What is AWANA?
AWANA stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" and is an international, non-denominational, Bible-centered youth ministry. The AWANA program aims to reach children and teenagers with the Gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. At First Baptist Church of Okemos, we are proud to host this event and provide an opportunity for children and families to connect and engage in faith-based activities.
The AWANA Grand Prix is a highlight of our church calendar and features:
