Koala Bears


Hi, I’m Ashley Barrientes.  My husband, Frank, have been married for 8 years.  We live in Montevallo with our three children, Finley (4), Alicia (2) and Foster (5 months).  I grew up in Bible Baptist church and at the age of 6, at a VBS, I realized it was not enough to be part of a Christian family; I understood that I had to accept Jesus' free gift as the only solution for my sin problem.  From that moment, my parents encouraged me to attend many children’s programs which grounded me in my faith and challenged me. In high school, I attended camp at Word of Life Island, and saw the hopelessness of young people. I realized I wanted to help children find hope and peace before their teen years. I decided to attend the Word of Life Bible Institute in Schroon Lake New York. Since coming home, God has given me so many opportunities to minister to young people. In Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come unto me..." At Bible Baptist Church we believe in the importance of teaching our little ones about Jesus and His perfect plan of salvation.
This year, as we invest in your precious children I count it an honor and privilege to impart to them the truth of the gospel and the hope and peace it brings!
The Koala program is one we’ve put together especially for these eager 2 and 3 year old clubbers.  During club each week we will sing songs, do crafts, eat snacks (you can help with this if you like), tell Bible stories, memorize verses, and perfect playtime.  Children will be introduced to their colors, shapes, numbers and the alphabet.  They will be using glue, scissors, markers, paints, crayons and play dough.  Throughout the year we will focus on sharing, taking turns, patience, and listening skills. We will be using the ABC memory book from Scripture Memory Fellowship.  The cost of the book, bag and CD is $25.00; the set will be available to purchase from our secretary in the welcome area.  Please register your child at the link above so we can have a record of your child (This will streamline drop off on the first night).  
If you have any questions, which are not answered on this site, please feel free to contact me at alabamashley@hotmail.com or Frank Ashley Barrientes on Facebook.
Again, we look forward to an awesome year with your children!

Serving our Savior,
Ashley Barrientes
