Do you have a plan for your summer Bible study? School’s out and many of the women’s Bible study groups have ended until the fall. It’s easy to let time in God’s Word fall by the wayside during this fun and less structured time of year. But that doesn’t have to happen.

We all need regular, consistent time with God. Yes, summer schedules make it more difficult, but it’s not impossible. With just a little planning and an intentional attitude you can make God’s Word a priority even now.

The following suggestions include a range of different types of Bible study opportunities. Some are resources I provide and others are from sources I trust.

Private Facebook Bible Reading Group

I’ve been leading “Reading the Bible Together” on Facebook for almost 10 years. This encouraging, active community includes women of all ages and walks of life who want to be in God’s Word. The members pray for one another and welcome all.

We read through one Bible book at a time, maintaining a pace that allows us to go a little deeper. The group fits any schedule, you can stop in anytime. We have women from all over the world so everyone reads and comments when it works best for them. Here’s the details:

  • Summer Study: 1 & 2 Corinthians
  • Format: Daily written group posts for reading assignment, questions, and discussion
  • Introduction: Saturday, June 22, 2024 
  • Readings & Discussion: Begins Monday, June 24, 2024
  • Cost: FREE
  • Resources needed: Your Bible and a journal or notebook or the “Deep Rooted Journal.

To Join, follow this link to “Reading the Bible Together,” request to join, and answer the three easy questions. Note: Currently we are about halfway through Hebrews but we begin a new book in June. You are welcome to join now to see how it all works. If you want to hop into Hebrews that’s fine too!

How the group works:

  • Readings & discussion questions for Monday through Friday
  • Daily posts scheduled for 5am Central time
  • Averages 20-30 verses a day
  • Formatted to help you get into the Word for yourself
  • This group is FREE
  • New Bible books begin immediately after one ends
  • You can start and stop at any time

Personal or In-person small group study

There are so many resources available to help you study the Bible on your own. Or you could invite a few women to join you. You could meet once a week in someone’s home to make it cozy and casual. Here’s some ideas:

  • Bible reading plan – I’ve got several on my website, but you can find others on BibleGateway or YouVersion apps.
  • Deep Rooted book – Each volume of my “meaty” devotional series works through one book of the Bible using a simple inductive study method. Each volume is either 40 or 50 days of reading and discussion so that works great for a summer Bible study. You may even have time for two. Choose from Mark, Acts, Romans, or Hebrews. Deep Rooted: Growing through the Book of Hebrews is the newest volume! If your faith feels a little road weary, this beautiful encouraging Bible book may be just what you need! By the way. “Deep Rooted: Growing through the Gospel of John” is coming in September.
  • Your own Bible reading plan – Pick a book of the Bible or a topic. Decide how many days of reading you want to cover and map out what you’ll break it down. To help you gain confidence in your Bible study see “The 4 R Bible Study Method.”
