"Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed"
614 W. Corbett Avenue, Swansboro, NC 28584
A Brief Description of Awana
For over 60 years Awana has partnered with parents and churches to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. The founders of Awana derived the Awana name from the first letters of “Approved workmen are not ashamed” as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15: “Be diligent to present yourself approved by God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Awana supports the Bible’s call for parents to lead in the spiritual development of their children by creating an opportunity for parents to get involved with their child’s discipleship during the week. The Awana curriculum works to instill five biblical character traits into the hearts of children. Clubs for older 2 year olds thru 6th grade develop a biblical foundation for faith based on respect for God, wisdom for His Word and grace in relationships. Middle school and high school clubs cultivate a sense of God’s destiny and perspective.
