Merrill Wesleyan Church began using AWANA for its Sunday night children’s programing in September of 2015. The curriculum was found to be solid, Bible-based, and easy to teach. The children respond well to the materials and are engaged as the curriculum is presented.
AWANA Club at MWC runs from September through April and meets on Sunday nights from 5:30 -7 PM. Each year an AWANA calendar is made available to students & parents.
