For over six decades, the Lord has used the ministry of Awana to reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world. While times and culture have changed, the gospel has not.  And our focus on the unchanging truth of the gospel drives the same vision we've held all these years to reach kids in every corner of the globe.  Rooted in the gospel, we walk boldly into the future to reach more kids, equip more leaders, and continue to be used by God to help change the world

Awana begins each Sunday evening at 5:15pm.  The evening has a little bit of everything to offer. The children have game time, snack time, large group lessons and small group time studying God's word.

Throughout the Awana season we have theme nights. These nights the children are given extra points if they come dressed as the theme of the evening or bring something for the theme night.  Examples of some are: Pirate Night, Backwards Night, Missions Night, Crazy Sock Night, 50's Night, etc.

Awana is a world-wide nonprofit ministry focused on providing Bible-based evangelism and discipleship solutions for ages 2-18. As the global leader in child and youth discipleship, Awana gives children the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus, no matter their background

Is there just one God? . . . Who is God? . . . What is God like? . . . Does God love me? . . . Can I know God?

Our kids grapple with questions like these every day. At Mystery Island, we’ll uncover the truth about our Creator God! There’s a sea of confusion about who God is and what he’s like, so we’ll track down the one true God and learn how amazing he is through the pages of Scripture.

Mystery Island VBS is packed with teaching that connects the Bible to the real world and gives kids a better understanding of our awe-inspiring Creator and the salvation he offers through Jesus Christ.

Each day, kids will learn more about one of God’s amazing attributes (great, almighty, ruler, Emmanuel, trustworthy) and how that applies to their lives.

Grab your sunscreen and get ready for a taste of paradise as you track down the one true God at Mystery Island!
