In a few weeks I expect to host a ladies small group Bible study in our home. In my previous experiences with Bible studies I was always a participant. Never a leader. Since this is my first time, I’m sort of unsure about what we should do. Here are a few ideas I’ve had. Let me know what you think about them or if you have any suggestions about Bible study throw those in too!
1. Journal time- I thought it would be neat to open with time for silent reflection and journaling. For five minutes we would write down anything on our minds. It might be grocery items, prayer requests, thoughts about the day or the angry things I wanted to say at the driver who cut me off on the way.
2. Q & A – This won’t be a lecture format. It will be discussion oriented. I’m not sure what book we will use. That’s still up in the air.
3. Infants welcome – Allowing babies to come is sort of a risky move. They came be pretty distracting. However, I’ve found that if I can’t bring my baby to an event I’m probably not going to go. She’s just too young to find a sitter. And finding a sitter once a week would add up really fast.
What ideas do you have? I can use a lot of help!
