New “Fast Track” Disciple Bible Study of The New Testament Begins January 7th

Begins Sunday, January 7, 2018

The Disciple Fast Track study of the New Testament will begin on Sunday, January 7th. It is a focused study of the New Testament for twelve weeks. Rev. C. Kay Fuino and Mike Fuino will lead the study. The New Testament class will begin in January and finish just before Easter. Class meetings will take place on Sunday evenings from 5 to 6:30 p.m. It is not a requirement to complete the Disciple Fast Track Old Testament section before beginning the New Testament section.

The new format for Disciple Bible Study is perfect for busy people. It uses much of the content of the original Disciple Bible Study, a small group study that has made a difference in thousands of lives since 1987. The class time and study time have been adjusted to fit our busy lives today.

The cost for each of the study guides is $20 in paperback and a Kindle edition is also available. You will also want to have a study Bible to use for the class. If you need a new study Bible you may want to consider the Common English Bible translation Study Bible available through Cokesbury. Please call the church and register with our church receptionist Tracy Brinker for class to begin January 7th. Tracy will need to know if you need child care and a participant book or if you plan to download the book.

For more information please contact Rev. C. Kay Fuino by e-mail at ckfuino@duluthumc.org or call 770-476-3776, ext. 117. I want to encourage you to take time to study the scriptures to enhance your relationship with God, Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Everyone can benefit from the principles taught in Financial Peace University. This class works for those that are struggling with money as well as those who are doing okay but want to learn how to manage their money better.

Visit the Crossroads Sunday School Class

Sunday mornings; 11 am in room F-151

The Crossroads Sunday School Class (formerly the Agape Class) is a class generally geared toward adults -- single, married, and married with children -- ages 20’s through early 40’s, but all are welcomed. Our focus is Bible study and family social time. The initial class approach will be a deeper dive into one or more of the scripture passages from the services each Sunday, allowing everyone the greatest possible flexibility to drop in at any time without feeling behind.

The Crossroads Class meets at 11:00 a.m. in room F-151, located on the 1st floor of the Family Life Center. We hope you’ll join us in making the Crossroads Class something that is spiritually and socially fulfilling.
