What is Awana?

For nearly 60 years, Awana has been a leader in children’s ministry, helping churches and parents worldwide raise children and youth to know, love and serve Christ. Originally based in the Chicago area, Awana is the only organization with fully integrated evangelism and discipleship programs for ages 3 to 18 that actively involve parents, church leaders and mentors. Each week, more than a million children and youth, 250,000 volunteers and 300-plus field staff take part in Awana in over 17,000 churches in the U.S. and internationally learn about the prayer, vision, mission and values of Awana. Awana works with churches from nearly 100 different denominations.

The founders of Awana derived the Awana name from the first letters of the phrase "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 of the Bible.

Morningside Baptist Church offers Cubbies (Pre-K), Sparks (K-2nd) and Truth and Training (3rd thru 6th grade) programs for boys and girls.

Awana Clubs meet Wednesday's @ 6:30 p.m. during the school year.
