Please call 541-820-3696 for additional information 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. 22156 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.
