The Great Canadian Bible Study
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!
2020’s study is The Woman Who Was Known. 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.
We will continue to support vulnerable children in Bolivia with the funds we raise through Great Canadian Bible Study; projects such as Jireh and Casa de la Amistad. Both these projects are overseen by Canadian Baptist Ministries.
Did You Know?
Between 2014 – 2017, Baptist women across Canada raised $41,000 for literacy classes in Rwanda doing the Great Canadian Bible Study!
Over 2,300 women were helped through these classes that were overseen and run by CBM and their ministry partner in Rwanda.
Since 2007, Baptist women across Canada who’ve participated in the Great Canadian Bible Study 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.
And now, your donations in 2020 will support vulnerable children in Bolivia.
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.
“In this encounter found in the Gospel of Luke, we have three individuals who know some things about one another and make decisions on how they will act toward the other based on what they think they know. The goal of this study is to learn better ways that we can see others with the eyes of Jesus, rather than our own set of values and preconceived ideals.
“We comfort in the realization that we are each fully known, deeply loved and mercifully forgiven by our Creator and our response of gratitude and worship will better enable us to extend that love to others.”
