As schools around the area begin gearing up for another year, we will be resuming our AWANA program.

Because children are important to God,  Mount Vernon Baptist Church has an AWANA Club ministry that is open to children 3 years of age through 6th grade.


Club Meeting Times

For this 2016-2017 school year, our AWANA ministry will meet Wednesday evenings at 6:45 PM – 8:15 PM.

What is AWANA?

AWANA is a ministry that reaches children  with the gospel of Christ and trains them to serve God.

The name “AWANA” is an acronym that stands for … Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed

As Paul instructs Timothy in II Timothy 2:15:

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

Who is AWANA for?

Everyone!  This includes children, teens, and adults.


Each Club Meeting Includes Three Components :

1 Game Time – Team competition takes place in our unique circle games, providing maximum opportunity for children to get involved no matter their athletic ability.

2 Handbook Time – Kids work one on one with a trained leader to finish assignments in their curriculum materials. Awana emphasizes memorizing and understanding key Bible verses that teach children how to know and follow God. A series of awards reward their achievements at every level.

3 Council Time – Kids and leaders gather together for singing and practical Bible messages.
