AWANA is an international, nondenominational, Bible centered youth organization that provides weekly clubs and programs for Kindergarten through Sixth Grade boys and girls. The acronym AWANA comes from the first letters of the phrase, “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)
AWANA at Springfield Baptist is made up of two clubs: SPARKS for the K-2nd grades and TRUTH AND TRAINING for the 3rd-6th Grades. These two clubs meet Friday nights from 7pm to 9pm. The typical club-meeting schedule looks like.
