The name AWANA comes from the Bible verse found in 2 Timothy 2:15 and stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.

​The Oak Grove Awana Clubs began in 1987 and continue a tradition of quality programs to teach grade school kids about Jesus Christ.

Our Goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him. And we have a lot of fun doing it. Our clubs meet on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30 during the school year.
