Bible study on social media?
Many of us use Facebook for all sorts of reasons, but in these times it could also be a great resource to run a KYB group!
Facebook groups work well in keeping members connected and interacting during the week. Posting regularly and asking a question so there is something to discuss will help group members feel the interaction.
You might like to consider making posts with a question from each Day’s KYB reading and something to share or discuss. This may make it easier to ‘meet’ via telephone or video calling and work through the questions.
Facebook’s messenger feature also allows group video calling as well as instant messaging, which some KYB groups have also been using.
Please note: We strongly recommend you make a ‘Private’ group if you expect anything personal such as anecdotes, testimonies or prayer points may be shared.
We’d love to hear about your experiences and what your KYB group is doing!

Our KYB has had a private Facebook page for a few years now. We originally set it up when some of our ladies were having babies and couldn’t always get to KYB – they could keep up to date with news and which study we were up to. I’ve sometimes posted links to songs or quotes or reading recommendations that link to our current studies. Because it is a private group we have been able to share prayer points also. Now that we are unable to meet in person, Facebook has become our ‘home-base’ for KYB. I’ve been able to schedule daily posts with the readings and questions for each day of each study (e.g. Unit 1 Day 1) – the ladies put their answers in the comments section below. We also use Facebook Messenger for a weekly video-call for those who are able to join in for our usual study. Ladies have been able to connect as much or as little as they are able depending on their individual circumstances. So we thank God for the blessing of technology and still look forward to meeting face to face one day soon.
Hi Rachel, thanks for sharing your group’s experience! It sounds very well organised and a great way to keep encouraging each other and studying God’s word together each day! We are certainly thanking God for the blessing of technology and the willingness of our KYB Leaders and groups to adapt to these times! ❤️
