This ministry idea shared by one of our readers, Linda M Howard from First Baptist Church Tyrone, GA.
I do have something I would like to share with you so you can share it with others. I wanted my class to learn the disciples but couldn’t find any ‘help’ when searching the internet. So I decided to put them in alphabetical order and I was amazed at how easy it was then. This is the results:
A ~ Andrew
B ~ Bartholomew
J ~ James, James, Judas, Judas, John
M ~ Matthew
P ~ Peter, Philip
S ~ Simon
T ~ Thomas
They loved learning this and wanted to say them every time we met. One asked if they could learn the Books of the Bible in Alphabetical order! If you want to use Thaddaeus, you can add him in the “T” list and take out one Judas.
Hope this will be as much fun for others as it was for us.

I too have been struggling with a method to learn the disciples! This is wonderful!
The Alphabetical order of the disciples are awesome. Thanks for the great idea.
