AWANA is a national children’s ministry and Berea holds a local AWANA club in the Family Life Center on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm for children ages 3 through the 6th grade. This program is dedicated to fun, games, Bible teaching, and Bible memorization that helps strengthen children’s Christian character development.

The time involves teaching from God’s word, an interactive and engaging game time, and dedicated time for memorizing various Bible verses. Children are taught what different Bible passages and stories mean and leaders help children grow spiritually through their new understanding and application of the Bible.

Character development is an important facet of the AWANA ministry. While leaders naturally desire for children to learn biblical truths each Wednesday evening, they also want the truths to make practical differences in the children’s lives. Cultivating Christian character through making right behavioral choices, eventually adopting a biblical world-and-life view, and learning to think correctly about attitude-development are examples of how AWANA helps Berea children grow spiritually.

Clubbers who are in Trek will participate in a time of service in another AWANA area each week, a game/activity time, Scripture memory, and a Bible lesson.

AWANA's co-commanders are Pastor Mark Gainer and Jay Kitchen. If you have specific questions, please contact the Berea church office either at or by calling 937-399-9808.
