The Great Canadian Bible Study

The 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!

2023’s study focuses on Deborah and Jael.  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.

The Project:

We will continue to support the Eagles’ Wings project in Cochabamba, Bolivia.  This project is 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 2022 will continue to support families and 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.

“2023’s study features two notable women from the book of Judges. Deborah was a judge and prophetess—a significant leader known as “a mother in Israel.” Jael, though not an Israelite, used her wiles to kill an enemy of the Israelites. ( Join in the study to discuss whether we should consider her a role model or not!) Both women courageously took action, despite living in a culture where men normally led. I look forward to learning together with you from their fascinating stories as part of the 2023 Great Canadian Bible Study.”
