Freebie Friday #139: Bible memory verse tracking sheet

Free youth ministry resources every FridayBrent Lacy, Youth Pastor at Rockville First Baptist Church in Rockville, Indiana, contributes today’s Freebie Friday. Thanks, Brent!

He’s passing along a sheet his ministry uses to keep track of students’ bible memorization progress. His kids choose from between 2 or 3 verses every week to commit to memory and recite at either Sunday School, Sunday Night, or Wednesday Night (SS, SN, and WN on the sheet, respectively).

In case you’re wondering how the Bible memory system works at his church, here’s what he told me in his email:

It’s crazy stupid simple, but it works, and is easy to administrate. The youth are coming on board with it, because there is a nice study Bible waiting as a reward for each of the students that puts together a string of 52 verses. If the students lose it, they start over, so they are guarding their tracker sheets very closely.
