Waypoints give kids wisdom for life from the Bible
In navigation, waypoints are a place to stop or change course on your journey. When life gets confusing, God’s Word is like a powerful GPS guide, helping you stop and think about the right way to go. In Chapel Hill's Waypoints Bible Memory program, kids earn tickets for prizes with every verse they store up in their hearts! Extra tickets if parents learn it, too.
Discovery Bay puppets Dawg, Tug, Daisy and Scoop come to the stage twice a month face challenges as they learn the verse, too. This year, there's a the new guy at the Bait Shop, Obie! You can watch all the episodes online, too! Just scroll down this page.
Waypoints verses may be recited any Saturday Night or Sunday Morning in exchange for Red Tickets to spend on candy and prizes at the Waypoints cart. Children who memorize all this year's verses will be awarded a Waypoints medal!
