This morning I want to take a break from house stuff on the blog and talk about something much more important. For all of you out there looking to deepen your faith, meet new friends and learn the Bible, I want to be sure you've heard of BSF - Bible Study Fellowship.
I started it this year as a way to learn the Bible in depth, one scripture at a time, by myself. I've done so many great studies but I never feel like I remember to apply it to my life after the study is over. BSF studies only one book of the Bible each year (from September thru May) so you really get to digest the entire book verse by verse over 9 months which helps you remember what you learn. This year we are studying Acts.
The time committment is about 20 minutes, 6 days a week to work on the lesson at home and then 2 hours, 1 day a week to meet in your small group and then hear a bible teacher speak.
They have a fabulous children's program with leaders who teach your children (birth and up) a lesson that correlates to the lesson the adults study. And everything is FREE!
There are classes worldwide (both daytime and evening). It's a great way to get connected and meet new women (I just transferred my membership from Columbus to here and met friends right away). Each city study has a different number of women studying. Columbus had over 750 women every Thursday morning. My new city has 120 women every Thursday morning. But we all study the same exact thing each week. So if you are traveling and miss your group, you can visit another group and get the same lesson.
The women are of many different ages (from 90 years old to 19 years old) and different backgrounds/beliefs (Cathoics, Jews, Methodists, Presbyterians, etc). But we all have one thing in common and that is our belief in the Bible. This is a fabulous study.
