We began our AWANA program about 5 years ago. We started off with about 6 children and now average over 80 children that attend our church for AWANA each Wednesday. So what is AWANA? It is a program that helps children from ages 3-17 learn more about God and His Word. There are 5 school grade groups that make up AWANA. The five groups are: Cubbies (3-Pre-K), Sparks (Kindergarden - 2nd grade), TnT (3-5th grade), TREK (middle school) and Truth Trackers (high school).
AWANA follows the school calendar. We meet for AWANA every Wednesday from 6-7:30 p.m.
We currently have 3 vans that run different routes to pick up and drop off children whose parents do not have the means to do so.
Every Wednesday each group meets together for prayer, eats a small meal, and works on their designated Bible study. We also allow some time to play some games.
Current AWANA leaders:
AWANA Administrators: Bryan and Krista Grigg
Food Administrator: Kanda Barnes
Attendance Coordinator: Amy Lady
Recreation: Emily Breedlove

Gospel To Willy Wood, Guatemala
Our church left for Guatemala for the very first time in June and we are pleased to say that we have fallen in love with the people there. The main purpose for this mission trip was to spread the Gospel by going door to door and by teaming up with a local baptist pastor and his church to help with VBS. As we spent more time there we noticed many needs and many ways we could help the people of Willy Wood. Alongside the local pastor we hope to continually help the town of Willy Wood by planting a church, provide spiritual and physical needs, and grow in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
