The term "AWANA" stand for Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15 which says, "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." (NIV)
The purpose of the Awana ministry is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. The Awana ministry at Central Baptist works in unison with the other ministries at Central Baptist to help your child learn about Jesus and to grow in Him.
Through the AWANA ministry, it is our desire to help your child grow spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. We believe that children are a vital part of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. We wish to encourage your child to draw closer to the Lord through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, scripture memorization, and Godly relationships with other people. We desire to help kids realize that having a relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ is the most exciting and important thing any of us can ever have.
