Disciple Fast Track Bible Study Class

Coming in January 2023!

Disciple Bible Study — Fast Track

Old Testament, 12 Weeks

Starting with a one hour orientation meeting Tuesday, January 10, 2023, 7:00 p.m., in the Chapel:

Fast Track is a modification of the original Disciple program.  It will provide a thorough introduction to the Bible in one third less time from the original program.

Participants will be asked to read 20-30 minutes of the Bible daily and to spend 75 minutes in discussion in weekly sessions.

A five minute weekly DVD and questions from the workbook will be the basis for small and large group discussions.

The cost of the Fast Track, Old Testament workbook is $17 and can be purchased through Cokesbury or Amazon. If you have any questions about securing a workbook,  feel free to call Roger Cromwell, 734-335-7250.

Hopefully you will want to study Disciple Fast Track  —  New Testament starting in the fall of 2023!
