AWANA is an acronym for the phrase "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed."  It is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 --Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  The goal of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.  Our goal at Lake Drive Baptist is and has always been to get as MUCH of God's Word, as DEEP as we can, into as MANY children's hearts as we can.  We believe that when you touch the heart of a child, you touch the heart of God.  That is one reason why we are here and why we do what we do.  AWANA is for children ages 2 through 5th grade.  We also provide a Nursery for babies. Our AWANA program is open to the entire community and meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm.  If you do not have a church that you call home, our doors at Lake Drive are wide open. Every One is Welcome.
