Disciple Bible Study

New Bethel is excited to offer this multi-faceted study.  Future groups will be formed, so let us know if you are interested!

DISCIPLE 1 Bible Study  

       This is a disciplined, 34-week study  of the Bible, Genesis – Revelation.  Studying both

       Old and New Testament, this study draws on the work of scholars, the personal Bible

       Reading and study of the participant, and group discussion to aid in understanding the

       Bible.  The Bible is the main text and each participant also uses a study manual. 

       The time commitment is 30 minutes of personal study a day, and two hours of class

       time together.  Watch for details of new session beginning in the Fall.
