Also, by clicking on the following link (Verse List), you will find a list of the verses and key passages that the kids will be learning this year. The children should already have this verse/key passage list on the Green card that they received the first night of Bible Drill.
In order for your child to have a successful year of Bible Drill, it is important that you help them and encourage them as they learn the verses, key passages, and books. I know it can be difficult to keep up with the papers that we send home each with assignments, so I have included two PDF documents on this blog that list the content we will be learning each week. Feel free to download and print this for yourself and/or your child.

Lastly, while they are learning/memorizing Bible Drill content, remember to talk about the verse meanings and key passage themes with your children. Our hope is that the kids not only memorize the words of Scripture, but also apply these truths to their lives. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
