Everyone is welcome at Awaken!

Who are we?

Awaken Church is the Daughter of Morrow Gospel Church. We began in the summer of 2014 with the vision to “Wake up to Jesus and invite our neighbors into His light.”  We hope our gatherings feel casual and friendly to people who are new to church. (you won’t be forced to do something you don’t want to).

We are a friendly bunch of people. A mix of singles, students, families and grandparents. For some reason our church has attracted families with young children, so there is definitely a youthful energy in the air. We have people ages 1 to 75

More detail…

We believe in the importance of Prayer, Communion, Worship through song, Worship though hearing the Word of God preached, and Worship through offering our tithes. We worship God these ways every Sunday during our Worship and Teaching Service from 4:00-5:15pm.

We have coffee and treats (usually) after the service and then often share a meal some way. (don’t be surprised if someone invites you to come to Garbonzo’s after church on Sunday, they have a pretty wicked deal on Sundays)

Something for children?

Children from toddlers to Grade 5 can take part in our Awaken Kids program.

We care about what we teach our children. We want our kids to be able to learn about Jesus and the Bible so they can come to a place one day of having their own relationship with God.

The kids study the Bible together, play games, sing songs, dance around, eat snacks and build lifelong friendships. It’s a fun and safe place to learn the important truth of the Gospel.

755 St. Anne’s Road, south of Bishop Grandin.
