What is Awana?

The name Awana is an acronym that stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. It is taken from the Bible in II Timothy 2:15 which reads, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” (KJV) As one of the fastest growing youth organizations, Awana provides a local church-sponsored program for boys and girls of all ages. Our hope is that all club members will develop faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and then build on that foundation to become obedient servants of God.

Why Do Children Enjoy Awana?

Awana clubs are loaded with exciting activities! Three segments (game time, handbook time and council time) provide start-to-finish adventure. And there is a purpose in each.

Our Club

Fredericktowne Baptist Church is one of the few churches in the immediate area that offer clubs for children of all ages; Preschool through high school.

Every year we celebrate the achievements all of our clubbers with a closing ceremony. It is a time of great anticipation and joy as each individual child is recognized for his or her achievement in the program.

Many of our clubbers graduate from the program earning their Citation Award.  This is the highest award that can be earned in Awana.  This is given to high school seniors who complete 10 years-worth of Awana curriculum – third through 12th grade.
