Could this be a great outreach opportunity for your church or women’s ministry?
English la versión española (Spanish) la version française (French) Chinese
Every year, Baptist women across Canada meet in small groups to do a pre-set Bible study that focuses on women from the Bible. Participants bring a small offering to support a joint project that lasts for three years. Great things happen!
2016’s study is Tamar – the Righteous. We hope you’ll gather some women together and try this study for yourself. Many groups choose a date in January but it’s not required.
In 2017, your offerings continue to help help Canadian Baptist Ministries and the Association of Baptist Churches of Rwanda (AEBR) to provide literacy classes for women.
- 50% of women living in AEBR communities are illiterate.
- The majority live on less than $1 per day.
- Girls must earn money as domestic workers to support their families.
- Their education is not a high priority.
Did You Know?
Since 2007, Baptist women across Canada who’ve participated in this project have raised tens of thousands of dollars to assist women and girls at risk in India and Africa. Your offerings have been used for school repairs, equipment purchases, school supplies, medical assistance, trauma counselling, workshops to reduce discrimination of victims and their children, and to support microcredit programs.
So, get the women in your church organized; book off one night and do the study. And remember to make your cheque out to Canadian Baptist Women of Ontario and Quebec, with GCBS written on the memo line.
