Bible students advance tor regional drill
Four Monette First Baptist Church students participated in a Church Level Bible Drill Sunday night, Feb. 17. They included Conner McCord, Lilie Hatch, Harris McCord and Dylan Stewart.
The Bible Drill program is designed to help fourth though sixth graders increase their knowledge of the Bible, develop skills in handling the Bible, and expand memory skills.
Students must give 12 or more correct responses in the church drill in order to advance to the regional drill. All four students qualified to move on to the regional drill, which will be held at West View Baptist Church, in Paragould, at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22.
Participants from the seven regional drills will be required to give 16 or more correct responses in order to advance to the state drill, called Xtreme Blast. The state drill will be held from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at the Park Hill Baptist Church, NLR, with lunch provided. Any student who does not have more than four mistakes in the state drill will be named a state winner.
