First Baptist moves children’s ministry online

LOCK HAVEN — First Baptist Church of Lock Haven is delaying the start of their school year Wednesday night AWANA children’s program.

Pastor Doug Packard said, “We hope to begin in late October or November. Until then we are hosting part of our Awana program online. Our webpage at www.fbclockhaven.com has a dedicated Awana page where children can find video lessons, printable activities and scripture memory encouragements.”

AWANA is an acrostic standing for Approved Workers Are Not Ashamed from the heart of of a Bible verse in 2nd Timothy 2:15. First Baptist has hosted this local Awana program on Wednesday evenings since 1996. AWANA began in the Chicago area under the leadership of Lance Latham in 1949.

Over 50,000 AWANA clubs now exist in over 120 countries — reaching over 4 million children each week.

“All families are welcome. We have many children whose families actually attend a church other than First Baptist. Part of interacting with families during this delay will be to send out email updates,” Packard said.

If you would like to have your child involved please send an email to fbclockhavenpa@gmail.com or call the church office at 570-748-3744.
