AWANA – Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (AWANA) is held Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30 pm (September through April). AWANA is a global, non-profit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve him.  AWANA provides weekly programs and activities for children ages 3 through grade 5 … from class time, which includes Bible memorization, to recreation time, to music and snack time.  AWANA is held September through April.  
 
Registration forms are available at the church and can be mailed to you upon request … just contact the church office at 540-433-2456 or info@hbcalive.org.  The cost is $20 per child with a max of $40 per family and can be paid at the time of registration.  This cost will cover your child’s uniform, booklets, badges, etc. You can also download a copy of the form by clicking here.
 
Children’s choir programs are held on Wednesday nights as part of AWANA.  Our children’s choirs teach the fundamentals of music and singing while learning songs of worship and praise.  Children sing for worship and special music programs several times throughout the year.

It is our goal to provide activities that communicate the love of God in a fun, safe and nurturing environment.
 
KIDS ALIVE! – Kids Alive is an exciting, hands-on, fun-filled Children’s Sunday School adventure for kindergarten through grade 5.  We utilize the innovative “Workshop Rotation Model.”  We have developed a 5-year curriculum with 60 Biblical themed units.  Each unit lasts 4-5 weeks.  The various workshops are developed around the 4 modalities of learning:  visual (seeing), auditory (hearing), kinestetic (moving), and tactile (touching).
 
Children “rotate” to a different workshop each Sunday to participate in a unique and creative Bible learning experience.  The workshops include: video, storytelling, drama/puppetry, cooking, simple science, art, music, and computer.  Kids Alive takes place in the remodeled children’s wing on the 2nd floor.  The five rooms have been designed and decorated to enhance children’s learning experiences as they get to know people and places in the Bible.  Come visit us in Kids Alive and see all the great things that are happening!

KINGDOM KIDS – Children’s Worship is offered for all children age 3 – grade 3 during the worship service. Children exit the worship center before the message. They proceed to a classroom to participate in “worship-related” activities, plus enjoy a light snack.  Nursery care is provided during our Sunday School and Worship Services, during Wednesday night activities, and for most church activities.
