For Boys and Girls Age 3 through Grade 6
Every Monday from 6:30-8:30 pm mid-September through May
Grace Bible Baptist Church & School has a strong commitment to the AWANA Club program. Over 25 years ago, Pastor Johnson felt a burden for our youth and, under his direction, the AWANA program was brought to Grace. AWANA is an international, Bible-centered youth ministry with the goal of reaching boys and girls age 3 years through 6th grade (and their families) with the Gospel of Christ and training them to serve Him. AWANA is an acronym from II Timothy 2:15, “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.” AWANA presents an opportunity for children to establish a relationship with God and, through Scripture memory, to grow spiritually, build self-esteem and develop good relationships with others.
Parents assist their children in this growth by encouraging them to learn the verses in their AWANA handbook and by sharing joy in the awards they earn. Feel free to visit the club meeting any Monday evening. Parents are encouraged to talk with us about any special concerns or questions. It is our desire to minister to the entire family and not just the children.
At every club meeting, boys and girls recite verses they have memorized, listen to a message from God’s Word, and play games. There are annual camping trips in April. Each AWANA Club meeting is an exciting time – so kids, come on out for an action-packed evening centered around Christ.
