Using Scrapbook Cards in Your Small Group


(Stamps used are courtesy of Impression Obsession, Inc.*)

Bible studies don’t have to be dry and boring. God’s Word is alive and powerful, and He has given us all kinds of creative methods to take His Word to heart. Scrapbook cards can be one of them.

They’re colorful. They’re pretty. What’s not to like?

When my mom and I teach a small group Bible study, we make scrapbook card kits. Every group member puts together a scrapbook card that has a principle from the lesson on it. Using double sticky tape, the group members tape the layers of the card together, and they’re done. Fast and easy!

In every Bible study that we have used these cards, the ladies have enjoyed putting them together. I’ve heard one lady say that she tapes her cards to the bathroom mirror, so she (and her family and visitors) can see the cards. A sweet young lady once gave her card to her dad who was going through a tough time. This group activity lets the members chat at the end of class, and giggle as they put together the pieces. They also have a reminder of the lesson once they leave the session, and can be encouraged throughout the week when they glance at the card.

Check out our Scrapbooked Bible Study page for more examples of class cards and for instructions of how to make them. If you don’t have enough time to make them for your small group study of one of our three books, email us, and we’ll see if we have the time to help you out! If so, you can cover the cost of paper and shipping, and we can mail you the card kits to use in your group. Usually we can send them out in a week.

If you have been involved in a small group Bible study, has your group ever used a special activity like this to help the lesson sink in? If so, tell us about it!

    I remember you talking about these last year at Blue Ridge. Such a cute idea and a fun way to get people involved with the lesson! Love your creativity!

    Ah, you do? My mom thought of it, and when we incorporated it into a lesson, the ladies loved it. Thank you for your comment and stopping by! I wonder whether kids would get into this too. Like if you used cards in your homeschooling with them. Maybe if Lighthouse ever puts on a Vacation Bible School, we could use cards like this.

    This is a really neat idea with Bible verses! I homeschool and my kids like to make bookmarks out of memory verses.  I think this is very creative!

    I think it would be great to have Bible verses on there. Please let me know if you make scrapbook cards with your kids, and even send me a picture! Thanks for stopping by, Maria!

    I think I'll do these with my daughter during our Bible study! She loves things like this.

    I am glad you mentioned it! I hope she enjoys this if you try it. I was homeschooled, and my mom and I studied God's Word together. It brought us closer, and I loved learning from her. May God bless your homeschooling and study time wth your daughter!

    I picked up a couple of these at the conference. Such a great idea. I'm using one as a bookmark in your new study, Katy. My study uses lots of Scripture and I could use these for the ladies to write their favorite verses on.

    I am glad you got some at the conference, Sherry. And one of them is in my book!! Please refer to our instruction page if you're going to make some:  http://lighthousebiblestudies.com/scrapbooked-bible-study. The instructions are also in the back of the Leader Guide in my book. Faith, Courage, and Victory has some pictures to show examples that 2 Timothy: Winning the Victory didn't have. So glad you like the cards! It was Mom's idea.
