Because Kids Matter to God!
2 Timothy 2:15
Who we are, What we do:
Awana is a nondenominational
ministry that assists churches in reaching children & teenagers
with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him.
Awana Clubs International
supplies programs, materials and training for more than 12,000
churches in over 110 countries. Their message to churches is
simple: We're here to serve you with a ministry that is all about
fun with a purpose - to win and grow kids for Christ!
Reaching our young people is
very important! Did you know that 85% of all people who do not
accept Jesus Christ by age 18 never will?
That's why Awana offers a
series of clubs and programs geared to the needs of a particular
age or grade. As a vital part of our local church ministry, Awana
clubs and programs effectively reach young people with the good
news of Jesus Christ.
Here at Calvary Baptist
Church, our Awana ministry works with other ministries to give our
children and youth a well-balanced emphasis on knowing Jesus and
how we can live for Him and serve Him.
