WHAT is AWANA?

Awana is a fantastic program where many children have received Christ and are then discipled with intense Scripture memorization while still having a fun time.

What is Awana? Awana is an international youth program offered by Canyon Ferry Road Baptist Church, as a positive influence in the development of young people. The Awana name is derived from an idea in the Bible found in II Timothy 2:15 which reads, "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed."

Why Awana? In the purpose of Awana is stated best in the pledge to the Awana flag, "I pledge allegiance to the Awana flag, which stands for the Awana Clubs, whose goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him."

What do Awana Clubs teach? The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone is a sinner (Romans 3:23) and in God's eyes deserves eternal punishment in hell (Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15). But Jesus Christ, God's Son, paid the penalty for our sin when He was crucified on the cross and arose from the dead (Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4). If we trust Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, we receive God's gift of eternal life in heaven. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Salvation is a free gift; we cannot buy it or earn it by doing good works (Ephesians 2:8-9). Instead we must simply accept it. Each child and leader must understand this important message, for it is what our Awana Clubs teach and the reason for their existence.

Who may attend? Boys and girls age 3 through 6th grade.

When does Awana Meet? Wednesday, 6:15-7:30 PM during the school year.

Why should my child attend? Awana offers sound Biblical instruction, Scripture memory, organized games, great Christian Fellowship, and awards for completing Scripture verses and good sportsmanship.
