THREE THINGS TO KNOW
DON’T MISS THIS
This summer, we have many SERVING OPPORTUNITIES at Ada Bible and other local ministries. Visit adabible.info and click SERVE to find places to try out serving this summer.
This June, we’re focusing on CARE. We believe that care is a core part of sharing life with others. We are called to care for one another, and a small group is one of the best places for receiving and extending care here at Ada Bible. Discuss what it means to care for each other.
