Awana clubs meet from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays at Jamestown First Assembly.

Awana, which stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15), is an international Bible-centered youth organization. At Jamestown First Assembly, the Awana clubs ministry is a program for children 3-year-olds through 5th grade.

At each Awana Club meeting, the Gospel is presented in a way that each child can understand, no matter what age of the child.

The key to winning the battle against sin is to memorize Scripture and hide it in our hearts, says the Rev. Andrea Mathison. This is what the Awana program is all about. Awana strongly emphasizes memorizing the Bible to help people during the battles in life, so they can have a victorious life in Jesus.

For each student, there is a cost of $45 and this includes a uniform and a handbook. Anyone with questions about this discipleship program for kids is asked to contact Mathison at (701) 252-4092.
