March 6-13, 2021
The Hybrid Bible Quiz will take place Saturday, March 13, 2021 from 9 am till noon*. Why the asterisks? Read on, there is some flexibility built in!
Churches have the option to quiz as early as March 6, 2021, including quizzing during the club night. However, all quiz responses are due by 11 am GMT -6 (Central) on March 13. Most US churches in Central and Eastern time zones will quiz on March 13. However, churches in GMT - 7, (Mountain) -8 (Pacific), -9 (Alaska) and -10 (Hawaii-Aleutian) will want to quiz either on March 6 or mid-week. Churches in Europe can easily quiz on March 13, but also have the same flexible format.
How it works!
Some churches are meeting in person. Some churches are meeting virtually. Some have developed innovative ways to combine the two. How do we organize an event that brings people together when we are asked to establish physical distance between people?
Multiply Ministries comes alongside churches to equip them in developing disciple-makers. Therefore, as a means to support churches who are reaching children and youth through Awana, we have developed a hybrid system for a Bible Quiz.
When a church registers to participate in our Hybrid Bible Quiz, their clubbers and youth will be invited to quiz on stage, in their own church, with their family and friends gathered together to cheer them on! However, instead of 500 people from across the region squeezing together in pews, there is more room for the families and friends of your Awana families to gather, with six or more feet of space all around them. The Hybrid Bible Quiz also allows for churches who would ordinarily pile into vans and travel to a quiz to avoid the tight quarters of the church bus.
Quiz questions will be provided to the church by March 5, midnight GMT -6 (US Central time). Each church will provide a reader for the questions, and a score keeper for each team. At the end of the round, the score keeper, or another appointed volunteer, will enter the responses of the team into our online data base before 11 am. These responses will be auto graded. We will rank the teams according to their scores, and announce the winners by 11:30 am. The teams in the top 10% of each category will recieve a medal, which will be mailed to the church to award.
Each registered church will be provided a digital kit with study guides, volunteer job descriptions, quiz questions, a video for the gospel presentation, and a video for the offering designed to support that church's Awana missionary. The digital kit will also include program samples, editable digital slides, and ideas such as how to create quizzing paddles and dry erase boards.
