We began our AWANA program about 5 years ago. We started off with about 6 children and now average over 80 children that attend our church for AWANA each Wednesday. So what is AWANA? It is a program that helps children from ages 3-17 learn more about God and His Word. There are 5 school grade groups that make up AWANA. The five groups are: Cubbies (3-Pre-K), Sparks (Kindergarden - 2nd grade), TnT (3-5th grade), TREK (middle school) and Truth Trackers (high school).
AWANA follows the school calendar. We meet for AWANA every Wednesday from 6-7:30 p.m.
We currently have 3 vans that run different routes to pick up and drop off children whose parents do not have the means to do so.
Every Wednesday each group meets together for prayer, eats a small meal, and works on their designated Bible study. We also allow some time to play some games.
Current AWANA leaders:
AWANA Administrators: Bryan and Krista Grigg
Food Administrator: Kanda Barnes
Attendance Coordinator: Amy Lady
Recreation: Scott Wright

Gospel To Willy Wood, Guatemala
Our church left for Guatemala for the second time in June and we are pleased to say that the Lord provided for us to help the people of Willy Wood to build a church of their own where they can worship. We also helped with VBS and provided some medical care and medicines for those in need of it. Alongside the local pastor, we hope to continually help the town of Willy Wood.

Our 2016 trip to Willy Wood, Guatemala
This year in Willy Wood we did a basketball clinic along with a purity course for high school students in the morning, and then a women's Bible study in the afternoon. Through sponsors we were able to give away 65 basketballs and t-shirts for the students. We were also able to minister to individual needs. We praise God for what He is doing in this part of the world and we look forward in going again next year.
Here are some pictures of this year's trip.
