Bible Quiz League on the western Slope
 
Bible Quizzing is fun, it's fellowship, it's competitive, it's inspirational, it's starting on the Western Slope!

Gary Culp, pastor at The Grand Mesa Bible Church in Delta wants to know about other churches that would like to participate with others in establishing a Bible Quiz league for the Western Slope. Many churches do not presently participate because it involves travel to the Front Range. The target date for the first competition on the Western Slope is November 8th. Teams will compete over the first two chapters of the book of James. There is no cost until a team desires to buy quiz equipment or officially join the league.If you have more questions, contact Gary Culp on his cell phone at 497-0800, email at pastorgaryc@gmail.com or Grand Mesa Bible Church at 874-8315
