Awana

ONE AWESOME NIGHT EACH WEEK. A LIFETIME OF SCRIPTURE.

Awana provides kids a fun environment to learn Bible verses, play games, and develop friendships. It’s an incredible investment in a child’s faith. For more than 60 years Grace Bible Church has been a part of Awana - leading kids to know, love and serve Christ through long-term discipleship.  We know that you’re concerned about your child’s success in every area of life and that you care about shaping their values, building their character and developing a strong moral foundation.  Every week we provide a three-part program designed to maximize your child’s attention, energy and time:  1.  Fun and exciting games for all skill levels; 2. Small group time with a caring adult leader as your child works through an introductory booklet and then an age-specific handbook; and 3. An interactive large group segment where kids hear a Bible lesson, sing and receive awards.

Awana meets on Tuesday nights, September through May, from 6:15 PM - 8:15. Awana is split and tailored according to age group. Please contact our Awana Ministry Director, DeeDee Foat for registration and location details.
