Ministry Purpose


Awana's goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him.
  • Reaching.  The Great Commission, which Jesus gave to all believers, begins with evangelism  (Matt. 28:19-20).  Awana is an excellent tool for reaching nonbelievers with the gospel of Christ.  Awana will attract children where they can accept Christ as their Savior and learn to live for Him.
  • Training.  The Great Commission includes teaching or training.  Through Bible memorization and other Bible based achievements, clubbers learn the Word of God, which (if they are saved) helps develop their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Ministry Description

Awana is an international, nondenominational, Bible-centered youth organization providing weekday clubs and programs for three-year-olds through high schoolers.  The acrostic AWANA comes form the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Tim. 2:15).

An Awana Club meeting consists of three parts: games, achievements, and Bible time.  While SMBC supplies all the equipment, each clubber should bring $.50 weekly to provide special supplies.  Each child will complete an entrance booklet, which is the first step in Awana achievement.  Upon completion, your child is eligible to earn more awards as a member of Awana.  It is our desire to work with you in providing balanced physical, social, mental and spiritual activities for your child.
