Disciple is a commitment you make with yourself, God and others in the group to spend daily time reading the Bible and sharing insights, questions and your life with the group in a weekly meeting.  It sounds like a huge time commitment and I can tell you that all of us that started Disciple in the fall of 2020 had fears about that.  What we have found is that by honoring our commitment we have wanted to spend more time in the bible and more time with each other because it brings all of us JOY.  

Disciple is not going to be like a traditional bible study or a woman’s bible study.  You “teach” each other.  Yes, it is helpful to have some bible knowledge, but this group is about more than knowledge (and you will get a lot of that).  The bible is a living book that speaks to everyone that reads it.  The problem is that the bible is complex and many of us don’t listen/interpret well.  We need community to fully hear what God is saying to us.  This group became that community for those of us that made the leap of faith and signed on for Disciple last year.

The little details you may still wonder about……  when will the group meet?  We currently meet at noon on Saturdays – but depending upon interest and participants, we may also (or instead) meet on a weeknight.  Within reason, we will meet the needs of the people that want to make a commitment to participate.  You will spend approximately 30 minutes to an hour a day reading the bible and reflecting on what you read with the help of the Disciple Book.   You can be a new believer that feels like you know nothing (but believe me, you WILL be surprised at what you know) or you can be a life-long Episcopalian (and you might be surprised by what you DON’T know about the Bible.)  

We will start in early/mid-September 2021.
