2017–2018 theme

GOD RESTORES: He is making all things new!
Revelation 21:5 - He who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."

AWANA was built around the goal that through scripture-memory and discipleship kids would come to know, love, and serve God. Each year we emphasize one key attribute of God. We have focused on God's sovereignty, His GREAT Love, Faithfulness, His Praise Worthiness and His Protection. We believe God's purpose is to take broken people and a broken world and make them NEW and whole to spend eternity with Him.

HISTORY

Founded in 1941 as a weekly children’s ministry by Lance Latham and Art Rorheim of North Side Gospel Center in Chicago, AWANA has grown to now reaching more than 1.5 million children weekly in all 50 states through the help of over 400 thousand volunteers. In the U.S. alone it represents over 12,000 churches in 100 denominations. Clubs are also established in over 13,000 churches, schools, and orphanages in over 100 countries outside the U.S.

The founders of AWANA derived its name from the first letters of “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” as taken from the Bible in 2 Timothy 2:15:
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
