Scripture Memory Program, 2017-2018 — “Less Talk, More Action”

 

This year’s Scripture Memory Program, administered by the Christian Education Council, is centered on our General Conference’s theme for the year as selected by Conference President, Rev. Dave Stall: “Less Talk, More Action.” As has been the case in recent years, those participating can begin either in the month of September or October. The material below reports the verses regardless of the month you choose to begin. Program brochures are available for download from the General Conference’s website: www.seventhdaybaptist.org/scripturememory. Individuals who complete the program receive a certificate honoring their accomplishment, and member churches of the Conference are eligible for additional recognition depending on their level of participation. Reporting is due by early July.
