Where do we meet and for how long?
We meet weekly for 60 minutes in the worship area after the opening of Sunday School in the fellowship hall.
May I bring friends?
Yes! Just let the pastor know how many are coming with you so he can prepare enough copies of the material.
How much does the course cost?
Only your time. The church wants to give away this valuable information at no charge.
Will I have to read anything out loud?
Only if you want to. Participate how you’re comfortable.
Is there homework?
Choose your level of participation. You may a) just sit and listen, b) take notes on the sheets handed out, c) read parts of the Bible associated with upcoming lessons, d) answer review questions at home (a.k.a. homework), e) read other materials to expand your knowledge of a topic.
What if I miss a lesson?
You may request a copy of the lesson to read at home, or you may meet with the pastor privately, or you may attend that lesson when BDC is offered in the future.
What if the schedule on this sheet doesn’t work for me?
Let the pastor know when you are
available. Many others are being invited to BDC. We might be able to offer an additional class time each week.
May I join the church if I finish the class?
Completing the class qualifies you to join the church, but it does not obligate you to do so.
