BE DILIGENT TO PRESENT YOURSELF APPROVED TO GOD, A WORKER WHO DOES NOT NEED TO BE ASHAMED, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH. 2 TIMOTHY 2:15 NKJV
AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. It is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. The purpose of the AWANA ministry is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him. The AWANA ministry at Philadelphia Baptist Church works in unison with the other ministries at church to help your child learn about Jesus and to grow in Him.
