AWANA is an international, Bible-centered children’s and youth ministry. The acronym AWANA comes from “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
Five Benefits of AWANA
Fun–One of the best parts of AWANA is that your child will learn these skills while having fun.
Memorization Skills–Memorizing Bible verses is a key to the AWANA program.
Teamwork–AWANA provides a sense of belonging for children. The uniforms are worn each week help kids feel part of the group.
Confidence–Memorizing verses is hard work. Ask any kid in AWANA. But also ask those who have finished a handbook to show you their award, and you will see a proud smile. For children that don’t excel at sports, this can be crucial to building self-esteem.
Spiritual Compass–In the world around us, we can clearly see a lack of moral and spiritual direction. AWANA trains children to use the Bible to develop morals and strong character.

Every AWANA meeting includes team and individual competition. Dozens of organized games get everyone’s participation, unleashing natural energy and enthusiasm. Everyone wins in that each team member is cheered by their team to do their best.
Using achievement-oriented learning segments, AWANA emphasizes the importance of God’s Word for sound living. Clubbers progress through graded handbooks, working individually and together with their leaders.
This is a general session for everyone. It’s quality time for group Bible study followed by awards and recognition for individual handbook progress and for point scored during team play.
Kid’s Blast (Bible learning and spiritual transformation) (July-August)
Kid’s Blast is a large group, media-driven, interactive worship experience for kids. Kids will learn how to go beyond the facts of the Bible and how to apply it to their lives each day. Each week we will have Bible learning, music, games, team time and fun.
Kid’s Blast is offered on Wednesday Evenings from 6:30-8:00pm for entering 1st graders to completed 5th graders.
