According to Amos 2:14, What shall the mighty not deliver?
According to Hosea 12:6, So you (Jacob), by the help of your God, observe two things. What are they?
These are some of the questions youth participating in this year's Pathfinder Bible Experience may be called on to answer.
Last weekend, Pathfinder teams throughout the Lake Union gathered to test their knowledge on the following books: Ezra, Nehemiah, Hosea, Jonah, and Micah, plus the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary introduction to each study book.
“The books of study are very difficult this year. This is the feedback I’m getting throughout our conference,” said Trish Thompson, administrative assistant for the Indiana Conference Youth Department.
There are four levels of advancement: Area, Conference, Union and Division. Grading is done on a curve, depending on the highest scoring team, and clubs advance based on how they score.
Most of the conference testing happens March 7 (see details below). The Union PBE testing is March 21 in Berrien Springs, Michigan and the NAD Division Finals takes place April 17-18, 2020 in Salem, Oregon.
Lake Union Pathfinder clubs advancing to the Conference level are:
Conference level testing: Sabbath, Feb. 29; Richland Bridge Church, Chillicothe, Illinois
Conference level testing: Sabbath, Feb. 29; Indiana Academy, Cicero, Indiana
Conference level testing: March 7-8; Niles Philadelphia Church, Niles, Michigan
Conference level testing: March 7 at 2 p.m; Cedar Lake Church
Conference level testing: Sabbath, Mar. 7; Green Bay Church, Green Bay, Wisconsin
