Awana Children's Ministry
Our goal at Awana is to provide a safe and loving environment where children and young people will come to know, love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ. We are thankful for God's blessing on this ministry and for the growth in numbers that we have seen. We are dependent on leaders who feel called to serve in this ministry. Because of this, space may be limited.
Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00 PM, September 4, 2019 - May 13, 2020
Welcome to Awana! This acronym is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 which says, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” The acronym then stands for: Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.
Awana is a Christian club for boys and girls from age 3 through 18 years. The club is broken down into:
- Cubbies--for 3-5 year-olds, for Preschoolers before they start Kindergarten; We are thanking God for our leader for Cubbies this year! Cubbies is now closed and we can no longer accept any more registrations.
- Sparks—for Kindergarten through Second Grade;
- Truth and Training—for Third through Sixth Graders;
- Trek and Journey—for Seventh Graders through Seniors in High School.
The Awana Club meets here at First Baptist Church on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 PM from September 4, 2019 through May 13, 2020. See Club Nights and breaks included in "Special Nights and Club Meetings" schedule below.
Each evening the children are involved in three basic activities. They have a time of Bible Stories/Study or Stories of Great Christians along with worshipful music. Another segment involves the children Reciting Memory Verses they have been learning to earn awards. The Game Time provides active participation by the children with lots of cheering and encouragement!
