Children’s Bible Quizzing

What is it?

Children’s Bible Quizzing is a six-year Bible study program with a competition element, designed for children in grades 1-6. Children’s quizzing incorporates a variety of activities to help children immerse themselves in scripture learning what life was like in Bible times. Children will build their spiritual vocabulary, learn Characteristics of God, and also learn and discover new facts about the world during Bible times.


When do we meet?

Children’s quizzing is ran through both the local church and the district.

Each local church will decide when to meet for their team and we come together as a district 5 times throughout the school year to “compete” against each other! Quizzes are held at both area churches on the district and at the district campground. *See attached flyer for next year’s quizzing dates and information about quizzing this year with Covid-19*

What are we studying? This year (2020-2021) we will be studying the book of Exodus with the general theme being “Follow the Leader!” We will once again join Dr. Digalot and Canteen as we “time travel” to Bible times to follow with Moses and the Israelites as God, our Leader, rescues them from Egypt.

Nazarene Safe

Sexual abuse is a growing problem, not just in the world, but in the Church. Statistics reveal that 1 in 3 girls, and 1 in 5 boys will be sexually abused by age 18. The Church of the Nazarene has adopted a ZERO TOLERANCE Policy for sexual misconduct, that must be enforced at the local church level.

NazareneSafe exists to equip local churches in enforcing that policy, and creating safe environments for God’s family. NazareneSafe is the toolbox to help you build a safe, protected church. Every NEI Church must become a NazareneSafe Church!
