We believe that this will be an awesome year at Awana and we are excited to see that your children will be a part of it.

Please note that the t-shirts for all clubs have NOT changed from those used last year. You will need to purchase a new t-shirt for the current year ONLY if your child is new to the club.

Additionally, if you were referred by a friend and are new to our Awana program AND if your child has never participated in an Awana program before, please note the following order instructions:
Order the HangGlider Book if your child is in Kindergarten, 1st, or 2nd Grade.

All clubbers (grades 3-6) will be in the same books this year; Evidence of Grace. All T&T clubbers will need to purchase the new book.

**One last note for parents of returning clubbers:
If your child is in going into 1st, or 2nd grade and did not complete last year’s book, you have the option of having your child continue in last year’s book until finished or purchasing the book associated with their current grade. However, parents of children in Cubbies, T&T, Trek, or Journey clubs will need to purchase the current year book as all grades within these clubs use the same book for all clubbers.

Please don’t hesitate to e-mail with any questions or concerns:

Children’s Church

FBC offers Children’s Church during the worship hour for grades K-5th.
The children are in the worship service for the first part of it and then are dismissed just prior to the sermon. The children’s church material is Bible based and brings a truth from God’s word that will be instrumental in building a strong foundation in their faith.
During weeks with Communion (usually the first Sunday of the month), children are dismissed after Communion so that they may participate if appropriate.

FBC Sunday School

Sunday School (Sundays at 9:15 a.m.)

God desires that his people be sanctified or set apart for him. He wants us to grow up into spiritual maturity. God is glorified when his people are transformed into the image of his precious Son. God has charged and equipped the church in order to achieve this goal.

FBC sees Sunday School as a vital means to growing up into spiritual maturity. We have a bible based Sunday school curriculum from ages 3 years old through adult. We believe that it is only through being trained in truth that we can continue to grow and be transformed into the image of His son.

AWANA – Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed


Wednesdays, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM from September through May.

Awana_Logo1AWANA is a fun way for kids to learn about God through the Bible. Each age group has its own age-appropriate AWANA club:

§  Ages 3-4 (Cubbies)

§  K – 2nd  (Sparks)

§  3rd – 6th  Grade (Truth & Training)

§  7th – 8th (Trek)

§  9th – 12th (Journey)

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.

Our Leaders – 

Our AWANA Commander is Jeffry L. Roberson and his wife Mary Ellen Roberson.  The also direct the TREK Club which is Jr. High age (7th and 8th grade).
