Attention Shoebox Shoppers!

In June we’re collecting TOYS for shoeboxes! Things like balls, marbles, yo-yos, coloring books, small baby dolls, stuffed animals, cars, trucks etc… are wonderful WOW items to include in our boxes. As you’re buying, please remember that toys need to fit into a shoebox with the lid closed. So for example, a deflated ball with an air pump would fit, but a large foam soccer ball probably wouldn’t.

Don’t forget to save your pocket change and turn it in to Konny Saner anytime!

Thank you, for your support of Operation Christmas Child all year round. Every box provides an opportunity for one more child to hear about Jesus!

RightNow Media

To sign up, or to encourage somebody else to sign up, refer them or go to our website. www.ainsworthfree.org On the lower right side of our homepage is a banner you can click on to get more information and get set up for FREE. RightNow Media is like the Netflix of Bible studies. There are thousands of videos for children, adults, singles, couples, and much more.


CaveQuest

June is rapidly approaching, which means it's time to transform Adventure Bay! This year's theme is CaveQuest, where all of our kiddos will encounter the light of Jesus. Can you help us decorate those hallways/classrooms into something dark and cavernous? Join us Tuesday, May 30th, from 9:00 am - noon and from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm and for the same time frames on Wednesday, May 31st, to help create an atmosphere for an incredibly memorable summer!


Making a Difference!

Can you commit a few hours to make a lasting difference? The children's ministry still needs a handful of adults willing to help with activities occasionally through the summer. Discipling "the least of these" with no need to be the only teacher in the room or the stress of prepping a lesson? Valuing our year-round teachers by giving them a Sabbath break from service? Why haven't you signed up already??
