AWANA

AWANA stands for Approved Workers Are Not Ashamed, from 2 Timothy 2:15. 

AWANA at Neshaminy Valley Baptist Church meets Friday evenings from 6:45pm to 8:15pm, September through April. 

  • Sparks is for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade.
  • T&T (Truth and Training) is for students in grades 3rd through 6th grade.
  • We welcome teens who have graduated from T&T to continue as helpers and leaders.  We also invite all teens to join us Sunday evenings from 7pm to 8:45pm for our youth group, which continues to meet most weeks through the summer.  AWANA offers additional rewards for teens who wish to continue studying and memorizing God's Word via the Trek series (7th through 9th grade) and Journey series (10th through 12th grade).  Students completing these books are invited to receive their awards at our closing AWANA ceremony in April.
