The Wonderful World of Bible Quizzing

We, The Rock Church, were honored to host the Southwestern Summer Invitational for this year. In this tournament, we had four teams, all of which came from our church. The break down was: Sac 1: Delaney and Darilyn Reighard, Sac 2: Karlee Horton, Katrina Ezell, and Levi Marquez(my son of course) Sac 3: Josh Gideons, Riley Madsen, and Oriana Pelton, Sac 4: Isabelle Noriega, Cali Madsen, Rainy Madsen, Kayla Horton, and Myles Marquez(my other son). Ironically, that is exactly what order of place they took as well. It was a very good tournament, and Levi's team went undefeated until the very last game. This is the beginner division which includes ages 5 to 8. These little guys(and gals) will know 184 verses by the next tournament which is in July. Most adults don't know that many verses!!! Not only do they know them, but you can ask them one word in a verse and they can locate it and quote it! Throughout this year, they are learning some very important principles, for example, the fruit of the Spirit, unity in the body of Christ, putting on the whole armour of God, and these are only a few. It isn't always easy to motivate and keep the kids interested. But as soon as we have a tournament, it seems to inspire them and they are eager to learn. I am posting a few pictures from this tournament, these pictures were taken by Elle, my resident photographer. (A few were taken by me)
