faith-cc-logoAre you missing out on Bible study because of your schedule? Does your travel keep you from committing to a weekly class meeting? DISCIPLE Online might be right for you.

All you need for the course are:

  • high speed internet access
  • a red DISCIPLE study manual (search for “447208”, which will take you to the correct manual)
  • a microphone and earphones or headset
  • an adventurous spirit and desire to study the Bible in a new way!

Participants will do their daily reading and reflection with their manual on their own. Assignments for weekly group work will include responding to questions on a group discussion board along with prayer requests and written prayer petitions. Each week, a short review of the week’s scriptures by DISCIPLE author Bishop Richard Wilke will be presented online for participants to watch. These will lead into key questions for weekly discussion.  Every week, we’ll have a live session online (approximately 1 – 1.5 hours long) to walk the group through more discussion, exercises, and time for prayer together.

This group is offered for members of and those associated with Faith Community Church in Itasca, Illinois.  Participants must covenant together to study the scripture faithfully for the duration of the course (34 weeks) and participate in weekly live sessions on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM, CST.
