Awana

Organizer: Kevin Sauder

Awana is an acronym for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed,” taken from 2 Timothy 2:15, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.”

Awana is all about building friendships, learning the Bible, and getting to know God better in an atmosphere of fun and engaging activity. Each week, kids memorize scripture, play games, open their Bibles, and learn what it means to follow Jesus. Our Awana team loves kids, loves God’s Word, and loves making the Bible come to life for children. Children will gain a well-rounded understanding of key Bible passages that God will use for the rest of their lives.

Awana meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30-80:0p. during the school year. Your child can join in at any time.

Note that during the 2020-21 Awana year, our nightly schedule has been shortened. We meet from 6:30-7:30. Families can choose between an At-Home (online) or In-Person (on site) option for their child.
