Bible Study Fellowship came to an end last Monday night with our Share Night. It is a night set aside for our members to share with the class what God has done for them through the year’s study. This year we studied the Acts of the Apostles. It included the entire book of Acts, Hebrews, First and Second Thessalonians, First and Second Corinthians, Ephesians, James, First and Second Peter and Jude. I thought our Share Night attendance was about the best we had experienced and the sharing was wonderful to hear.
One of the biggest blessings in my life has been Bible Study Fellowship. It has given me accountability to be in God’s Word and been a wonderful tool for growth in my spiritual life for a number of years. So it is a privilege to be able to serve the Lord through this ministry.
This is our class staff which includes, the teaching leader, substitute teaching leader, class administrator, and the children’s supervisor. I love these ladies who by their lives reveal their love for Jesus. Not by perfect lives but by being “doers of the Word and not hearers only”. (One of my lessons when we studied James)
I am also privileged to have a wonderful Admin Team. I think for the first time since taking the position of class administrator I have served with ladies who have had been “heart” oriented over being “task” oriented.
You’ve probably heard me moan and groan about my move this year. Wally took the job just as BSF was gearing up. I’m not sure if my mind ever fully engaged the move or BSF all year. So I really look back and see these ladies as God’s gift to me. They truly kept the class rolling.
Its not a requirement to have kids to be on the admin team, but we sure did appreciate the help of the kids of two of our members. We arrive early each class night to set the church. It involves moving tables and chairs and roping off the seating in the sanctuary. What a blessing to have kids who have energy to assist you in that!
This is my first Monday since September that I do not have to run out the door at 5:00. Whoo-hoo! I am looking forward to the summer break. In the fall we will be studying Genesis. I am looking forward to that as well. See if there is a class near you and join us…men included!
