These nights kids are challenged to bring in their Buddy Barrels filled with money for missionaries.
Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ) was created and designed to help children develop a love for the Bible and an understanding that its truth can guide their lives daily. JBQ offers a fun, exciting way to motivate children to understand the all-important truths in God's Word. Through cooperative learning, children work together on teams to learn and understand the questions and answers from the Bible fact-Pak. Then using cooperative competition the children meet with other teams for a fun quizzing match. It has been said that JBQ is the fasting growing discipleship ministry in children's ministry.
