Three courses are available:

(1)  The Believer’s Battle with Temptation 
Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m. March 23 to June 1, 2021
Taught by Pastor Brian Grant at GCA as well as by ZOOM

Temptation to sin is inevitable. Every believer is targeted by evil and confronted with temptation that comes in many ways. Understanding the principles in God’s Word and learning how we can resist temptation, and triumph over it, will give us the basic guide to spiritual self-defense.

(2)  Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. March 23 to June 1, 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. This study will show you how to deepen your personal relationship with God and discover your special place in His Kingdom.

(3)  Becoming a Woman of Strength (For Ladies Only)
Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. March 24 to June 2, 2021
Taught by various GCA ladies by ZOOM

When encountering the difficulties and obstacles of life, it is a comfort and blessing to be assured of God’s desire to strengthen and equip His children.  This Bible study will encourage you to depend on the Lord’s strength to commit, wait, seek, pray, serve, and persevere all through your life. Join us for a great time of fellowship and learning together as sisters in Christ.
