EQUIP IN APRIL

We have two classes in April to equip us to be disciples who make disciples. All are welcome, so please join us! 

1) DISCIPLE ONE ANOTHER | SUN 15, 22 APR |11.00 AM – 12.30 PM

Reading the Bible with someone else is one of the most encouraging ways we can serve one another. But how do we do it? This class will equip us with some easy-to-use skills to help us get started. We will go through Philippians together, applying these skills as we go along. 

2) MEN / WOMEN OF GRACE | SUN 29 APR | 11.00AM - 12.30PM

In this session, we will be exploring what the Bible says about marriage and how we should follow Jesus as husbands and wives. If you have any questions, please contact Ps Eugene (eugenelow@gracebaptistchurch.sg).
