The “Pastor’s Advance” is coming October 11-14 at Twin Rocks Friends Camp.  You may remember that our theme for NWYM this year is “Moving Forward.”  The Pastor’s Advance is a  leadership retreat for pastors and spouses that will provide an opportunity for the sharing of best ministry practices and for spiritual refreshment, helping us continue to “move forward” together as Friends.  
Bible Quizzing Season
The Bible Quizzing Season is right around the corner where Romans will be studied!  If you are interested in starting a Bible Quizzing Team at your church, there is a grant to help with start-up costs provided by the Board of Christian Education. To apply, complete the application.

Bible Quizzing encourages study and memorization, as well as fellowship and friendly competition. Bible Quizzing is highly adaptable for large or small churches and is a fantastic way to bring youth together.
