"What is Awana?
For over six decades, the Lord has used the ministry of Awana to reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world. The unchanging truth of the gospel drives the same vision we’ve held all these years to reach children in every corner of the globe as we walk boldly into the future and continue to be used by God to help change the world." (from www.awana.org)
AWANA stands for “Approved workmen are not ashamed” with 2 Timothy 2:15 as the theme verse.
Ages Pre-K thru 2nd Grade - every Sunday during the worship service

become aware that God wants everyone to know of His love;
move from a focus on self to a focus on others;
apply Bible thoughts to their lives as they learn to pray, give, and help others;
and, their families learn of ways to give their time, talents, and money.

Children In Action
Children in Action is a dynamic WMU missions organization for boys and girls in grades 1–6. Children in Action allows children to explore missions and participate in planned mission action projects.
In Children in Action, children learn
a biblical worldview;
ways to demonstrate Christ's love to others;
how God is working around the world; and,
their part of God's plan.
Children in Action is designed with both girls and boys in mind. Children in Action helps children grow spiritually, recognizing the varying developmental stages of children in each grade. Children in Action materials are designed to help both younger and older children have missions experiences that lay a foundation for coming to faith in Christ as Savior and making missions an important part of their daily lives.
