The goal of the AWANA programs is to equip churches and parents to help train children in knowing, loving and serving Jesus Christ. Kids have fun at weekly AWANA meetings, learning through songs, Bible lessons, games, and memory work.
The acronym for AWANA is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workmanwho does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. (NIV)
My family and I are currently involved with an AWANA program at our local church. Other programs can be found all over the country. If you are interested in knowing more, you can check out the website for more information, and you can also access a "locator" there to find a club in your area.
