Kick-Off Night!
AWANA Starts on September 10th 2014 at 6pm.

   Welcome to the official Awana web site for Grace Baptist Church, Grand Forks North Dakota. Awana is a Wednesday evening Bible-centered program for children age 3 years through 6th grade that focuses on learning God’s Word in a fun atmosphere. Each week, Awana provides consistent, positive teaching and training that stresses strong moral and spiritual values. Our clubbers learn about the reality of God and the truth of the Bible.  

What we value:
  • We will glorify God and serve the body of Christ by committing ourselves to these values.
  • We proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ with clarity and urgency.
  • We commit to God’s Word as our guide and standard.
  • We treat all people as created and loved by God.
  • We maintain a servant heart in all we do.
  • We manage God’s resources with faithfulness and integrity.
  • We pursue excellence as unto the Lord.
Our Hope
That all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Vision:
To be a partner with parents and our community in an effort to ensure the opportunity for all children and youth to be evangelized and discipled in Christ.
Our Mission:
To work with our ministry supporters in creating and teaching our leaders and parents to evangelize and disciple children and youth for Christ.

An AWANA Evening consists of:
1.  Game Time
Every Awana meeting has a segment of fun team competition. Organized games get all of the children to participate, unleashing natural energy, a sense of enthusiasm, and an atmosphere of having fun.
2.  Handbook Time
Using achievement oriented learning segments, Awana training emphasizes the importance of God and His Word for sound living. Clubbers progress through workbooks at their own pace, and leaders meet with them individually to go over what they have learned.
3.  Council Time
 Council time begins with a group Bible lesson and is followed by awards and recognition for individual handbook progress.

A Note to Parents:
Week by week, your children will grow spiritually as they learn Bible verses. Experience shows that encouragement from a parent will make a big difference in the spiritual growth of your children. Please set aside time each week to help your children study their workbooks.

Our Leaders:
Please feel to speak to one of our directors or leaders for more information on Awana. We would be glad to have you observe an evening with us.
