Awana creates welcoming environments where kids from every background will learn how a personal relationship with Christ affects their everyday lives. We will seek to partner with parents to help kids to know Christ and to develop a relationship with Him that will last for their entire lives. This ministry is offered to families who live in Cochrane. Awana meets on Wednesday evenings, from 6-7:30pm.

What does a night of Awana Look Like?

Your children will rotate through three main areas during an Awana meeting: 1) Handbook Groups, 2) Game Time, and 3) Large Group.

  1. Handbook Groups:  This time is devoted to scripture memory.  Children will earn awards and recognition as they work through their Awana handbooks in a caring small group atmosphere. They will be in the same group for the entire year.
  2. Game Time: Awana uses games that promote healthy competition and physical activity while allowing kids to participate no matter their skill level.
  3. Large Group: Singing and Bible teaching will be the focus of this time.  Kids will learn more about applying the truths of scripture to their lives.
