Fresno Bible Quiz Day!

Our church's Bible Quiz Team qualified for nationals in June.  With all of the excitement of summer, I haven't had chance to congratulate them.  In July they went to the National Bible Quiz Tournament in Oklahoma.  All of their hard work paid off and they became the National Bible Quiz Champs of 2013.  Not only did they bring that honor home, Keith Klann (sitting to the left) was National Bible Quizzer of the Year and our coach, Leonard Contreras (standing to the left) was National Bible Quiz Coach of the Year.  The highest honors you can receive at the National level.  We are so proud of our team and the fantastic job they did!




Not long after returning home, The Fresno Bee did an article in the paper about our team and you can find it here.  From that, the City Council of Fresno contacted our team and asked them to come to a meeting to honor them.  Today was that day.

They declared it Fresno Bible Quiz Team Day.  How cool is that!!!



This is a day that these young men will probably never forget!  I am very proud to say that you are from our church! Congratulations guys....you're awesome!
