Path of Discipleship

The Education Committee and others at Otterbein are offering studies throughout the week and at various times throughout the year. These are on various topics and are offered with the hope and prayer that we can all find something new to help us in our own individual paths of discipleship.

The First Steps Class...

    The First Steps class is beginning again this Fall! This is a four week program that cover the history of Methodism, the local history of Otterbein, as well as dive into what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and how that applies to you. This class will from October 27 to November 17 and will be meeting in the library. First Steps is a prerequisite to membership at Otterbein UMC. If becoming a member interests you or you have more questions feel free to contact our Coordinator of Lay Ministries Allegra Juday ajuday@otterbeinumccarlisle.org.

Ongoing Discipleship study...

     Disciple is a program of disciplined Bible study, giving the Old and New Testaments equal time, and emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. DISCIPLE I draws upon the work of scholars and includes personal Bible reading and study, and dynamic group discussions to aid in our understanding of the Bible. It is an organized, 34-week, deep, challenging and thought-provoking study. Week by week your knowledge of Scripture will grow, and your confidence in expressing your views will be strengthened. It will also help you develop strong study habits as you explore the context of Scripture in the culture for which it was written, as well as in our current culture. This class is held on Thursday evenings and started on September 5.  Please contact church office for contact information.
