AWANA meets Sunday nights from 5:00 to 7:00 PM between the months of September and April. It is designed for children from pk-4 to 4th grade. AWANA helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. The programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
AWANA is making an impact. A recent national survey found Awana to be as important to our alumni’s spiritual foundation as all other church activities combined. Among alumni who participated in our programs for at least six years, 92.7 percent still attend church at least weekly as adults!
Each week, more than 1.5 million kids ages 2 to 18 participate in Awana. Over 12,000 churches in the U.S. and more than 10,000 internationally run Awana programs that change young lives through biblical truth.
