Of all the subjects we teach as children, there is none more important than guiding our children in their faith. This is one reason the FEAST Bible Bee has been such a blessing and encouragement to our families each year, and why we are offering it again August 8, 2015.
The Shelby Kennedy Foundation established the Bible Bee to encourage young people to grow in Christ through the study of the Bible and Scripture memorization. This event has become a tool to assist parents as they disciple their children through an in-depth study of the Word of God, memorization, and prayer all across the country. One family expressed their gratefulness for “the love for God's Word that I saw in our children as they studied and memorized the Bible. It is our desire that these Scriptures will guide them throughout their lives.”
Timeline: Registration opens April 1, Study begins on June 1, and the local FEAST contest will be held on August 8th.
Winners will advance to compete at the National Bible Bee in November.

What is the Bible Bee?
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.
The National Bible Bee begins June 1st as 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.
On August 8th, contestants and their families gather for FEAST’s local Bible Bee contest, a time of demonstrating diligence, proclaiming God's Word, and celebrating together in Christ. The competition challenges both Bible memory and Bible knowledge through a written test which takes place either at a local site with other families or online. 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 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.
