Summer Bible Study

Here are six questions you’ll need to answer in order to set sail on your own summer Bible study adventure.

How to Organize Your Own Summer Bible Study

1. What type of group do you want to create?

Do you want to launch a group within your church? Do you want to invite people from several different churches? Do you want both men and women? Do you want it geared toward couples, adults, young adults, youth, or a mix-and-match of everyone? Prayerfully consider who God is leading you to invite. Start spreading the word to family and friends.

Hang fliers on your local library’s community board, your church, or at the coffee shop down the street. Consider inviting those you may not have thought of—that neighbor down the street, the co-worker in the office next door, the bank teller you speak to often. You never know who may be seeking fellowship.

2. How many people should be in your summer Bible study group?

You’ll want anywhere from 5-15 members, although numbers will flux some depending on the type of book club. However, when numbers climb over 15 people, not everyone has the chance to discuss and side conversations can be easily distracting. If you have more than 15 people, consider breaking off into small groups during discussion and prayer times.
