Disciple Bible Study
Welcome to the Disciple Bible Study Ministry at Cokesbury United Methodist Church. All phases of Disciple are offered to our congregation and community. Please come and make yourself at home.
The Disciple Bible Study program has been an active and important feature of the Christian Education ministry at Cokesbury UMC for almost 10 years. Disciple emphasizes disciplined reading of and listening to the Scriptures. It results in biblically nourished persons committed to live as disciples. Students use both the Bible and the study manual to complete daily reading assignments, generally about 30 minutes of reading per day. The study book also includes commentary and questions for reflection and response. Weekly meetings of 1 hour, Bi-Weekly meetings on 1 hour, or Weekly meetings of 2 – 2 ½ hours include video presentations with commentary by some of today’s leading Biblical scholars, class discussion and prayer.
Each phase of Disciple emphasizes a unique aspect of the Bible and the Christian faith.
All classes are facilitated by clergy or trained lay facilitators.
Disciple I – Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
Disciple I is a 34 week study (17 weeks with the Hebrew Scriptures and 17 weeks with the New Testament) utilizing a theme each week to organize the study and reflection. In Disciple I 85% of the entire Bible will be read. This class meets weekly for 2 ½ hours.
***** Disciple I is a prerequisite to all subsequent Disciple affiliated studies. *****
