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 Wives of David. 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?
Since 2007, thousands of 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 literacy programs, 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 2021 will continue to 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.
“Marriage is complicated at the best of times, but even more so in royal and polygamous marriages. It is not very easy for us to identify with the eight wives of king David nor to find a romantic love story in their midst.
In reading through the book of Kings this past spring, I became intrigued with three of David’s wives and their particular character traits within their stories, each one so different from the other.
In each woman, I believe we can see the essence of their character, both the good and the bad, woven into David’s story – a man after God’s own heart.”
