Equip is our Wednesday evening adult ministry that goes from September - April. A family dinner is served at the church from 5:30-6:45, classes for children and junior high & high school students begin at 6:30, and classes for adults begin at 6:45. The purpose of Equip is to teach and equip believers, from the Word of God, how to live out their faith in practical ways for God's glory both inside and outside the church.

Upcoming Class
Beginning May 15
Forerunners of the Faith
Pastor Steve Crawford | 6:45PM 

Have you ever wondered how we as the Body of Christ developed from the days of the early church of the New Testament to the present day? Beginning May 15th, please join us this summer on Wednesday evenings at 6:45pm for "Forerunners of the Faith" - a 14-session survey covering 2,000 years of Church History. Pastor Steve is excited to teach an overview of the history of the church, beginning with the Day of Pentecost leading up to the 21st Century. We trust you'll be encouraged as we study just how Christ has fulfilled His promise made in Matthew 16:18, that He "will build [His] church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." There is no homework for the class, but all participants are strongly encouraged to acquire the "Forerunners of the Faith" student workbook, which we will fill out in class. Come learn about your spiritual heritage and be encouraged by God's sovereign hand over history. See Pastor Steve with any questions!

Fight the Good Fight: A Study in 1 Timothy & II Timothy
Pastor Steve Crawford | 6:45pm | Worship Center

Every single Christian has been entrusted with precious stewardships given to us by our Lord. We have each been entrusted with a relationship with the living God, with the message of the Gospel and the teachings of the Scriptures, and with the gift of the local church. But how are we to care for these precious gifts that God has given us? How are we to grow in our relationship with God? How are we to faithfully proclaim the Gospel & the Word? And how are we to care for the local church as followers of Christ? The Apostle Paul answered all of these questions in his first letter to his "son in the faith," Timothy. In this letter, Paul charges Timothy to "fight the good fight" (1 Timothy 1:18). Join us on Wednesday evenings this year as we study 1 Timothy so that we too may learn to "fight the good fight." (This class is open for all ages.) 

Fundamentals of the Faith
Terry Drouhard | 6:45pm | Room 121-123

Note: This two semester class will begin in Chapter 5.

Fundamentals of the Faith has played a role in the spiritual growth of our congregation since 1995 at GBC, and for good reason. This 13-chapter study provides new believers with a rock-solid theological foundation. It helps more mature Christians sharpen their understanding of key doctrines that equip them for greater worship of the Lord, evangelism, and discipleship. Additionally, FOF fosters an environment that encourages interaction between those that attend and the teacher, often forming many lasting relationships. Of course, the power behind this curriculum is not in its format or the environment in which it is taught, but in the Word of God on which it is based.

Fundamentos de la Fe
Pastor Josué | 6:00 P. M. | Charis Small Group Room

Fundamentos de la Fe ha jugado un rol en el crecimiento espiritual de nuestra congregación desde 1995 en GBC. Este estudio de 13 capítulos provee un fundamento teológico sólido para los nuevos creyentes. Además, ayuda a los cristianos más maduros a comprender doctrinas clave para equiparlos para una mejor adoración al Señor, para el evangelismo y para el discipulado. Adicionalmente, FdF fomenta un ambiente que anima a la interacción entre aquellos que asisten y el maestro, logrando hacer relaciones duraderas a menudo. Por supuesto, el poder detrás de este plan de estudios no está en su formato ni en el ambiente en el que se enseña, sino que en la Palabra de Dios en la que se basa.

Outreach & Evangelism
Pastor Stephon Moore| 6:45pm | Room 208

The Evangelism Class will train you to clearly and understandably proclaim the gospel message. The manner in which you proclaim the gospel may vary—the message must not. God's Word is clear on what the gospel is and isn’t. Each lesson will help you think through the vital aspects of a God-centered message, while the Hands-On Evangelism and Apologetics" will provide practical applications to assist you. The goal of this class is to assist you in glorifying God by proclaiming the saving message of Jesus Christ and providing a defense for the hope that is within you! At the same time, it will equip to do understand why do we do Outreach Ministries at GBC and what is the biblical foundation for them.

You will need to purchase the following books from the Resource Center:
1) Grace Evangelism: Student Workbook
2) What Is the Gospel, by Greg Gilbert
