How Long is Bible Study Fellowship?

“How long is Bible Study Fellowship?”

Bible Study Fellowship now runs for 30 weeks and follows the school year. In the United States, the first BSF classes begin the week after Labor Day. There is a three-week break for Christmas and a one-week break for Spring Break, which varies depending on your BSF group.

This is different in other countries. Many begin in late August, and those in the Southern Hemisphere begin the BSF study about half-way through ours due to their different seasons.

The BSF classes themselves run approximately two hours. This includes group discussion and lecture.

In the past, BSF was 32 weeks and was 2.5 hours long. However, 2.5 hours is a long time for young children, and students at night would get home really late. Thirty weeks gives a bit more of a break during the summer, too.

How Does Bible Study Fellowship Work?

Many people wonder, “How does Bible Study Fellowship work?” Perhaps, they have heard of it or have friends who participate, and they want to join.

Bible Study Fellowship, or BSF, takes a four-fold approach to its Bible study:

  1. Answer. You begin with a Bible lesson that covers a particular passage. This features questions that will help you to understand the passage better and explore what it means to you.
  2. Discuss. You will then meet with your group, going over the questions and gathering further insight to the passage based on what others have discovered.
  3. Listen. You will then listen to a lecture prepared by the teaching leader of your class that will further dive into the meaning of the passage and pose questions that may help you dive deeper into the Bible passage’s meaning to you.
  4. Explore. Finally, you’ll read about the passage and read Bible commentary for other great insights into the Bible passages’ meaning.

Here’s a nifty video of this approach from BSF HERE

Is Bible Study Fellowship Free?

I’ve gotten this question, “Is Bible Study Fellowship free?” many times, so I thought I’d set the record straight!

Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) IS FREE!

There is absolutely no cost to this bible study. BSF is a non-profit, operating on donations for the most part and the sale of some items. Those who do attend are encouraged to give, and most BSF locations have a donation basket near where they hand out the questions for giving in person. BSF encourages those who are able to give online, too.

You can donate HERE if interested.

There should never be any restrictions to learning about God. BSF supports this view, too.

Onto a New Beginnning…

Hey all!

Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) is winding down, and we are about to leave the Book of Matthew behind. I hope you all found it as transformative as I did and learned about God, His Son, and His plans, and grew with Him.

I will be posting later this week some suggested summer Bible Studies (as well as what I intend to do right here if you all want to follow along). I sincerely hope you all have found a bit of a nugget here in this blog at some point this past year about the Book of Matthew.

If you have found my blog useful, I’d sincerely appreciate any support you can give me. It helps me to keep going during the tough times (and there are many each and every year).

While there is no pressure to give as I know you all have other causes to support, I’d just like to throw it out there as an option.

Click HERE or I have a donation button on my sidebar that uses PayPal. It’s secure, and you don’t need a PayPal account.

Have a great summer if I don’t “see” you, be sure to sign up for BSF’s Study of the People of the Promise for next year, and drop a line if you have time sometime! I’d love to hear from you!

What Denomination is Bible Study Fellowship?

Many people wonder what denomination Bible Study Fellowship (or BSF) is. This is important to some because they want to make sure beliefs that they don’t follow or agree with are taught, especially to their kids.

BSF is officially nondenominational and simply is a lay group offering a Bible study. It has grown due to its four-fold approach to studying the Bible, as well as its thoroughness. As the world changes, BSF has so far successfully adapted, offering online Bible studies and materials. This is great for rural communities and seniors who can’t make it to an in-person Bible study class.

Consider joining for next year’s study, People of the Promise, and contact me today!

Great Bible resources!

Enjoy!

BSF usually rotates studies by doing a New Testament book one year and then an Old Testament book/study the next year.
