What is AWANA?
AWANA stands for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.” AWANA is known for leading kids worldwide to know, love, and serve Christ. For over 60 years, AWANA has offered a proven approach of sharing Jesus with children and their communities. Among alumni who have participated in AWANA for at least six years, 92.7% still attend church as adults. Plant City’s First Baptist church is proud to offer the AWANA program for children two years of age to sixth grade.

Awana Volunteers - Your child’s registration fee is waived. We do ask that you still pay for books and uniforms as needed.
Some children may not need a new book or uniform if they are still in the same club as last year. Please see us to determine if your child falls into this category (please note: T&T changed their book and uniform from last year so all 3rd and 4th graders will need the new version).
If there is a financial difficulty, contact Bill Bender at 813-752-4104 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A payment schedule may be arranged and scholarships are generously available for those in need. Please never allow money to stand in the way of your child’s spiritual development.
How do I register my child?

Can I volunteer?
Yes!!! AWANA is run by volunteers and many willing adults are needed. Volunteers help with games, listen to children recite Bible verses, lead the songs and drama, help with set up and clean up, substitute, pray or assist with special events. Parents that volunteer as AWANA directors and leaders get their child’s registration fee waived.
