Equipping you as a follower and servant of Christ
Come join us for Grace Equipping each Sunday evening, from 6-7 PM, during the spring and fall semesters.
WHAT IS GRACE EQUIPPING?
Our vision at Grace Baptist is for you to be equipped to faithfully follow and serve God in every facet of your life, no matter your age or the calling He has placed on your life. That’s why we’ve set up Grace Equipping.
Grace Equipping is a ministry of Grace Baptist that will meet every Sunday evening at 6 PM during the spring and fall semesters. Each semester we will offer several classes, covering a wide variety of topics, from which you can choose. Some will be geared toward learning Scripture or a particular doctrine; others will be very hands on in nature, helping you learn how to live out a particular aspect of the Christian life. They all, however, are designed to equip you in your daily Christian life. Our goal with Grace Equipping is to help you be a growing disciple who in turn makes disciples of others.
When is Grace Equipping?
Grace Equipping meets on Sunday evenings at 6 PM during the fall and spring semesters. Usually classes will be from September through November in the fall and from January through April in the spring.
Why Grace Equipping?
There are many passages in the New Testament that tell us that one of the main tasks of the church and its leaders is to “equip the saints for the work of the ministry” (Eph 4:12). Grace Equipping will aid in your spiritual growth and effectiveness in ministering the Gospel to Somerset and beyond.
What classes are offered?
We have two kinds of classes that we offer: core classes and electives. Core classes are subjects that we believe are important for every Christian, and usually a couple of core classes will be offered each semester. Electives cover a wide variety of topics related to the Christian life. These are designed to equip you in every facet of life for being faithful as a disciple of Christ.
