AWANA Clubs is a dynamic ministry at First Baptist Church.
The name AWANA is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, which is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. The purpose of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and to encourage them to serve Him. Each club night consists of three half-hour segments including a large group lesson, book time (where clubbers complete memorization and projects they have worked on at home), and game time. Children are divided into club groups based on their age or grade in school, starting with 2-year olds and going through 6th grade.
