CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

 

EQUIP IN MARCH

Look out for these classes:

How to Read the Bible 

SUN 4 & 11 MAR |11.00 AM | ROOM 310

Reading the Bible is a key habit for Christians, but it is ironically also one of the greatest struggles we face. How do we read the Bible? Do you need to be an expert to do it, or is it something we can actually read for ourselves? How do we get excited about reading God's word? Join us to find out! 

 

The Church

SAT 24 MAR | 9.00 AM – 1.00 PM | ROOM 310

The church is central in God’s plan to display his glory among the nations. Because the church matters to God, we need to hear what His Word says about the church. How do we live together as God’s people? Come find out! All are welcome, whether you are thinking of becoming a GBC member, a new member, or a long-time member.
