Local church has great summer

Ada Baptist Temple is in the midst of a great summer. Mickey Hollars and Robert Eberle, pastors, attribute the success to several factors.

1. Adult Bible study classes — Tomas Chavez leads the Spanish speaking adults.  Robert Eberle leads a class which is studying “How to Have a Successful Marriage” and Mickey Hollars is doing a verse by verse study through the book of Romans.

2. Preaching services —  Caleb Prenevost leads congregational singing and adult choir. The five pianos, violin, drums and tambourine makes the song service exciting. Pastor Hollars has been teaching on Sunday evenings on Biblical Financial Principles and  Eberle has been teaching on Wednesday evenings on Grace.

Ada Baptist Temple invites the community to “Come Grow With Us.”

The church is located at 301 Napier St. For more information or transportation, phone the church office at 580-436-4546.
