AWANA Club, a ministry that teaches the word of God to children from 3 years old through middle school, is set to kick off at Delta First Baptist Church this month. The AWANA Club for ages 3 through the sixth grade will be starting on Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. weekly. AWANA Club teaches scripture to children and principles for daily living straight from the Bible.
For over 60 years AWANA has taught the Bible to children all over the world.
AWANA is not just for the kids -- adult leaders are encouraged to memorize and review the scripture each week. Young people enjoy challenging their leaders in memorizing the Bible! The leaders are role models and help children and youth in understanding the truth given in God's Word.
Come check out the AWANA Club in Delta at First Baptist Church, 1250 Pioneer Road, and see how your kids respond to the Bible, the chapel lessons and fun through games that build teamwork and character. Contact the church for more information at 874-3847 and also check out the AWANA website at awana.org or contact AWANA Commander Steve Grover at 874-9346.
