On the Junior team, Austin Parks won two third- place trophies and Nayzeth Ambrocia won two fourth-place trophies.

Our Bible quizzers have studied hard all season and now the finals are here, taking place on July 13-18 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Help us make Vandalia proud by sponsoring this fabulous group of quizzers.
Our beginners have learned 194 verses, our juniors have learned 292 verses, and our seniors have learned a whopping 412 verses. You can help sponsor our quizzers by attending our fundraiser car wash and bake sale being held on Saturday, June 28 beginning at 8 a.m. or donations can be mailed directly to the church at 908 East Highway 54, Vandalia. Also, as we have done in the past we are sending our Bible quizzers to the finals wearing shirts that proclaim who their sponsors are. If you have a business or are an individual who is interested in giving a donation and having your name printed on the shirts, please mail your contribution to the church at the address above. Thanks for your participation. Help us, help them and make Vandalia proud.
