5. Adult Bible Study Options*
Four courses are available:

(1) God’s Blueprint for Your Marriage
Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m. March 21 to June 6, 2023
Taught by Pastor George Peters at GCA and by ZOOM

Family life is important to every generation. This practical course will provide fresh insight into the biblical foundation for marriage and family life, the roles of husband and wife in the home, and the role of parents in child-rearing and training. It provides insight into what the Bible tells us marriage and family life can and should be.

(2) Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. March 21 to June 6, 2023
Taught by Pastor Brian Grant by ZOOM

Rightly—”straight.” Dividing—”cut.” In other words, to discern correctly; to accurately understand God’s written revelation. This study will help you to gain insight into the differences between Jew, Gentile, and the Church of God, the two natures of the believer, the seven dispensations, and other doctrines that will enhance your appreciation of God’s Word and work.

(3) The Book of Acts
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. March 21 to June 6, 2023
Taught by Dr. Raphael Thomas by ZOOM

In some ways, like our summer study in Exodus, the Book of Acts is also the record of a journey through the wilderness. Learn how the Holy Spirit, working through the Apostles, takes the Church of Jesus Christ from its birth on the Day of Pentecost to maturity; fully fitted in form, doctrine and practice, to carry out its mission during the time of waiting for the Lord’s return. 

(4) A Look Within (For Ladies Only)
Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m.  March 22 to June 7, 2023
Taught by various GCA ladies by ZOOM

We are invited to take A Look Within our own heart by examining the lives of Bible women. The author, Faith Alvis Taylor, shows us how the personality and temperament of Eve, Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Dinah, Miriam, and others influenced their behavior. In this study we will learn the impact that thoughts, words, and deeds can have—for good or ill—on others now, and for generations to come. This study is for the women of this age as we meander through our daily challenges.
