The Bible Quiz-o-Rama is over and one church stood holding the trophy.
By Sentinel Newswire
On Saturday, May 14, the Los Angeles Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) churches of Los Angeles County once again came together for the annual Bible Quiz-o-Rama challenge at Los Angeles Adventist Academy (LAAA). This year, the winning answer was “E” and the Berean SDA Church took 1st Place, with Normandie SDA Church in 2nd Place, and 3rd Place was tied between Smyrna SDA Church and Tamarind Ave. SDA Church.
Linda Mackey, first lady of Rainbow SDA Church in San Francisco, served as Quizmaster over the challenge as she has done for many years. She took over from her father, the late Elder Earl Canson, Regional Director of the Pacific Union, who started the annual quiz-o-rama over 40 years ago.
There were a total of 13 teams representing their churches in attendance: Smyrna SDA Church, 54St SDA Church, Rolling Hills SDA Church, Miramonte SDA Church, Valley Crossroads SDA Church, Tamarind Ave. SDA Church, Compton Community SDA Church, Normandie Ave. SDA Church, Breath of Life SDA Church, Philadelphia SDA Church, Antelope Valley SDA Church, University SDA Church and Berean SDA Church.
Adolphus Garnett, the Greater Los Angeles Region Director, continued to show his support for the quiz-o-rama. David Zade, Youth Pastor of Philadelphia SDA Church, served as the Master of Ceremonies for the event. Pastor Lawrence S. Dorsey, Sr., Senior Pastor of Berean SDA Church, and First Lady, Beverly Dorsey supported and rallied for the church team.
The book of Romans was the subject of this year’s quiz-o-rama. All the teams were required to study the entire book of Romans in conjunction with material from SDA prophet, Ellen White.
Congratulations to the Berean SDA Bible Quiz-o-Rama team: Nicole Tobin (Team Captain), Erica Tobin, Rudy Tobin, Cecelee Sutherland, Glen Samuel Shangari, Glenn Flores, Jasmine Kellum, Veronique McMillian, Shardel Hodge and Brian W. Carter.
Berean SDA church is located at 4211 West Adams Blvd in Los Angeles, CA 90018-2228. You may contact the church at (323) 735-0228
*Correction: There was a mistake in the paper naming 54thSt SDA Church as being tied with Tamarind SDA Church. It was Smyrna SDA Church that was tied for 3rd Place with Tamarind SDA Church.
