Event Details Becoming Disciples through Bible Study
Date: 3/19/2013
Time: 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Location: Franconia United Methodist Church, 6037 Franconia Rd, Alexandria, VA 22310 (View Map)

Description: Franconia United Methodist Church, 6037 Franconia Rd, Alexandria, invites you to attend our free Fall Bible Study, Disciple I, Becoming Disciples through Bible Study. BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY is the foundation of the DISCIPLE Bible Study program. DISCIPLE assumes that the bible is the key to renewal in the church. It recognizes the human-divine nature of the Bible: The actual texts of Scripture were written by human beings like ourselves in their cultural settings, under the divine inspiration of God. DISCIPLE affirms that the canon was formed as it is in order for God to speak to us. BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY gives equal time to both the Old and New Testament, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as the revelation of God. DISCIPLE aims at transformation, not just information, and calls on persons to submit themselves to examination by Scripture, to put themselves under the power of God’s Word, and to be changed by God’s Word. DISCIPLE invites persons to bring their experiences and struggles to the Scripture. All persons know something is amiss with their existence and yearn for the Word from God. BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY uses biblical language and images and draws upon the work of scholars to aid understanding of the Bible. This study requires reading large portions of Scripture each week and is based on careful study and preparation. Groups will move through the biblical stories of Creation to the New Jerusalem. The titles of the sessions along with theme words; theme verses; and major persons, events, and topics will set the sequence of the biblical story in the minds of the participants. The principal Scripture for each session follows the chronological movement of the biblical story. This 34 week class starts on Tues Sept 18 at 7 PM. Contact Frank Cocuzzi at 703 971-5151 or dce@franconiaumc.org. Our website is http://www.franconiaumc.org. We're at the corner of Beulah and Franconia, next to Franconia Elementary School, on Fairfax Connector buses 231, 232, and 310.

Under the Tree of Life Bible Study
Date: 3/19/2013
Time: 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Location: Franconia United Methodist Church, 6037 Franconia Rd, Alexandria, VA 22310 (View Map)

Description: Franconia United Methodist Church, 6037 Franconia Rd, Alexandria, invites you to attend our free Fall Bible Study, Disciple IV, Under the Tree of Life. UNDER THE TREE OF LIFE is a thirty-four-week study prepared for graduates of BECOMING DISCIPLES THROUGH BIBLE STUDY. The word Under in the title is meant to convey invitation, welcome, sheltering, security, and rest--home at last. The Hebrew version of what Christians call the Old Testament has three divisions: Torah (the first five books of the Bible), the Prophets, and the Writings. The Writings include all the books that are not part of the Torah or the Prophets. UNDER THE TREE OF LIFE concentrates on the writings in the Old Testament – Ruth, 1 and 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Lamentations, and Daniel. New Testament Scriptures include the Gospel of John; 1, 2, and 3 John; James; Jude; and Revelation. Emphasis on the Psalms as Israel’s hymnbook and prayer book leads naturally to an emphasis on worship in the study. Present though the entire study is the sense of living toward completion, toward the climax of the message and the promise, extravagantly pictured in the Revelation. This 34 week class starts on Tues Sept 18 at 7 PM. Contact Frank Cocuzzi at 703 971-5151 or dce@franconiaumc.org. Our website is http://www.franconiaumc.org. We're at the corner of Beulah and Franconia, next to Franconia Elementary School, on Fairfax Connector buses 231, 232, and 310.
