Bible Study Ground Rules

I gave these ground rule suggestions out on March 16, 2015 on the first day of the Online Leadership Conference that I held.  They are also listed in the Building a Women's Ministry Series and are included in the Bible Studies in Women's Ministry download in the CLM Shop.

I'm listing them here again because I think it is so important to let our ladies know what is expected of them during meetings and Bible studies and I wanted to put these ground rules in a place by themeselves so new leaders could find them easier.

These are just suggestions below.  You may want to add more things to your guidelines.

  • Arrive on time.

  • Read the passage ahead of time.

  • Answer the "homework" before the next study time.

  • Be courteous to others in the group.

  • Keep your comments concise (no long winded speeches)

  • Keep your comments on the topic.

  • Everything said in the group is confidential.

CLM Ladies Ministry TipsGive out your "ground rules" during your first meeting of the year but remember to give a copy to new ladies as they join your study.  

Remind regular attenders of the "ground rules" from time to time.  If you have a bulletin board in your meeting room, keep them posted.
