AWANA is a program and ministry tool used worldwide that we have chosen for Jacksonville Bible Church to assist us in leading children and youth, ages 3 through 6th grade, to know, love, and serve God. Awana helps us come along side parents both in our church and community to support them as they work to develop spiritually strong children who faithfully follow Jesus Christ and become all God intends them to be. Awana offers a tested and proven approach that blends Bible teaching, evangelism, Scripture memorization and tons of fun.
We meet on Sunday evenings from 5:00-7:00 p.m. from September through Mid-May. For a breakdown of which kids belong in which group and for a copy of this year’s calendar, click here.

CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL
On Sundays, we offer child care for nursery aged children and Sunday School for children ages 2 through 6th grade from 9:15-10:15 a.m. For our Sunday School ministries, we use Gospel Light curriculum. This material is designed to teach the Bible, pure and simple, with the goal of helping children to know Jesus and equipping them to make Him known. Our children's Sunday School classes meet on the second and third floor of our educational building. Following is a breakdown of our classes: Nursery, 2's & 3's, 4's & 5's (2nd floor of our educational building); grades 1-3, grades 4-6, grades 7-12 (3rd floor of our educational building)
We offer child care on Sunday mornings during the worship service for children ages infant through 5. All of our child care during this time is located on the 2nd floor of our educational building. We have a nursery for children who are infants and toddlers. We also have separate rooms for children ages 2-3 and children ages 4-5. 4 & 5 year old children are encouraged to join their parents for the beginning of the worship service. These children will be dismissed for Children's Church during our greeting time and before the sermon.
