AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, taken from 2 Timothy 2:15:

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

Temple uses the AWANA literature and structure for our Wednesday night youth ministry. There are classes for kids of all ages. There is an emphesis on fun but the central theme of each AWANA meeting is the Word of God. The younger classes memorize Scripture while the teens recieve lessons on Christian doctrines.

AWANA begins at 6:45pm and ends at 8:00pm on Wednesdays and coincides with the school year.
