New Disciple I Class for Adults
Tom Bolton is offering a study of the Disciple I course, starting May 13, in the Confirmation Room. Each chapter will be spread over two weeks, during the one hour Sunday School time. The class will last for approximately 68 weeks, and will meet weekly, except during holiday weekends. “We meet in the summers to keep the continuity and growth,” Tom says. There is about one hour of reading and journaling each week between classes. The course provides a solid introduction to all the books of the Bible.
The class will only be offered if 6 or more people sign up to join the class.
Please see Tom Bolton, or call him at 414-704-5478 to ask any questions.
Potential students should stop by the Confirmation Room on May 6, at 9:30, to get a book and additional information.
