Bible Bowl - Bible Bowlers are Middles Schoolers and High Schoolers who study from a book of the bible for the school year.
On the first Saturday of each month they compete in tournaments with youth groups from other churches. Both memorized knowledge and comprehension are pursued. This gives the participants an extraordinary understanding of the books they study. Last year covered 1st & 2nd Samuel, this current school year they are studying the writings of John (Gospel of John, 1st, 2nd, & 3rd John & Revelation).
In the summer Youth Group programming changes from the school year.
There is more play and shorter lessons designed to help build community between the young people.
