Thanks to all who supported January’s Stonecroft Bible Studies Survey. We received nearly 350 completed reports, representing over 2,300 people who learned more about God through Scripture! It’s awesome when you pause to consider that so many Bible studies happened across the country last fall – and these numbers reflect only the studies that completed the survey.

What You Told Us

Stonecroft Bible Studies group attendance averaged 8, with some groups having as many as 24 and others being one-on-one studies.

When asked where your studies take place, an overwhelming number of you shared that you host Bible studies in your home.

According to the survey, last fall’s top five most popular studies were:


  1. Growing in the Christian Life
  2. Discovering the Joy of Jesus
  3. Connecting with God
  4. Living in God’s Will
  5. Who is the Holy Spirit

Best of All, You Reported That 41 Women Began a Relationship with Christ!

Jesus said in Luke 15:10 that “… there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents” (NLT). Let’s follow that example and rejoice over 41 lives that changed forever.

Winners of the random giveaway were Mary Ann Martin of Harlingen, Texas; Lois Ross of Lompoc, California; and Janice Green of Hemingway, South Carolina. Congratulations, your studies are on their way!

Keep up the great work! We plan to send a similar survey/report twice a year: in January to report June – December studies, and in June to report January – May studies. So watch for a survey to appear in your inbox in early June.

Thank you for taking the time to share God’s life-giving Word!
