Long-term and Short-term Disciple Bible Study classes are an excellent way to learn more about the Bible and how to apply God’s Word to your daily lives. Disciple classes include daily readings of scripture and commentaries from various Christian authors. The class includes a video and discussion of the daily readings. The small group setting enables strong Christian relationships to be built between class members.

Long Terrm Studies include:

  • Disciple 1 – a prerequisite for any of the other Disciple studies. Disciple 1 goes through the entire Bible.
  • Disciple 2 – focuses on Genesis, Exodus, Luke and the book of Acts.
  • Disciple 3 – looks at the Prophets of the Old Testament and the letters of the Apostle Paul.
  • Disciple 4 – studies various writings in the Old Testament, the Gospel of John and the book of Revelation.
