What is Awana?
Awana is a nondenominational ministry that assists churches in reaching children and teenagers with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him. Awana provides youth with a fun environment to learn the gospel through Bible memory verses which is the cornerstone of learning the gospel through fun Bible-centered curriculum. Other activities include games, puppets, crafts, awards and other opportunities to increase their knowledge of Jesus Christ.
