AWANA program: Kids matter to God
At Centennial Baptist Church, we believe that the Bible is God’s inspired, infallible, inerrant Word to His people. It’s a letter from God in which He reveals Himself to us and shows His love for us. It’s a place where we can go to find truth, a place we can turn to for answers and a place we can learn what God desires for us to be and intends for us to do, in this world that He has created for us.
At Centennial, we also believe that it is never too early to begin to learn His precious Word and that is exactly what the Centennial AWANA program is centered around. Teaching children what God’s Word means to us and how it applies to our lives, is done through fun, recreation, scripture memorization, and a prize earning system.
AWANA stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” and is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. At Centennial, it is a program for 2-year-olds through fifth grade. We meet every Wednesday evening, from 6:15 - 8:00 pm at Centennial Baptist Church, 5321 Brownwood Road, Rutledge, Ga. This program is offered at no cost to you. Also, bus transportation is available in the Rutledge downtown area. Better yet, if you bring your children to join us in AWANA, there are also classes and ministry opportunities for adults and youth, with a nursery provided, as well! There is something for everyone!
As Centennial Baptist Church AWANA Commander, I invite you and your children to come and learn what God desires for your life.
