5. Adult Bible Study Options*
Book Cost is $8.00 each. Four courses are available:

(1) “I’ll Take the High Road”
Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. Sept. 28 to Dec. 14, 2021
Taught by Pastor Brian Grant by ZOOM

The road to heaven begins at the cross, the place where Jesus died to bring us to God. But as a believer, how do you measure your progress along the Christian pathway? How do you know you’re growing in your spiritual faith? This 12-chapter course will guide you in answering these questions.

(2) “Perfect Person, Perfect Work”
Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m. Sept. 28 to Dec. 14, 2021
Taught by Pastor George Peters at GCA and by ZOOM

God only saves man on the basis of Christ’s work on the cross. Therefore, it is important to understand the Person and work of Jesus Christ. This course is designed to give you an overview of what the Bible teaches about Jesus; the fact that He is God, His life, His death, His resurrection and that He is Lord of all.

(3) “Experiencing God, Part 2”
Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. Sept. 28 to Dec. 14, 2021
Taught by Dr. Raphael Thomas by ZOOM

For more than 15 years, Experiencing God has been showing Christians how to know God intimately while encouraging them to step out in faith. Part 2 continues to show you how to deepen your personal relationship with God and discover your special place in His Kingdom.

(4) “Abigail: Living with the Difficult People in Your Life Bible Study” (For Ladies Only)
Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. Sept. 29 to Dec. 15, 2021
Taught by various GCA ladies by ZOOM

Each of us can point to someone who makes life complicated. It could be a coworker, a family member or even a spouse. Sometimes it’s easy to let circumstances like this control our thoughts, words and actions. We react rather than act, causing frustration at ourselves and the situation. Learn from the lessons of Abigail as, through the Bible, she shows the better way. The way of wisdom. The way of hope. The way of Jesus.
