Awana is an international, Bible-centered children's and youth ministry providing local churches with weekly clubs and programs for preschool through high school. The goal of Awana is to reach children and teenagers, and their families, with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. The acronym Awana comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.
The Awana club for preschoolers (ages 3-4) meets the spiritual needs of young children through fun (crafts, games, awards), friendly characters and leaders, foundational teaching and family involvement (parents working with children to memorize a weekly scripture verse).
The Awana club for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade aims to take youngsters a step deeper into God's Word while giving boys and girls regular opportunities to hear the gospel and come to faith in Jesus Christ.
The club has all the elements of fun and excitement through the Bible story time and Awana game circle.
The Awana club for boys and girls in 3rd through 6th grade reflects the passion of Awana to teach this group the truth of God's word and to train them to follow Christ in their daily lives.
With a cast of fun characters in their handbooks, plus loving teachers, the students are exposed to the gospel message, Scripture memory, Bible study, awards, team-oriented games and lots of fun!
