Here at Alma Bible Church we seek to be a positive influence in the town of Alma and its surrounding communities. We do this by running a number of programs that function week to week. We also accomplish this by being involved in some very special relationships, and by promoting special programs and events throughout the year.
A highlight of just some of these special programs and ministries includes the following:
Moms and Dads are busy and active. Providing full time care for children through the entire summer is a daunting task. Here at Alma we provide a week long Day Camp for children at no cost that runs every morning. The theme changes from one year to the next. In recent years we have done a “western theme”, a “tropical jungle” theme, an “island paradise” theme, and most recently a “science laboratory” theme. Details on this years SonShine Club are now available.
Here at Alma we have a desire to look out for and care for those who find themselves in difficult situations. Ladies who are facing the prospect of raising children alone are in need of special care, and loving counsel. As a result we are proud to be able to support organizations like Michael House. One way we do this is by joining with them in their Baby Bottle fund raising drive in the spring. To learn more about Michael House check out their website
Samaritans Purse – Operation Christmas Child
For the past few years, we at Alma have been working to collect shoeboxes full of gifts for young boys and girls that live in parts of the world that would otherwise not be able to enjoy Christmas.
Annual Corn Roast
Here at Alma we have developed an annual fall tradition of offering a free for all Corn Roast and BBQ. This has been our way of letting everyone know that we are not interested in being a private club. Instead we want to be good neighbors helping where we can, and giving back to those around us.
The annual Corn Roast is a time to enjoy free food, hot dogs, hamburgers corn, chips etc., lots of fun games, face painting, bouncy castle, cotton candy, and we often finish the night with a family movie that has been in the local theatres and or a display of fireworks.
We encourage you to join us this fall for our next Annual Corn Roast.
“Let’s Get Moving”
We are proud to be able to host the “Let’s Get Moving” program which is fully run and funded by the Early Years Centre which is part of the Community Resource Centre of North and Centre Wellington. This program runs on alternate Wednesdays from 9:30-11:00am.
If you have questions about this program, please feel free to contact the Ontario Early Years Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting their website at www.communityresourcecentre.org
