Mark Your Calendars!
There is still plenty of time to join the fun at the 2015 Bible Bee Contest! The season has been shortened to 6 weeks for our summer study, starting on June 22. We hope this gives your family time to participate and makes the summer study easier for your students. The testing day has also been moved to August 1st and will be held online – much less intimidating for first time Bible scholars! On August 8th, we will meet for an Awards Ceremony and Celebration.

The Bible Bee is on TV!
Don’t miss the Bible Bee Game Show airing Wednesdays at 4:30 PM and Saturdays at 8:30 AM on NRB. The program is also available on the NRB website at the same times. One of our very own contestants participated in this competition and had so much fun! This show will be a great inspiration to hide God’s Word in your heart and has the potential to reach many for the Gospel. Catch a sneak preview here!
What’s all the Buzz About?
The Bible Bee helps families to establish a life-long pattern of discipleship in God's Word. All of the materials and events are designed to be enjoyable and family-centered as they encourage, recognize, and reward diligence in Bible study, Scripture memorization, and prayer. Contestants learn to inductively study a designated book of the Bible through the Bible Bee's exclusive "Sword Studies" and memorize Scripture with the help of their Bible Memory cards. See what students are saying about their Bible Bee experience in this short preview.
On August 1st, students will be challenged in both Bible Memory and Bible Knowledge through an online Written Test. The 360 top-scoring contestants from around the nation are then invited to compete in the National Contest, which is held in the fall. Winners at Nationals take home $350,000 in cash and scholarships as well as other awards.
The Bible Bee on August 23rd 2014 was a success! Thirty-three children came for the written exam, and 7 qualified for Nationals. Katherine Braymer and Daniel Dalley, Primary Division. Cosette Kirsch, Junior Division. Matthew Minica, Courtney Minica, Hannah Del Toro, Isabelle Ingalls, Senior Division.
