Disciple Bible Study

Registration is now open for Disciple Bible Study Classes beginning in the fall!

Long term classes:

DISCIPLE 1: Becoming Disciples through Bible Study

This is the first in the DISCIPLE Bible Study series, and the prerequisite for all of the other classes.  It’s a 34 week journey through the Bible, studying the Old Testament in the first 17 weeks and the New Testament in the second 17 weeks. You will commit to spending about 45  minutes per day in reading and reflecting and meet weekly for 2 and 1/2 hours; ultimately covering about 75% of the Bible during the course.

This the starting place for the journey. Cost is $60.

  • Wednesday mornings, 9:30 am – 12:00 noon., beginning August 23. – Register here.

Christian Believer

This DISCIPLE Second Generation study is open to anyone who has completed two DISCIPLE classes.  Christian Believer studies Christian doctrine – the basic teachings of the church – in the belief that informed believing leads to committed discipleship.  Readings include Scripture passages from the Old and New Testaments, and writings of early and modern church leaders.

This is an advanced study for people who want to go a bit deeper in their understanding of what the church teaches. Cost is $70.

DISCIPLE II – Into the Word, Into the World

Open to anyone who has completed DISCIPLE 1, this 32 week study offers a deeper examination of Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Acts.  You will hear what God has to say to you through the Bible and be guided in your particular ministry in the world, approaching all experiences of life as opportunities for faithful witness and service. Cost is $60.

 

Jesus in the Gospels

This DISCIPLE second generation study is open to anyone who has completed three DISCIPLE classes.  It’s a 30 week study that concentrates on the portraits of Jesus from the four gospels.  Study the name, the places, and the people, and encounter the Jesus who is both hard to ignore and hard to control–a commanding, morally compelling figure as portrayed in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

This is an advanced study for people who take critical scholarship seriously and who have skill in comparing and analyzing Gospel passages along with biblical knowledge to place New Testament passages about Jesus into their Old Testament context.  Cost is $70.

Wednesday evenings, 6:30 – 9:00 pm.  Register here.
