DON’T MISS THIS
Membership classes are happening! MEMBERSHIP is more than calling Ada Bible Church your home. Being a member lets us formally align with what our church believes and how we strive to carry out God’s mission. Learn more and sign up for a class at adabible.org/membership.
This September, we are focusing on the value of sharing our SERVING. We are called to invest in others—that’s why we talk about it a lot at Ada Bible. We encourage you to think through your circles. Who could you encourage to use their gift to bless others? Curious about where to use your gifts to serve? Find a place to jump in and try at adabible.org/info/serving-needs.
GROW AS A LEADER
Did you know that Ada Bible Church offers a Leadership Development Program? Leadership requires many more skills today than just a few years ago. To give you these skills, we’ve formed the Leadership Development Program. This program is offered in conjunction with Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. CLICK HERE for more information. If you have any questions, email us at email@example.com. We hope to see you this year in the LDP.
