THREE THINGS TO KNOW
DON’T MISS THIS
Looking for a way to serve this summer? Join others for our LOCAL MISSIONS SHORT-TERM SMALL GROUP to serve community ministries. Groups are six weeks long. We have various projects available, and you’ll work directly with Grand Rapids area ministries. Sign up at adabible.org/info/upcoming-events.
This June, we’re focusing on CARE. We believe care is a core part of sharing life with others. The Bible calls us to care for one another, and Ada Bible small groups are one of the best places for receiving and extending care at our church. Discuss what it means to care for each other.
