For Set ReMgton on Photos by Timothy Ramsey Youth missionaries compete in a Bible Bowl at the Forsyth County Missionary Union monthly meeting on Sunday, Oct. 25. Missionary Union uses Bible Bowl to teach BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY FOR THE CHRONICLE When the Forsyth County Missionary Union met for its monthly meeting, it was full of questions. The highlight of the meeting was the Bible Bowl, which matched youth from different churches against one another in a Jeopardy-style quiz game. The winner of the event on Sunday Oct. 25 at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church was the host church of Friendship Baptist. The Bible Bowl has been an annual part of the Missionary Union for over 25 years. "It was a great event, everyone took a positive message, and learned a lot about Jesus," said Youth Missionary President James Huntley. He said he wanted to become president of the Youth Missionary Union "because it's a positive organ ization that deals with kids my age and younger, and I've seen the offi cers and they seem to be great role models for youth trying to make a positive change in the world." Joycelyn Johnson, who was the moderator for the Bible Bowl said, "We looked at ways to try and encourage the young people to do team building, assist with conflict resolution, and more importantly to help with the opportunity to do reli gious Christian development." The seniors competed in their own Bible Bowl competition. Mars Hill Baptist Church was the winner. "We encouraged the seniors to work along with the young people and to get them to think outside of the box." said Johnson about the Bible Bowl. The Missionary Union is made up of individuals from Baptist churches throughout Forsyth County. The union fellowships with one another, and are involved with missions with in individual churches and the com munity, as well as philanthropic endeavors throughout Forsyth County.
