Our desire is that you may freely enjoy the worship experience at Benton, knowing that your child is being safely cared for by our trained and loving volunteers. We also desire to ensure that your child's first impressions of church are positive ones.

AWANA: Wednesdays, 6:30pm - 8:05pm

What is AWANA? The acronym "AWANA" comes from 2 Timothy 2:15 - Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. AWANA is centered on the gospel. Bible memory is a key element of our curriculum. We use a complete and systematic approach for training kids from preschool to Grade 6 to know, love and serve Christ.

AWANA 2017-2018 started on September 13th of last year and runs through April of this year. Any child from age 3 to Grade 6 is welcome to join in the fun! More information for parents is available in our AWANA Parent Page.
