Founded in 1934, the Hawthorne Community Bible School is the oldest Bible school in the New York Metropolitan Area. Here individuals may enroll in 12- week semesters in the fall and winter. The Bible School is financed by a freewill offering collected at the start of each evening. A three-year certificate and a four-year diploma may be earned in the Hawthorne Community Bible School through the Hawthorne Gospel Church. The new semester will begin in September.
