The Children’s Ministry serves preschoolers (3 year old potty trained through kindergarten) in a cooperative effort between the church and the home as parents and the Children’s Ministry Department team up to teach preschoolers about Jesus. Our elementary kids (1st through grade 6) offers relevant Bible studies, as well as many other fun and educational activities and programs. We provide biblically-based, age-appropriate Bible studies, dynamic worship, as well as many other fun and educational events that help to disciple all of our CVBC KIDS.
– Check out the different programs and services we have for kids below.
Awana starts September 9, 2018
What Does Awana Mean?
The letters are from II Timothy 2:15 and stand for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.
Awana is an evangelism and discipleship program for ages 3 to 18 that actively involves parents, church leaders and mentors. Each week, Awana gives kids the chance to memorize God’s word in a fun atmosphere, trains them to live according to its precepts, and equips them to tell others the message of Jesus Christ.
The purpose of Awana
To reach boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to serve Him. At Cibolo Valley, we want to build boys and girls. We want to drop anchors of truth into their hearts now that will guide them into the people God created them to be when they get older.

A typical night at Awana is broken down into 3 segments:
Game Time – Every Awana meeting involves high energy game time with lots of team competition as well as team work. Organized games get all the children to participate, unleashing natural energy and enthusiasm.
Handbook Time – Using achievement-oriented learning segments, Awana training emphasizes the importance of God and His Word for sound living. Clubbers progress through handbooks at their own pace & leaders meet with them individually to go over what they have learned.
Council Time – Council time begins with group Bible study that is tailored to the ages of the clubbers.
Additionally, special theme nights throughout the year cultivate a spirit of fun and community, and clubbers are encouraged to invite their friends. Other events include an Awana Grand Prix for all clubs.
