State Bible Drill finals postponed
The Baptist General Convention of Texas has postponed its state Bible Drill finals, which were to be held this weekend.
The convention has moved the competition in the wake of the Swine Flu issues that have been swirling in the state. The move comes as other Texas agencies have postponed or cancelled events due to the Swine Flu. The state University Interscholastic League has postponed or cancelled many extracurricular activities.
“Our children are our greatest asset,” said BGCT Discipleship Specialist Dickie Dunn. “We’ve decided to push back the Bible Drill finals to a later date when we know our children can gather in a healthy environment. At that point, we look forward to coming together and celebrating the hard work these young people have put in all year in preparation for this competition.”
The event tentatively has been rescheduled for May 15-16 at the Baptist Building in Dallas. Future updates will be found at www.bgct.org
