Disciple IV:Under the Tree of Life
Anne Boyd  | Sundays 6:15-8pm
This Bible Study invites the participant to explore both the Old and New Testament. Participants will study the great stories in books like Esther, Job, Daniel, the Gospel of John and Revelation. This class will look to these amazing scriptures to better understand the promise of finding shelter, security, and rest in God’s love. Participants in this class are asked to have completed Disciple I.

Christian Believer
Rev. Max Vincent  | Sundays 6:15-8pm
Christian Believer is a study of the classical doctrines of the Christian faith which includes God’s providence, atonement, judgment and eternal life. This class blends together the reading of Scripture with reading classic Christian writings. Participants in this class are asked to have completed Disciple 1.

Each of these courses will begin on September 8 and end in early May with a long break in the middle for the Christmas season. There is a small fee associated with each class for materials but scholarships are available if needed. Childcare is available for both studies upon request.  If you are interested in taking either of these courses, or if you would like more information, please contact Rev. Elizabeth Lobello Edwards at eedwards@stjamesatlanta.org.  There is a minimum of 10 participants per study

In addition to these studies, be on the lookout for a short-term introduction to the Bible on Wednesday evenings in the fall and a Disciple 1 course in January.  More Information to come!
