What is Team Word Bible Bowl Competition? It's an annual adventure in the Word of God for young people ages 10-16. Each competition covers a portion of scripture — usually one book or several small books. Many of the young competitors memorize entire chapters and all become familiar with the content of the studied portion with an in-depth understanding of the material.
The youngsters at Triadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Church have been coming home with a First Place award in national competition for a number of years now. Competing with local adults helps the kids prepare for state, regional and North American competition. One year the kids trounced a team of ministers in the practice round. Last year they competed against adult teams in the congregation as all honed skills. All did well. Some of the adults even managed to memorize whole chapters.
Coach Sharon Crews has developed wonderful materials to help in the learning process. This year Sharon is offering help to all individuals and teams who would like to compete locally with the kids. Get your group together. Improve your memory and knowledge of 2 Samuel, the portion of Scripture for the next round of competition. Don't worry. The kids are very gracious and willing to support and encourage adults. Call Sharon Crews at 301-219-1028 to learn more.
