A special event…

Good morning. A very special quiz match just took place

3 cousins are quizzers from two different teams (from Arizona and Florida) and were competing in a match against each other today. Their grandparents are here and able to watch them compete.  The grandparents are from Florida and this was a once in a lifetime event where the cousins teams are in the same level at Nationals.

Congratulations to the quizzers, parents, and grandparents. Ask around and see who won! Actually they all win when they are at Nationals.

Important MEAL Announcement!!

Good afternoon. We need to let everyone know that for the meal on Saturday everyone must have a meal ticket. And this ticket must be presented when you pick up your meal. Today a large number of people went through the line without handing in their tickets. This is causing issues with the host church, so please be sensitive to the needs of our hosts.

Thank you.

Welcome to the Festival!!

Good morning. It is 7:30 AM, the festival team is in high gear getting ready for the arrival of 80 teams, helpers are heading to their rooms, and excitement is running high as we start the process of crowning a National JBQ Champion.

Pray for all the kids, coaches, families and friends that the day and quizzing go well.

Follow the festival at the following locations:

Good luck to everyone.

JBQ National Day of Prayer

Thursday, June 7 is our monthly day of prayer for Junior Bible Quiz.  This month, please pray for the National JBQ Festival which will be June 7-9.  Pray for our Festival Coordinator, Pastor Barry Jorris and the other Festival leadership.  Pray for everyone attending the National Festival:  for the quizzers, coaches, officials, Festival staff, church staff, vendors, and spectators; for God to fill us with His Spirit so that we may demonstrate his love and grace to each other.   Finally, please pray God’s blessing on our host church, Faith Assembly of God in Orlando, FL.  God bless all of you!

Parking information for teams and guests…

Good evening.

Team check-in will happen in the Atrium which you can access from Lot 2 and Lot 6. However, we need people to park in Lot 4, 5 and 6. PLEASE DO NOT PARK in Lot 2. This is important to help with the church guests because church work hours are still happening  on Thursday and Friday.

Festival ceremonies will be in the Youth Sanctuary. The better lots to access this are Lots 4 and 5.

Thank you

Michael Paulsen
