Churches in west Georgia will gather in Carrollton to test their knowledge of scripture during an interfaith Bible Quiz Bowl on July 15.
The quiz bowl will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Dr. Tracy P. Stallings Community Center. The event is being hosted by Overcomers Christian Center in partnership with Tanner Health System’s Faith in Health committee, which is part of the Get Healthy, Live Well Coalition, a multi-sector community coalition working to increase access to healthy food, increase physical activity, reduce chronic disease risks and eliminate tobacco use in Carroll, Haralson and Heard counties.
The Faith in Health committee churches include A Place of Refuge, Agape of God Ministry, Inc., Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, Church Without Walls, Covenant Word Ministry, First Baptist Church of Bowdon, First Baptist Church of Carrollton, First Baptist Church of Villa Rica, Friendship Baptist Church, Overcomers Christian Center, Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church, Southern Hills Christian Church, Tabernacle Baptist Church and Word of Truth.
Along with showcasing their knowledge of the Bible, participants will vie for the prestigious “Hallelujah Cup.” The double elimination tournament features four-person teams. The winning teams will advance to play in two semi-final games.
During the final round, one team will be named champions of the Get Healthy, Live Well Bible Quiz Bowl. The tournament will also include a Children’s Bible Bee. All children in attendance are welcome to participate.
The event is free to the public. The Faith in Health committee is asking adults to donate at least $1, which will support the Bremen Food and Clothing Bank.
“The Bible Quiz Bowl is the third of four events the Faith in Health committee is hosting this year to promote spiritual, physical and mental health in the community,” said Get Healthy, Live Well Community Outreach Coordinator Phyllis Head. “The quiz bowl will give the faith-based community the opportunity to exercise their minds while engaging in some friendly competition.”
In March, Tabernacle Baptist Church in partnership with the Faith in Health committee hosted the Hoops for Health Basketball Challenge. In January, Southern Hills Christian Church hosted the Resolution Run 5K in partnership with the Faith in Health committee. A healthy tailgate cooking competition is planned later in the fall.
