Great times!

Well, I hope that all of you who were able to attend enjoyed all the fun at Quizmania.  I know that it'll take me a LONG time to forget Scott and Jeremy's battle in MINUTE TO WIN IT!!  And the group that quizzed over chapter 2--the finals coming down to question 20!  Awesome! I've added the pictures and we'll try to have some stats available shortly.   I hope that it got everybody into quiz mode, and you're excited to start this year.  For those of you who couldn't be there, I hope to see you in September, as we dive in to the gospel of John, learn who Jesus is, and have several more terrific times together this season. 

September 11 will be our first official quiz over John 1-3.  We will be meeting at Joliet 1st at 8:30 for registration, with quizzing starting promptly at 9 am.  The cost is $3 per quizzer and you need to register online by NOON September 9th.  If you are new to online registration, please email me and i'll do my best to get you all set up. 

See you soon, and remember, Jesus came to be in your situation.

looking for a few good people

Posted 06 Jul, 2010 11:00 PM by Ron

As we continue to focus on creating serious followers of Jesus:  I am looking for coaches, quizzers, officials, parents and anyone else who may be interested in writing short devotionals for our webpage.  We would like to post a new one once a week, and it can be from what you're learning in John to anything else you come across while on your journey with Jesus.  If you can be one of those people, email me, we'd love to get you involved.

We're looking for a few other people too...aside from devotion writers, we are also in need of forum moderators (2), and recreation coordinators -to plan hang out events like 4-square following the september, november, january and march quizzes,  and people willing to share testimonies and devotions during quiz meets.
