Why Puggles?- 7 reasons

Parents Training

The person who takes the most significant role in Puggles is parents; not teachers. Puggles® workbooks are made to provide ideas for parents to nurture their children spiritually as well as encourage consistently. The role of the church and teachersis to strengthen what is being taught at home through parents.

Unforgettable Words

There is no such thing: “You are too young to hear the Word of God!” All Puggles’ activities are laid in the foundation of the Word of God.The curriculums and activities of every week forPugglesmeetings are made to strengthen the Word of God that is taught at home and to repeat the truth of the Gospel, focusing on the main subject of each chapter. During the time when the Word of God is retaught in various ways with repetition, the 4-year-old children experience the joy of learning God’s Word on their own and understanding it.

Great World of God

For Puggles, it has the purpose of building the firm faith foundation as having the focus on nurturing in God since the children are young. Without respect toward the Word of God, children are not able to comprehend God,His commandments, and the necessity of salvation, and what it means to make a biblical choice for wise life. The curriculum for Puggles® is taught in an effective way with various materials to teach about having respect towards the authority of God, the Son of God: Jesus Christ, and the Bible.

Growing in Christianity

Puggles® activities help spiritual nurturing at home. The Bible indicates that parents are the spiritual teachers for children. (Det. 6:4-9, Proverbs 6:20-23, Eph. 6:4).Puggles® activities provide the opportunity to begin to shape the habit of faith with interest in Children’s spiritual growth and learning as various learning may begin in their lives in general.

Learning with Fun

According to the third ministry principle, which is ‘Awana is fun and exciting’,Puggles® activities attract children and are made up to bring interest and excitement from the children. The 4-year-old children will experience joy in learning God’s truth through easy and fun activities with friendly Puggles the Platypus and crafts time that stimulates five senses.

Everyday Activity

Puggles® activities are based on “doing” it with parents at home every day. The most effective education method for children is reinforcement through repetition. Through 5 days of home activity and club meeting through Puggles® at-home-curriculum, children listen to the Word of God, memorize it, and understand it.

Savior of All

4-year-old Children need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ came down to earth for small and delicate 4-year-old children. Ears of the 4-year-old children are a gift from God to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Eyes of the 4-year-old children are a blessing from God to see Jesus Christ. There is no insufficient age to hear the Gospel. Jesus Christ is the savior for all.
