Four courses are available:

(1) Christ Loved the Church
Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m. September 27 to December 13, 2022
Taught by Pastor George Peters at GCA and by ZOOM

Today, the church is represented by a wide range of religious bodies throughout the world. But is this what is meant by “the church” in the New Testament? What is God’s view of the church? How was it originally structured and organized? How should it function in today’s society? Answers to these and other questions will be discussed.

(2) 1 Corinthians
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. September 27 to December 13, 2022
Taught by Pastor Brian Grant by ZOOM

This study is a verse-by-verse exposition dealing with practical instruction for the local church and individual believers. The subjects discussed include lawsuits among believers, the gift of tongues, women in the church, and marriage and divorce. Paul’s first letter to the believers in Corinth was originally written to focus on these issues which are still prevalent in today’s society.

(3) Sense and Nonsense About Prayer
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. September 27 to December 13, 2022
Taught by Dr. Raphael Thomas by ZOOM

This provocative course is designed to help us in the way we pray. We will come to see that prayer is a discipline of the Christian life that needs to be exercised according to biblical principles if it is to result in blessing. This course will help to maximize the impact of your prayer.

(4) Becoming a Woman of Freedom (For Ladies Only)
Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. September 28 to December 14, 2022
