THREE THINGS TO KNOW
DON’T MISS THIS
Worship Night is coming August 17. Join with others from Ada Bible for an extended time of prayer, God’s Word and worship. It’s a great opportunity to attend as a group. Please register at adabible.org/worshipnight.
This month we look at the group value of Relational Investments. This is all about sharing the love of Jesus with those we have a relationship with. One great way to do that is by inviting someone to join you at church. August is a great time to think about who you might invite to join you at church this fall. As a group, share one person you each want to invite and then begin praying for those people.
