Adult Bible Classes

During the Sunday morning worship services and Wednesday evenings (WED), Grace provides equipping, teaching, and discipleship opportunities in the Adult Bible Class ministry at the GBC facility. Because of changes to the GBC facilities due to building expansion, some classes are delayed until the new East Wing can be fully occupied.
