Every Saturday afternoon, the Lighthouse hosts an AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed) program. On average 40-50 children attend this program. A typical day starts off with games where the kids learn to break out of their shells and have fun. Games are followed up with group worship and dancing time as well as Bible story time. Once the group Bible story is finished, children break into their age-appropriate small groups where they discuss further in detail about the Bible story previously shared.
In small groups, children also spend time practicing and preforming their memory verses. Children can earn points from memorizing Bible verses, winning games, and participating in group discussion. These points can later be used at the AWANA Store where they can ‘purchase’ items like school supplies, toys, and snacks. After each AWANA, all attendees are fed a nutritious snack before they go home.
