What is Awana?

Awana logo

Awana is a FUN children’s program for ages 3 years through the 8th grade that includes games, Bible memory, refreshments and Bible lessons. The name is taken from 2nd Timothy 2:15-16:

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.
(Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed)

Awana meets during the school year on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00pm. Dues are 75¢ each week and club members purchase T-shirt uniforms and handbooks to work in. Various awards are given throughout the year. Prizes (sometimes candy) are awarded to those who dress up on theme nights – be aware that you must be dressed up before you come to Awana to receive a prize.
