To All Bible Bowl Coaches and Parents,

Coastal Bend Bible Bowl will be here soon! The Book of Acts 15-28 will be a lot of fun to study!
 I hope you, your students and all parents will grow spiritually during these studies in coming
weeks. Thank you for your commitment to young people and remember that your commitment
will bless the lives of each child you have in your care. You are also helping the church of the
present and future! I encourage you to keep up the great work!

Young people are looking for direction and it’s up to us to show them how God's Word provides
the direction they need. Bible Bowl can serve as a tool to help them understand and live the
Word of God. Remember David's words found in Psalm 119:105, "Thy word is a lamp unto
my feet, and a light unto my path." Let's do our best to make that verse come to life for each
child involved with Bible Bowl.

Do not underestimate your children's amazing memories! At one Christian school third graders
memorize Hebrews 11. I have known 3 and 4 year olds who know the Books of the Bible, the
Ten Commandments, and up to 100 basic Bible facts, among other things. Do not put limits on
them. Challenge and encourage them. Their confidence and desire will grow as they learn.

As in past years, this study guide focuses on leading each student through the Bible. If your
students follow this guide, they will gain knowledge and understanding. All scripture will be
taken from the New King James Version. Also, there may be questions which are answered by
using other study materials such as dictionaries, commentaries, etc.

Here are ideas to use in preparing for Bible Bowl:
       (1)    Meet at least one time per week (try not to over-work the students, especially at
       (2)    Use "grease pencils" to color code the scripture: Blue-important quotes,
              Yellow-names, Orange-verse numbers, Green-places, Red or pink-objects and
              other nouns;
       (3)    Encourage parents to help in study.
       (4)    Make a schedule to follow to cover a certain amount of material per week.
       (5)    Split up students to have practice contests or tests.
       (6)    Compliment them in front of the congregation, in the bulletin, in front of parents,
       (7)    Remind them that this is not a school grade and whatever they learn will help
              them in life and for eternity.
       (8)    Make use of the website with practice questions (http://bb.theseeker.org)

Whether each student knows everything does not matter.       Encourage each young person to
participate November 6, 2010.

Enjoy your study of Acts 15-28 and I hope your lives and your students will be enriched over the
next few months.
                                                           In Christ,
                                                           Mark Hammitt (Director)
A Note to All Bible Bowlers:

Bible Bowl can be so much fun if you get involved is studying God’s Word. It will be as
much fun and fulfilling as you make it! This is my 21st Bible Bowl and, as always, I'm
looking forward to seeing you in November.

This year we will have many awards to give out and that means if you study and do well,
you have a very good chance of receiving a trophy, ribbon or plaque. No matter what
you receive or don’t receive, you study and commitment will benefit you always. The
book of Acts is a great study from which you will grow if you apply it daily. Remember,
no matter how you do, you will be learning God’s Word.

As you study try not only to know the facts - try to understand what is going on. This
study guide is designed to aid your study. Here are a few tips in studying for Bible

       (1)    Read the Bible without your study guide. Take short notes or write down
              words and items you do not understand.
       (2)    Look at the guide and see if it helps you understand (if not, ask your
              parents, coach, teacher or preacher).
       (3)    The older participants will have an open Bible section. Each participant
              will be expected to find the chapter and verse in which certain scriptures
              are found. Bring your Bible for this section.
       (4)    You are allowed to mark in your Bible if you wish.
       (5)    Look up any words that you do not understand.
       (6)    Do not get discouraged.
       (7)    Remember to include prayer in your study.
       (8)    High School will have an “extra” matching section over the study guide,
              the biblical text and the Chapter Headings at the end of the study guide.
       (9)    Use the website with practice questions (http://bb.theseeker.org)

You have a great mind, if you use it and that’s what Bible Bowl can do for you. You
will never be sorry for taking the time to study the Bible because it can help you for the
rest of your life. The more you know, the better off you will be. Here is a verse, 2
Timothy 2:15 that you should remember as you study, "Do your best to present
yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed
and who correctly handles the word of truth."

In Christ,

Mark Hammitt
