Day one of finals is over, and so far its been fun!  Things have gone pretty smoothly, and something that could have been a tragedy as far as scheduling has been solved double time (thanks Karl!).  

 

I hope everyone is having a good time!

The final week.

Posted 02 Apr, 2010 02:29 AM by Ron

It's good friday, and our youth pastor this week reminded us to not just focus on the death, but on the actual meaning of the resurrection.  Now, I realize that for their to be resurrection there has to be death.  Pastor Joe talked about 1 Corinthians 15, and about the importance, and the hope that is found in resurrection.  I know a lot of quizzers struggle with this chapter, so I challenge you, in this final week, as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus that you find meaning in 1 Corinthians 15.  Talk to your coaches, find hope, and enjoy the promise of a risen savior!

See you all in a week!

Grace and Peace.

Final Countdown.

Posted 14 Mar, 2010 08:53 PM by Ron

25 days until district finals.  The countdown begins.  What chapters do you need to study?  How will you prepare?  I suggest having some fun reviewing.  Get together with another team and have a practice.  Learn a few memory verses.  if you learn 4 a day, you could know them all at finals...or even if you learned one a day, you maybe could get a few extra questions!  Maybe you could pick a few chapters to really study and focus on...

 

Congrats to Waukegan, Northside, Danville and Kankakee 1st for their participation and placement at the Indy Tournament.  A SUPER BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO EMMA WRIGHT who placed first and was awarded an $800 scholarship to Olivet.  Good job emma!!

Great Job to Manteno, Chicago Northside, and Kankakee 1st who all made the trip to the 35th annual sterling invitational tournament this weekend.  Everyone worked hard, cheered each other on, and had a great time!  Hopefully a few more teams will join us next year!

 

See everyone in a few weeks, and don't forget--you could still go to the Indy tournament!
