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

the corner of Beulah and Franconia, next to Franconia Elementary School, on
Fairfax Connector buses 231, 232, and 310.
