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!
2015’s study is The Legacy of Eve. We hope you’ll gather some women together and try it for yourself. Many groups choose a date in January but it’s not required.
Since 2012, Baptist women across Canada who’ve participated in this project have raised over $24,000 to assist victims of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Your offerings have been used for medical assistance, trauma counselling, workshops to reduce discrimination of victims and their children, and to support microcredit programs to get survivors started on a new life.
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.
