The Barnesville Area Ministerial Association is pleased once again to offer the Free Swim and Lunch Program to families this summer. Beginning on Wednesday, June 6, 2012 and continuing each Wednesday through August 15, 2012, area residents may swim at the Barnesville Memorial Park Pool from 11 -11:45 a.m. and then are welcomed to the Bunting Shelter nearby for Christian devotions followed by lunch which is provided to all attending children at no cost to them.

BAMA will also hold its annual VBS in conjunction with the Free Swim and Lunch Program on Wednesday mornings on the following dates: June 20, 27, July 11, 18, and 25. The VBS will start at 9:30 and end around 12:15 after lunch is served.

There will be a free swim on July 4th, but no VBS will be held that week.

Following the final swim on August 17, Hands For the Master will provide the devotions in the form of a short puppet show featuring up-beat Christian music. Due to this program, lunch will be served a little later than usual, but will be worth the wait!

BAMA appreciates all the local merchants who are willing to support this ministry. The tentative lunch schedule is: June 6 - Foxs Pizza

June 13 - Wendys

June 20 - KFC

June 27 - Bobs Pizza & Sub Shop

July 4 - Dominos

July 11 - Subway

July 18 - Home Pizza
