We will not be having Awana Clubs on 1/30 due to the severe weather. Stay safe and see you next week!


At FBC our mission is to disciple children to know, grow, and show the living God. 

Awana is an amazing program for children ages 3 - 5th grade. This program revolves around children memorizing the Word of God while having fun!

It is an amazing opportunity for your child to come, engage with children, and learn the Word of God. We hope to see you there!


This year Awana starts September 5th!

It is at First Baptist Church of Downers Grove from 6:30 PM- 8:00 PM. For Cubbies their program goes from 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM. Please drop off your child by the west entrance between First Baptist Church and the Lincoln Center. 

PLEASE NOTE:It is helpful, for the safety and security of children, to drive your car up to the entrance coming from Randall St, facing Maple Ave. We desire to create a safe and secure environment for your children, and doing this will help. 


Age Groups:


Games, puppets, crafts, and other activities make our preschool program an exciting weekly experience. Come join the fun as we learn from God's word about respecting God and others! 


Sparks club meetings combine fun and excitement with learning! It is an amazing weekly experience where we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ and how to wisely follow Him.  Sparks takes learning and fun to take children deeper into God's Word. 

Awana has a fantastic parent resource that we would love to share with you! Each book has songs / stories specifically for your Sparkie! Click here to access files for:

T&T seeks to teach boys and girls the truths of God's grace and how to live that out in their daily lives. This weekly program seeks to engage 3rd - 6th graders and point them the Gospel and God's Word! 


Want to help children grow in their walks with Jesus? Awana Clubs for First Baptist Church is looking for great volunteers to listen to children recite Bible verses, play games, help with administrative needs and more. Childcare will be provided to children of Awana volunteers (ages 2 & under).
