Ages 4 – 4th Grade • Sunday evenings 6:00 – 7:30 pm
AWANA is TABC’s ministry to help families in the all-important task of training their children to love and serve God. Each meeting begins with Opening Square in the gym and then the children rotate by age group to stations for counsel time, handbook, and games/crafts. Through these activities, children learn God’s word and how to apply it to daily living. They practice godly habits in game time and students discover the joy and peace found in living God’s way. Throughout the year, AWANA hosts fun family nights and a Christmas program in December.
