A Biblically-based program for children and youth, from age 2 to grade 6, that combines fun and excitement, while teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and how to serve Him. Awana is rooted in the idea that children can have fun while learning God’s Word.


Each club meeting consists of three parts:

  • Council Time- large-group worship & featured speaker

  • Handbook Time- Bible verse memorization and understanding in a small group setting

  • Game Time- emphasizes fun, team building and sportsmanship

The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  Our goal is reach children, and their families, with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.


Our clubs meet on Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6:30pm to 8:15pm.  Our club year kicks off on the first Wednesday after Labor day.  The Awana Directors at Grace are Daryll & Julie Melton.
