Pathfinders Memorize Gods Treasure
Washington Conference hosted the union level challenge of the Bible Achievement Program where young people in grades five through ten memorize selected portions of the Bible.
This year each six-member team—plus an alternate—memorized the book of Matthew. All teams participate in an area level challenge where a score of 90 percent is needed to achieve first place. Teams who achieve first place are eligible for advancing to the conference and union levels.
A record 16 teams attended in Washington; 13 teams earned division level eligibility. They joined the ranks for the national part at Andrews University, to make the highest total yet—45 teams. All 13 teams representing the NPUC achieved a first place rating.
This is the sixth year for the Chehalis Mountaineers to participate and the fourth year to receive a first place distinction at the division level.
