The Awana Program has started at Immanuel Baptist Church, 500 West South St. every Wednesday night from 6:30-8 p.m. All children in the community aged 3 through 6th grade. What is Awana? Awana Clubs International is an evangelical ministry that provides

Bible-based evangelism and graded discipleship resources for children and teens. The name Awana is an acronym for “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed,” which comes from their key verse: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15, KJV). The goal of Awana is to “reach kids, equip leaders, and change the world” by making one disciple at a time.

Awana is a time-tested and trusted Christian ministry, But, as with any Bible study program or ministry, we encourage all participants to compare the teachings of Awana to what the Bible says (see Acts 17:10–15). If you are considering sending your children to a church’s Awana program, it is also wise to evaluate that church’s statement of faith and compare it to God’s Word.

Have you heard the term “The Trojan Way?” The Arcanum-Butler Local School District implemented The Trojan Way in an effort to provide clear, consistent expectations for all Prek-12 students. The Trojan Way represents excellence and how our district and those who make up our district represent our school and community. It is the belief that Arcanum-Butler Local Schools will provide the best school experience in our county and region for students to grow and learn in preparation for life. Our students will exhibit Trojan Pride and represent their families and our school in the classroom and in extra-curricular performances and competitions. The Trojan Way means High Academic Expectations & Achievement, a Set of Core Values, and a High Performing Staff! The Trojan Way will be present in all that we do and evident in the actions of our students and the actions of our staff.
