Disciple Bible Study

Disciple aims at transformation, not just information. Students use the Bible and the study manual to complete daily reading assignments, generally about 30 minutes of reading per day, and meet weekly for 2 – 2 ½ hours for discussion, videos, and prayer.  Classes are led by trained lay facilitators.  All students are required to have their own study Bible with commentary.  We recommend The New Interpreter’s Study Bible (NRSV) or New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha (NRSV). 

Please Note:  While it is required that Disciple I be completed first, the remaining Disciple Bible Study courses may be taken in any order.

DISCIPLE I

Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
This introduction to Disciple Bible Study is truly transformational. Each week, you will gather with a group of people who will support and challenge you as you grow in your relationship to God, Scripture, and classmates. Daily readings will take you through selections from the entire Bible. Disciple I is the prerequisite for all the other long-term classes.

Remember Who You Are
Exploring Old Testament prophets asks that we take a look at our present circumstances and realize how much our actions impact the world. And in the letters of Paul, you will find instruction, inspiration, and renewed vision. Along with your small group, you will grow to understand that being a person of faith means joining a long tradition of fellow Believers.  (32 weeks)

Under the Tree of Life
Sometimes known as “The Revelation Study,” this Disciple class will read Old Testament Writing in order to better understand the message and promise pictured in Revelation. Your group will seek to make sense of life’s experiences through the lens of this powerful text, and together, you will learn to live as community-strengthened Disciples.
