What is Quizzing?

We are Grade 6-12 students who attend the Metropolitan Bible Church in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.  We get together every week to study God’s Word, memorize it, and compete against one another to see who can answer Scripture questions first!  We have a lot of fun, travel to 4 different tournaments each year, and make friendships that last for eternity.  Come join the team and "hide God's Word in your heart."

Meeting and Contact:

We meet every Sunday from 1:00pm - 3:00pm.

Contact Phyllis or Jacques Farley for more information.

What We Do:

We memorize a minimum of 10 pre-determined verses per week.

We participate in 4 tournaments throughout the year.

Eligibility for Winternationals and International Competition is determined by performance during the year.

Get Involved:

We always have room for more team members and would love it if you could join us.  If you’re older than Grade 12, you can help by volunteering!  People are always needed to listen to verses or coach.
