Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed
The AWANA program (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed) meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 from September through May. It is offered for ages 4 through the 5th grade. Approximately 30-40 adult volunteer staff supervise, teach, and encourage a constantly growing group of children in Scripture memory and activities.
Age group breakdown:
1. Cubbies-ages 3-5 (boys & girls)
2. Sparks- K-2nd grade (boys & girls)
3. T&T-3rd-5th grade boys
4. T&T-3rd-5th grade girls
Beyond the weekly game activities, handbook memory work and counsel ring time, each club is involved in a wide variety of extra activities such as Grand Prix, sleepovers, campfires, etc.
AWANA shares can be earned for team competition, attendance, handbook and Scripture memory and spent at our very own First Baptist store on novelty items.
Adult staff training and the annual AWANA Conference contribute to the leaders effectively ministering to the various age groups.
Awana provides weekly programs and special events that introduce children to Jesus Christ and build a biblical foundation for faith. A national survey found long-term Awana participation to be as important as all other church activities combined. Nearly 93 percent of our alumni who took part in Awana for six or more years still attend church as adults.
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.
