B365 Groups

B365 Groups

B365 refers to FLPC's year-long, church-wide study of Magrey Devega's The Bible Year: A Journey Through Scripture in 365 Days.

If you’re looking to increase your Scripture knowledge, join one of these small groups (or start your own)! Each group will meet for 8 weeks and then determine how it will continue to support each other through the year. If you form your own group, please let Ed Black know! We'd love to keep track of who is doing it!

You can do this alone, with family members, or form your own support group. Everyone who participates (alone or with a group) will be eligible and invited to participate in larger discussions and events intended to support and enhance your understanding of Scripture.

How often do the groups meet? Each group is expected to meet for 8 consecutive weeks beginning the week of January 7. After the first 8 weeks, each group will determine its meeting and support schedule.

How long are the meetings? Group meetings are approximately one hour.

How much reading is required? Please plan to spend approximately 20-30 minutes each day reading that particular day’s assigned Scripture. Magrey Devega, the book’s author, provides a perspective for each day’s reading, too.
