AWANA Works!

As a ministry leader for 70 years, 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!

AWANA Families, What a privilege it is to serve your children year after year. There is no greater service in the kingdom of God than ministering to the children and teens of today. There is great joy in leading them to Christ and even greater delight in training them to be disciples of Christ with an unwavering faith and the willingness to face tomorrow with the resolution that apart from Christ we are nothing!

So, we ask you today, are you ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with us and train up tomorrow’s future leaders? Will you broaden your commitment to your children and join us in serving in this great ministry? Now is the time to act, because tomorrow will be the beginning of a new page in the history of God’s work.

God Bless You,
Michael and Debra Sims
