The Greater First Church of Baker, LA will launch its Small Group Bible Study Communities Ministry where interested persons, to include members of GFC along with guests, relatives, friends and neighbors from the community, gather in the homes of members who serve as hosts in a small group informal setting. Meetings will take place simultaneously so that interested persons can choose to attend based upon their real time life schedules, location and travel needs. Meetings focusing on the Classical Inward, Outward and Corporate Spiritual Disciplines will be conducted by competent Bible Study Facilitators trained and led by Pastor Anthony Kelley.
