Awana is for children from 3 years old up through 6th grade and meets Wednesday’s from 6:15-8:00 PM from September through April. Our purpose is to plant the seed of the Word of God in children so that they grow in genuine saving faith. This is done in a way that is engaging and fun for the children by incorporating games and materials written right at their level.
AWANA has been a staple ministry of FBC for many years. God has richly blessed many children through this ministry and we are richly blessed to serve in this program. Here is the who,what, when, where, and why for AWANA.
Who ~ AWANA is for school-aged children starting at age 3 (by September). AWANA is broken down like this:
• age 3 (by September) – age 5 are in Cubbies
• kindergarten – 2nd grade are in Sparks
• 3rd – 6th grade are in Truth & Training (T&T)
New students and parents are welcome to join anytime throughout the school year. Just come on a Wednesday evening during the school year and stop by the Welcome Table in the main entrance foyer for Awana registration, information, and a tour of the Awana program at FBC.
What ~ Time is divided three ways. There is a game time where kids release some energy and have some fun. In counsel time, children are encouraged and challenged from the Bible by one of our main teachers. Handbook time gives children a chance to work in their handbooks and recite memory verses to their listening leader.
When ~ Every Wednesday during the school year at 6:15pm. Please check our calendar for the actual start and end date, as well as other Wednesdays we don’t meet that are near holidays or other special events. Cancellation Policy – (414) 982-1258 TEXT @awanafbc to be notified for cancellations due to inclement weather.
Where ~ All AWANA ministry takes place at First Baptist Church located at 670 W Broadway Ave in Medford (next to Memorial Hospital).
Why ~ If we are going to have children who love God and others, we need to be purposeful in our attempt. Hundreds upon hundreds of people have begun life well through the AWANA ministry of First Baptist Church. Secondly, we adults could use some help. It is the parent’s responsibility to train children, but we need help. We want to offer that help through AWANA.
