Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed

On behalf of your AWANA Director, Dave Weldon, welcome to First Baptist Gulfport's AWANA page! AWANA is based on 2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” As part of a worldwide ministry, kids don their uniforms to memorize scripture, play games and earn awards as they learn to love and serve the Lord. Awana offers a fun, proven approach for early evangelism and discipleship. Scripture-based programs and exciting games attract families, promote Bible literacy and help kids develop lifelong faith in Christ.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about AWANA.
