Each Saturday students will be given a Bible reading sheet to complete during the week that they can turn in the following Saturday for points. The reading sheet has two sections to complete – one for reading the Bible and one for prayer.
Reading Section: The reading sheet will have the selection of the Bible to read that week. The Primary/Juniors class will be using the NIRV (New International Readers Version.) The Earliteen class will be using the NLT (New Living Translation Bible) version. The reading sheets are to be taken home and completed over the week. It is recommended for the students in Primary to read it with a parent. At the end of the sheet there is a question to fill out about what they read.
Prayer Section: There is also a checkbox to mark after they have spent at least 5 minutes during the week to pray. This would be a specific time the students set aside during the week for focused prayer. Praying at meals, bedtime, just because something is lost, etc. doesn’t count towards the 5 minutes.
At the bottom of the sheet is a line for the parent / guardian and student to sign. This verifies that the student read the story, completed the answer part, and spent at least 5 minutes
in prayer during the week. Please make sure it is completely signed! If the sheet is not signed by both the parent / guardian and child then the child will not be able to earn a point for it.
Due Date: The Bible Reading sheet is due at the beginning of Sabbath School class time the following week. Sheets turned in after the other sheets have already been collected will not count for points even if they are completed and signed. After a sheet is turned in the student can place a sticker next to their name on the leaderboard and earn 1 point. (1 sticker = 1 point)
The reading sheets will be available in the Bible Reading Sheets section on this site in case they are lost or if the student was not at Sabbath School to receive it. All reading sheets must be handed in by the student during Sabbath School though to receive the point. Past reading sheets from previous weeks can not be turned in late for points.
It should only take about 15 minutes to complete the reading and prayer sections.
Students will earn points throughout the quarter by participating in the activities. At the end of the quarter points can be redeemed for prizes and the students who earned enough points will also qualify for the raffle of a gift card. There will be one gift card raffled in each class.
Students will receive the Bible reading sheets starting with the first Sabbath in April.
Each Bible Warriors session will begin with the new Sabbath School quarter and end with 13th Sabbath.
