I am interested in setting up an additional bible study group with our residents. I need some ideas on how to program the bible study and what suggestions on what to focus on. Thank you all for your help.

Hi Amber, although I never led a Bible group I have in the past organized church volunteers to come to the facility for that reason. They were wonderful people who taught, entertained, and made many a sad person happy. I remember one particular group where they started the session with "Finish the Sentence", as an ice-breaker: "I am blessed because..." . It was a very effective start and everybody participated. They also had a nice game where someone whisppered a bible verse in the ear of his nexdoor neighbour and he in turn passed the story to another one and so on with 10 or 12 people. The fun is that by the time the story reached the 12th peros the verse is completely different from the original verse and everybody had a good laugh. Another game very popular was "Who Am I?", two groups of 2 or 3 people would choose a Bible person and write short biography to be read aloud to another group. The group would guess the Bible persongen and then do the same with the other group. I hope this can help you. All the best.

Eldersong sells a book called "52 Weeks Studying the Word". We have it and it works great for our Bible Study. Worth the investment.

Hi Wendy,
You are lucky to have a resident who runs the activity
Who escorts the other residents to the activity?
Does she run the entire activity or just part of it?
How many residents usually engage in this activity?
Thank you very much for this information
