AWANA

  

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health,  just as your soul prospers.” 3 John 1:2


Our Mission

To ensure that each youth who participates in our ministry Grow, Love, and Serve Christ.


What is AWANA?

AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed) is a nondenominational youth ministry committed to reaching boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and training them to serve Him. The heartbeat of AWANA is reaching children around the world with the good news that Jesus Christ loves them and can save them from sin. Each week, more than one million boys and girls in over 110 countries attend AWANA clubs where they play games, memorize Bible verses and listen to Bible stories.


From preschool to high school, children and youth have fun while being taught the Word of God. The weekly AWANA clubs all function basically the same way. A 90-minute to two-hour club session features three segments: Game Time, Handbook Time and Council Time. Handbook Time, children work through age-appropriate handbooks memorizing Bible verses and doing activities ranging from patriotism to community service. They earn awards based on their work. The final segment, Council Time, consists of singing, puppets, Bible stories and lessons based on Christian principles. 


Besides weekly meetings, other AWANA activities occur throughout the year to include AWANA Games where competitions bring area churches together to compete in games; Bible Quiz Meets allow youth to test their knowledge of scripture and each summer, over 9,000 young people attend 40 AWANA Scholarship Camps across America and Canada.
