On June 14, our Junior and Senior Bible Bee participants gathered for an enriching and insightful session. Like the primary division, the meeting was filled with deep discussions, engaging activities, and practical applications of scripture. Here are the highlights from our latest meeting:

Perfect Oral Recitation Champions

We took a moment to acknowledge and play a special video of the Memory Verse Marathon Week 1 Champions. This inspiring video showcased students who excelled in memorizing and reciting their verses, motivating everyone to keep memorizing their memory verses.

Memory Verse Marathon 2 (Week 2)

For Memory Verse Marathon 2 (Week 2), all students will orally recite the previous and the current week's memory passages in our host's Bible Bee LMS. A family member will need to announce their students' scores. This aims to embed the "Recite and Repeat" memorization routine in all our Bible Bee participants in preparation for the NBBC and our August 3 Proclaim! Day at the Museum of the Bible.

 

Below is a sample entry of the Memory Verse Marathon from Jonathon Sanford. Listen to Jonathon and his mom.

 

Junior Small Group Discussion

During the small group discussions, led by dedicated Bible Bee parent volunteers, the children delved into the reflection and application questions from the Unit 2 study passage (John 13:1-38). Here’s a summary of what the Juniors learned:

Unit 2 Junior Small Group

Jesus Washes the Disciples' Feet (John 13:1-17)

Lesson on Humility and Servanthood: The Juniors learned about the importance of serving others with humility, even in positions of authority. They shared personal experiences of serving others and reflected on how it felt to prioritize someone else’s needs.

 

Application: They discussed how to apply this lesson in their daily lives, particularly in their relationships at school and home.

A New Commandment (John 13:34-35)

Lesson on Love: The Juniors explored Jesus' command to love others as He has loved us. They shared instances where they showed love to someone, even when it was difficult, and how it impacted those situations.

 

Application: They reflected on how they can grow in loving others unconditionally and thought about recent situations where showing love was challenging.

Peter's Promise (John 13:36-38)

Lesson on Faith and Perseverance: The Juniors discussed Peter’s confidence and subsequent denial of Jesus, relating it to times when their faith was tested.

 

Application: They considered how to strengthen their faith and prepare for future challenges through prayer, scripture, and community support.

Unit 2 Senior Small Group

Senior Small Group Discussion

Application: They reflected on their roles at school, at home, and in the community, considering how to embody humility and servant leadership in these areas.

Living Out Jesus' Love (John 13:34-35)

Faith in the Face of Adversity (John 13:36-38)

Application: They reflected on past experiences of compromised beliefs, considering how to strengthen their faith and prepare to respond with conviction in future situations through practices like prayer, Bible study, and community involvement.

Scripture Sprint Top Ten Champions

The Scripture Sprint, like the Gospel Gladiator Weekly Timed Test, reviews Unit 2, Lessons 1 to 5, and serves as test preparation for the August 9th National Bible Bee Qualifying Test and our August 3rd Proclaim Day competitions at the Museum of the Bible. We prepared weekly questions that reinforced the unit's lessons. Watch the video above.

Gospel Gladiator Timed Test

We also encouraged the students to finish their Gospel Gladiator weekly timed tests. These tests are a great way to test their knowledge and prepare for the NBBC Qualifying Test and the Proclaim! Day contest at our August 3rd Museum of the Bible event.

 

The names and scores of the top 15% of students (85% and above) are displayed on our host's Bible Bee page weekly.

Bible Bee Parent Volunteers

A special thanks to the Bible Bee parents who stepped up to lead the small groups. Your dedication and support were instrumental in creating an engaging and respectful discussion environment.

We are so blessed by all our Bible Bee families' insights and enthusiasm, and we look forward to continuing this journey of faith and discovery together.
