The church believes strongly in the importance of her youth, which is reflected in the AWANA ministry.  AWANA is an acronym which stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.   AWANA is designed to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.  Theme nights, games, Bible memorization, and awards for completion of material keep the kids coming back each week.  This high-energy evangelistic program is for children 3 years of age through high school.
