Children’s Bible Quizzing in the book of Exodus (2020-2021) will end with the World Quiz in June. The new quiz season studying Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (2021-2022) will begin in August with Bible study and practice on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. Quiz meets will be once a month on Saturdays at our church as well as other local Nazarene Churches.
What is Children’s Bible Quizzing?
Children’s Quizzing is a six-year Bible study program with a competition element. These books give the overall chronology of God’s people, the Israelites, and a “snapshot” of the Bible. The series begins with the Creation account, the first people, and the Patriarchs (Genesis). It continues with the Israelites living in and leaving Egypt (Exodus) and follows them as they establish themselves in Canaan (Joshua, Judges, & Ruth, and 1 & 2 Samuel). The two New Testament books center on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (Matthew), and tell how the gospel of salvation came to the Gentiles (Acts).
Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (2021-2022):
The theme is The Adventures in the Promised Land. The books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth will come to life as children learn the great stories of Ruth, Gideon, Samson, Joshua, and the ultimate hero, God.
We will study these books through hands-on activities, Scripture memorization, Bible study, and faith words. Characteristics of God are revealed in each weekly Dig Site to help children learn who God is, what He is like, and how He interacts with people.
