“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15
*To keep all our children safe, we are following the Town of West Hartford mask mandate. All persons ages 2+ are required to wear a mask unless a disability, medical or behavioral condition prevents mask wearing. Thank you for working together so that we can continue our children’s programming.*
Calvary Church participates in Awana International Ministry. Awana is a Bible-centered youth ministry program that provides local churches with weekly clubs for children Age 3 through Sixth Grade.
Why Awana? “Because Kids Matter to God.”
Calvary Church’s well established Awana program is used to reach out to children in their community. Our goal is to reach boys and girls, and their families, with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. The acronym comes from 2 Timothy 2:15 Awana and stands for:
Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed
The Awana organization leads youth worldwide to know, love and serve Christ
Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community. As a ministry leader for 60 years, Awana is making an impact. A recent national survey found Awana to be as important to our alumni’s spiritual foundation as all other church activities combined. Among alumni who participated in our programs for at least six years, 92.7 percent still attend church at least weekly as adults!
Each week, more than one million kids ages 2 to 18 participate in Awana. Over 12,000 churches in the U.S. and more than 8,000 internationally run Awana programs that change young lives through biblical truth.
