Mount Vernon Baptist schedules AWANA children’s program
Mount Vernon Baptist Church, 2150 Mount Vernon Road, Hurricane, is accepting registrations for the AWANA children's program at the church.
Registrations begin at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28. Parents are requested to take their children to the west entrance of the church to the Fellowship Hall and follow directional signs. Parents are invited to remain for Bible study and prayer.
The first AWANA session will begin at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4. The program is for children age 2 through sixth grade.
AWANA is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and is based on the Bible verse from Second Timothy, Chapter 2, Verse 15.
It is a ministry "that helps parents and churches raise children and youth to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ," said the Rev. David White, associate pastor of outreach and discipleship.
