I've been noticing a lot of wonderful Bible swaps lately and I wanted to host one of my own. @LindaW and @SunflowerRose are both hosting a series of wonderful Bible swaps that I suggest you join, but I wanted to try one a bit different.

My goal for this year (and into the next probably) is to read my way through the Bible from Genesis to Revelations. I want to create a journal to save my journey through all the books. So to help on my adventure I thought it would be fun to host a series of Bible Activity swaps.

For these swaps you will read the Bible passage indicated in the swap and then after you read the passage you will create a Bible activity for your partner. It can be anything you wish to create but here are a few options:

  • Cryptogram of one or more verses in the passage.

  • Word Search with some key words from passage

  • Crossword Puzzle

  • Fill in the blank, Where you write the passage out and leave key words out that your partner has to fill in.

  • If you are good at drawing, you could even make or find a coloring page that relates to the passage.

  • A genealogy chart that your partner can fill in as they read the passage. ( Thinking of Genesis here..hahahaha)

Any of those options are wonderful or you can think of something on your own. We just want to give our partners a Bible Activity that allows them to further study the passage that is assigned for that swap.

Now onto the requirements:

  1. One Partner

  2. One activity created by YOU related to the assigned passage.

  3. Please use notebook sized paper ( 8.5 x 11 ) and make sure it is three hole punched so your partner can save it and add it to a binder if they wish.

  4. Please only use front side of paper.

  5. Let's decorate the page a bit. Nothing fancy required, but stickers or colored ink can dress up a plain sheet of paper.

  6. Make sure to give directions on how to do the activity.

  7. Enclose answers to the activity (in case your partner struggles)

  8. Let your partner know which Bible version you are using so that they can refer to that version when doing the activity. It may make it easier since wording can be different from version to version.

  9. On the back of the activity page, write the swap-name, Bible passage (ex John 3: 1 - 20), the swap name and the date.

I think that is all. If you have any questions, send me a PM because I don't usually come in and read the comments.

Bible Passage: Genesis Chapter 1 & 2.

You can start creating your Bible Activity now, you don't have to wait for partner assignments. Please remember that even though the sign up date says July 8th, hosts cannot assign partners until the following day and we have up to 2 days to assign partners after that date. If things get busy in real life then it may take me until the 10th to get online here and assign partners. Please be kind and patient. If you have your swap ready prior to the 8th then you can mail your swap with plenty of time to make the 15th deadline for mailing out. -- Thank you!

Because of the activity and that it may take time to create, I would like to host this swap twice a month if we have enough interest. I see we have three joiners and 7 folks watching. I hope some of our watchers will join in. I would like to do 2-3 chapters per swap, depending on where the chapters break up. Like for this swap I chose the creation and Adam and Eve chapters. Next swap I will do the fall and Cain and Abel. I am using the NIV version and that is how my index is set up. (Using Biblegateway.com).

I am going to keep it one activity per swap, but I was thinking personally that it would be fun to create one activity per chapter so I may do that for my partner unless the two chapters overlap in subject matter.
