August 25th - April 26th, 2018
Registration for Bible Drill 2017-2018
What is bible drill? It is a program designed to help motivate children to want to increase their knowledge of the Bible with the added element of competition.
Who can participate? Any 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th grader
When does bible drill class meet? • We will have a Kick-Off on August 25th with a short parent meeting at 5:30 PM and activities for children until 10 PM. • We will meet regularly on Sunday afternoons at 4pm on the 2nd Floor of the Children’s Building.
What will my child learn in Bible Drill Class? • Students will increase their knowledge of the Bible. • Students will learn the names of the books of the bible in the proper order and be able to locate them in his / her bible. • Students will memorize 25 verses and their references. • Students will memorize the titles and references of 10 key passages and be able to locate the passage in his / her bible.
Will my child need to practice / study outside of bible drill class? Yes. Your child will learn a lot during the bible drill class; however, he / she will need to practice at home. This does not require a large amount of time, but it does take effort.
How you can help: • Be proactive in working with your child on the weekly memorization schedule. • Work on Books of the Bible and Key passages while driving in the car. • Spend a few minutes each night quizzing your child by using the scripture card.
When are the drills? Drills will be held in April at three levels: Church (April 18), Associational (April 22 @ Calvary Baptist Church), and State (April 26 @ FBC Starkville).
How much does Bible Drill cost? This year, we are asking families to pay $25. This will cover expenses and meals for the Sundays that Bible Drill will meet at 4 PM with the seasonal adult study meeting at 5:30 PM (October 15-November 12 and the January Bible Study).

High School Retreat
September 30th - October 1st, 2017

Theme: True North Each of us have a race to run. Many times the difficulty is figuring out which direction we are to run. You’ll discover your true north as we dive into the life of Joseph. His life is a serious of peaks and valleys, but through it all he discovers that God is with him, and even the obstacles he faces are shaping him into the man that God designed for him to be.
Theme Verse: Genesis 39:21 But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
