AWANA is a non-denominational children’s ministry open to all kids
from pre-school to 6th grade. AWANA stands for “Approved Workmen
Are Not Ashamed”. This statement comes from the Bible (2
Timothy 2:15). It describes the work of AWANA in reaching boys and
girls with the gospel of Christ to train them to serve Him. We believe
that the AWANA experience will help your child progress in spiritual,
social, mental, and physical aspects of life and we hope this
experience will be a blessing to your whole family.
At AWANA Clubbers are divided into groups: Preschool (Cubbies), K-2
Grade (Sparks), and 3rd-6th Grade (T&T’ers). Each group takes part in
the basic activities: Handbook time, Game time, and Council time.
Clubbers love the activities and playing around the Awana game circle.
At Handbook time, Clubbers have an opportunity to meet with an adult
leader in a small group setting to ask questions, memorize Bible
verses and work through their handbooks. And during Council time,
children will be exposed to practical messages from the Bible designed
to help them apply spiritual truth to everyday life.
AWANA is held Sundays, 3pm-5pm at Prairie Baptist Church. From
John Day, Church vans will leave Cornerstone Christian Fellowship
at 2:30 pm and return to Cornerstone around 5:20 pm. If you have any
question, give us a call: 541-820-3696.
Here at Prairie Baptist Church, our mission is to live in obedience to
the Lord Jesus Christ and we are committed to bringing people to new
life and maturity in Christ, through loving God, loving others and
reaching our world. We do this by being involved in and supporting,
many Ministries and Missionary Organizations throughout Grant County
and the world. For example, some local ministries are AWANA,
Helping Hands, Prairie City Food Bank & Soup’s On, Young Life, and a
Sunday afternoon service at Blue Mountain Care Center. We also offer
Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies, Men’s Coffee, Men’s Breakfast,
Home Community Groups, and Youth Group. The Youth Group is open
to youth from Middle School to High School ages. They meet at the
Prairie Baptist Church building in Prairie City,
Sponsored By
Sunday at 5:30 pm. For youth in the John Day
area, there is a youth group held at Cornerstone
Christian Fellowship, Sunday from 3pm-5pm.
