AWANA is a discipleship ministry for children from 3 years old to 6th grade. It's name comes from 1 Tim 2:15: "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, A Worker who has no Need to be Ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth."
To ensure a robust, quality program, we partner with several like-minded local churches to make this ministry a reality. The result is an AWANA program that is well-staffed, well-funded, and well-attended. It includes about 100 children, 40 trained adult leaders, and 15 teen helpers. Every gathering is action-packed with a large group Bible lesson, small group mentoring, game times, and theme nights.
Because our program is a joint venture of like-minded churches, our AWANA program meets on the campus of South Side Bible Church in Battle Creek, which has ample space for the large number of participants.
AWANA meets on Mondays from 6pm - 8pm during the school year. Here is our calendar for the 2021-2022 AWANA year:
