All of our Disciple classes will gather online this year utilizing Zoom.
Disciple 1 provides a foundational overview of the Bible. Beginning with Genesis and continuing through Revelation, group members will read approximately 80% of the Bible in 24 weeks. Disciple 1 is great for those at any place in their faith journey.
Disciple 2 is a study of Genesis-Exodus and Luke-Acts. This study proclaims the transforming power of Scripture while teaching Bible study skills that take participants deeper into the Scripture. Each week you will encounter three spiritual disciplines, learn what they are, and how to engage those disciplines. Daily preparation is to read 3-5 chapters of the Bible each day. (Disciple 1 suggested prerequisite)
Disciple 3 examines the major and minor Old Testament prophets and the 13 Letters traditionally attributed to Paul. Several themes weave their way through the study; the call to remember, the call to repentance; the need for renewed vision, and the place of community. Classes meet for 24 weeks. (Disciple 1 suggested prerequisite)
Disciple 4 concentrates on the Old Testament writings, the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, James, Jude, and Revelation. Emphasis on the Psalms as Israel's hymnbook and prayer book leads naturally to an emphasis on worship in the study. Classes meet for 24 weeks. This class will use the traditional workbook on a 24 week schedule. (Disciple 1 suggested prerequisite)
Jesus in the Gospels digs deeply into the mission and message of Jesus through a detailed and comparative study of the Gospels. Study the name, the place and the people and a commanding, morally compelling figure as portrayed in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. (30 week study, Disciple 1 suggested prerequisite)
Christian Believer is a study of the classical doctrines of the Christian faith which includes God's providence, atonement, judgment and eternal life. This class blends together the reading of Scripture with reading classic Christian writings. (30 week study, Disciple 1 suggested prerequisite)
Each individual will need to register separately for each class. You will have the option to register another individual after your registration is complete.
The specific start date will vary for each class. Your leader will notify you of the exact date and additional details for your class.
