Awana is an international Bible-centered youth organization. The acrostic Awana comes from the first letters of Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15). First Baptist’s Awana ministry provides a program for 3 year olds through the 6th grade, and new this year, “Trek” for 7th & 8th grade students.
We present the gospel every night in a way that each child can understand, no matter what age they are. We understand that salvation is a free gift, that we cannot earn it or buy it, and that Jesus has already paid the price for our sins on the cross. (Romans 3:23)
The key to winning the battle against sin is to memorize scripture and hide it in our hearts. This is what the Awana program is all about. Awana strongly emphasizes memorizing the Bible to help us during the battles in life, so we can have a victorious life in Jesus.
