Most of us would be put to shame by young people ages 10 to 15 who compete in the Pathfinder Bible Experience Bible Bowl competition. Teams from the Triadelphia Pathfinder Club almost always come home with a first place in national competition.
On Saturday, April 12, at 3 p.m. they will compete with teams from across North America and Bermuda at the Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church at the corner of Flower and Carroll Avenues in Takoma Park. National competition is not usually held so close to home. You are welcome to come observe at no cost.
