Sword Drill Center
This is a place to practice using your sword (God’s word). Practice finding memory verses and Bible books. Always be prepared to talk about God’s word and what it teaches about how to live. Who do we fight for? Jesus! What do we fight with? The Bible! What do we fight against? Satan, Sin, & Death!
Use the center:
There are 3 kinds of drills, and all 3 are called in the same way:
- Attention!—Your hands should be at your sides, Bible closed, and cupped on binding of Bible.
- Draw swords!–Hold your Bible out – 1 hand on top and 1 below – no fingers on pages.
- “Charge!”—Find the reference called.
Quotation Drill (quote from memory):
1: One person gives the reference.
2: If you know the verse, step forward 1 step, then be ready to quote the verse and give the reference if you are called upon
Completion Drill (quote from memory):
1: The teacher reads part of the verse
2:If you can complete the verse, step forward 1 step, then be ready to quote the verse and give the reference.
Book Drill (Bible is used)
1: Any book in the Bible may be used
2: The leader calls a book of the Bible (ex. Exodus)
3: After calling “Charge”, find any page in the book called, place your finger on the page, and step forward.
4:If the teacher calls on you, give the name of the book before the one called, the book called, and the book after the one called. (ex. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus).
