As we pursue Jesus together through Holiness of Heart and Holiness of Life, the Disciple Bible Studies link worship, devotion, compassion and justice together in an in depth, small group, spiritual formation opportunity that is both intentional and life-giving.

Disciple II: Into the Word Into the World is the second study in the four-phase Disciple program and is prepared for those who are graduates of Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study. In Disciple II participants are offered a deeper exploration into Genesis/Exodus in the first semester and Luke/Acts in the second semester. This study proclaims the transforming power of Scripture while teaching Bible study skills that take participants deeper into the Scripture. The importance of keeping Bible study related to witness is reinforced while participants are encouraged to practice spiritual disciplines arising out of Scripture for the purpose of changing habits and transforming lives. The study also emphasizes the rhythm of coming to God and going for God, of being in the Word and in the world individually and corporately. This study understands the growing Christian as under discipline in community and in ministry to the world. Disciple: Into the Word Into the World approaches all experiences of life as opportunities for faithful witness and service. Every lesson of this 32-week study, readers make decisions about how they will respond to Scripture in terms of ministry in the world. Each week persons will be guided in experiencing the gift of Sabbath rest and renewal.

If you are a graduate of Disciple I, no matter how long ago, please consider diving deeper into the word and into the world through the connection of this Disciple II covenant group. Disciple II will begin with orientation on Tuesday evening, August 13 in Room 111 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Class starts the next week, Tuesday evening, August 20th, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
