Long-Term Disciple Studies
Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
During the 34 week program, you will read scripture daily, about 70% of the Bible. At the weekly group sessions you will watch a brief video presentation related to that week's scripture lesson. Often these are scholars who have spent their whole lives studying a particular part of the Bible. You will share with one another your insights from the week's lessons, and deepen your understanding through discussions of how to apply to principles learned.

Disciple II: Into the Word, Into the World
Disciple II encourages us to listen to God's ongoing call for our lives through in-depth Bible study. The 32 week study concentrates on four books: Genesis, Exodus, Luke, and Acts (eight lessons on each book). A unique feature of this Disciple study is the use of the "basic resource library" for special assignments that provide additional historical, cultural, and geographical information.
You must have Disciple I before taking this class. View a sample lesson from Disciple II.
Disciple III: Remember Who You Are
Disciple III takes an in-depth look at the prophets and writings of Paul. We remember who we are as a community called by God.
Participants in this thirty-two-week study will read the major and minor Old Testament prophets, with the exception of Daniel, and will read the thirteen letters traditionally attributed to Paul. A unique feature of this Disciple study is the use in class meetings of maps and other resources for understanding the context of the writings.
Although you must have taken Disciple I, you do not need to take Disciple II before taking this class. View a sample lesson from Disciple III.
