Disciple Bible Study
Disciple Bible Study is transformative. The 34 week study is incredibly effective in shaping lives through interaction with the Word of God and each other. I hope to have enough people to sign up for this study so that we have two classes, on Sunday afternoons from 5:00-7:00 p.m., and on Wednesday evening. We will meet this Sunday, August 18 at 5:00 p.m. to form classes. This session is designed to give you the information you need to make this deep commitment. Please email Pastor Paul at  pthompson@wnccumc.net  to express your interest in learning more.

Required Materials: Disciple I Study Manual
