Church Weekday Education Conference

Due to the uncertainty of the timeframe concerning the pandemic, our Church Weekday Conference will not meet July 31, 2020. Training our early education teachers is so very important to better insure their classroom success.

To assist our members and centers, we will be providing video training seminars from some of our most requested speakers. The training videos will be free of charge. These speakers have volunteered their time and experience to invest in you.

Bible Skills / Bible Drills

The 2020 Bible Drills are using the Green Cycle. Materials can be purchased here.

Dear Bible Drill Leaders,

I am sure your children were close to learning all the verses and key passages for Bible Drill when we stopped meeting. I am practicing with our kids over Zoom and I hope to have the Church Bible Drill in August when it is safe to meet again. I want to encourage you as leaders to stay in touch with your Bible Drill kids and push them to practice their verses and host a Bible Drill when school starts. I know we are unsure about timing and all we can do is follow the guidelines we care given but we can make plans now to come back with greater anticipation if we are planning a Bible Drill Celebration.

This year, because of the quarantine, we will provide to you the written State Bible Drill (Green Cycle) to host a Church Bible Drill before August 31, 2020. If any child has at least 20 correct calls, they will also be awarded the Oklahoma State Bible Drill medal.

Please contact our office to request a digital copy of the written State Bible Drill. You must host an “in person” Church Bible Drill by August 31, 2020 to be eligible for the state award.

Helping our kids focus on God’s word during this time apart is a great idea. Will you join me in this effort?

Your Friend,

Mark Jones
