Disciple Bible study

Beginning in September, Pastor Brad is planning on leading 2 sessions of Disciple 1 Bible Study. Disciple 1 has been offered here at Wesley United Methodist Church before, but whether you have taken it before or not we welcome you to join the journey through the Bible with Pastor Brad. Using both material produced by Disciple as well as material from other sources, we will survey the Bible and grow in our Christian faith and life. This will be a 24 week journey (September through April) with 90 minute sessions.


We hope to offer two different classes this year. One class will be held Wednesday Nights 5:30PM - 7:00PM as a part of our Wednesday night ministry that begins with community dinner at 5PM. The other session will be offered on Thursday mornings 9:00AM -10:30AM. Childcare will be arranged if you need it. If you have questions or would like to sign up for one of the classes, please contact Pastor Brad (bshumaker@charlestonwesley.org or 217-649-0339). We really need a minimum of 10 people in each class to make the class work! Let’s journey together!
