"DISCIPLE" BIBLE STUDY CELEBRATES 30 YEARS WITH RECEPTIONS AT JURISDICTIONAL CONFERENCE   

2016 marks the 30th Anniversary of DISCIPLE's inception, and the Richard and Julia Wilke Institute for Discipleship is making stops across the country to meet with people who love this study as much as we do! These celebrations will be a time to meet people involved in the study, share memories, meet old friends and new, and celebrate the impact the study has had over the past 30 years as well as where it is headed in the future.

From 5:15-7:15 pm on July 14th at the Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square in the Cokesbury Store, we will be celebrating with the Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference. We'll even have a commemorative lapel pin for you. We would love to see you at the reception!  Want to be involved, but can't attend?  Take a picture of yourself with your manual and share it with us on Facebook or Twitter and follow along at #DISCIPLE30!
