A typical Awana Club night includes songs, Bible lesson, Scripture memorization, small group discussion, snacks and game time. Our main emphasis is helping children to better know and understand God’s Word. We believe we can best accomplish this goal by having our adult leaders spend time in small groups with the students to guide them in this learning process. Our Awana leaders are prescreened, trained adults and well-supervised high school student leaders who genuinely care about sharing God’s Word through children’s ministries.
Special theme nights will make coming to Awana a highlight of your child’s week. The Awana Grand Prix car competition in January is great family fun.
All of our Awana Clubs meet in the Ministry Center, our main church building. Our Trek club for middle school meets in The Loft – the second floor of the Ministry Center.
If you have any questions about the Awana Clubs at First Baptist Church, including transportation needs, please contact Mark Massaro, Pastor of Children’s & Student Ministries, in the church office at 812-635-9200.
