Awana Launches New Digital Weekend Curriculum

Awana®, historically known for its midweek curriculum discipleship programs for children and youth, has released a new digital weekend curriculum “Brite,” now available via subscription. The flexible, engaging Bible lessons for elementary and student age groups fit Sunday school, large or small group models, as well as home discipleship.

Awana practitioners and thought leaders designed Brite around one central question: What produces long-term fruit in the lives of kids into their adulthood?

“Today’s kids are going to need a heightened level of spiritual resilience to lead the church of 2050, as the cultural gap between the secular worldview and the church continues to widen,” says Awana President and Chief Strategy Officer Matt Markins.

Brite’s digital accessibility and lesson plan flexibility make it especially helpful for churches during the coronavirus, as ministries decide whether to meet in person, at home, or online.

With Brite, kids learn to apply God’s Word through the 3B’s of Resilient Child Discipleship: Belonging, Believing, and Becoming. Brite’s robust three-year scope and sequence explores the Bible from cover to cover. It combines gospel-focused teaching with biblically sound lessons, Scripture engagement through guided conversations, and engaging media.

Training resources, including digital lesson tools and a podcast, support parents and leaders throughout the discipleship journey. Children’s ministry leaders who participated in a field test for Brite describe it as fun, adaptable, and easy to teach.

Subscription prices are based on the number of students using Brite, so it’s affordable for any size group. For churches navigating financial hardship, Awana also offers scholarships, made possible by faithful ministry donors.
