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

(1) The Book of Judges
Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m. Sept. 26 to Dec. 12, 2023
Taught by Dr. Raphael Thomas at GCA and by ZOOM

Before the Israelites entered the promised land, they were given clear instructions from God. If obeyed, these laws would bring blessing. If disobeyed, the result would be judgement and oppression. Judges is a history clearly showing these two promises to be true. The sad history of the Israelites serves to warn us today of the dangers of compromise and to encourage us with examples of individuals who did trust God and obey Him.

(2) The Book of Daniel
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 26 to Dec. 12, 2023
Taught by Pastor Brian Grant by ZOOM

This book is both biographic and prophetic in describing the events of Daniel’s life as well as the visions of future world empires and the end of the age. It will help you discern the problems of interpretation that can often cause confusion. A faithful study of the 12 chapters will reward you with an increased understanding and love for God’s Word and the coming glorious King.

(3) The Letter to the Galatians 
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 26 to Dec. 12, 2023
Taught by Pastor George Peters by ZOOM

“Do this. Don’t do that.” Legalism is nothing new, but there is always a need to understand its harmful impact on the simple gospel message that salvation is a free gift from God. By studying Galatians, you will not only gain a firm hold on the way by which we become acceptable to God, but you will also recognize its practical relevance for daily life.

(4) Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds (For Ladies Only)
Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. Sept. 27 to Dec. 13, 2023
Taught by various GCA ladies by ZOOM

When you consider studying God’s Word, do you wonder where to begin? Does the lack of time and past frustrations discourage you? Women of the Word has helped countless women with a clear and concise plan they can use every time they open their Bible. This book will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.
