Bible Quizzing seeks to embed the Word of God in the hearts and minds of youth through competitive fun!
Every month our youth, grades 3 through 12, memorize passages of Scripture from Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, & Philemon (teens). They train to answer Scripture-related questions in preparation for a monthly competition against Bible quiz teams from many other churches. Teams go head-to-head in two-way matches consisting of 20 questions. Whoever jumps fastest wins the chance to answer the question and earn 20 points for his team.
The team with the most points after 20 questions wins the match. The team with the most cumulative victories at the end of the year takes the championship!
Throughout the year, teams also have opportunity to compete in regional Bible quiz tournaments.
“Bible Quizzing has been such a blessing to our family! The depth of study has given our kids such an understanding of Scripture! And I love seeing how they are connecting the dots between Old Testament passages that are referenced in the New Testament (specifically in Acts since that's what they are studying) and recognizing the whole story of God's Word. The friendships they - and we - have formed are just an added blessing. We're thankful that we were "roped in!" We're hooked!”
~The Theriault Family
When my family decided to get involved in bible quizzing this year, my youngest son, an 8 year old at the time, wanted to join also. Up until this time he was reading, but not at as high a level as his siblings before him had at that age. He quickly became so excited about quizzing, that he would sit and motor through the passages, and his quiz question cards, even when they were challenging. His reading level has improved over the course of these few months due to his diligence in wanting to learn the material for these bible quiz meets. This is just one of the ways that God has used Bible Quizzing to benefit our family! ~Elizabeth Babler
