Valley-wide Multi-church

TRIVIA TOURNAMENT
— also known as Interdenominational Trivia Rumble —
JCC’s Trivia Event: Tue, April 7
3pm via Zoom

https://zoom.us/j/2113197275.


The Clergy of the Eastern Slope (our valley’s ecumenical group of ministers and churches) is taking up the challenge of Nativity Lutheran to hold trivia tournaments within our own faith communities. Then we send our winning church team into a valley-wide interdenominational trivia ‘rumble’ (sorta like March Madness, without courts, sneakers, or basketballs).

This is all handled in virtual, remote settings, of course! Please contact Trivia Captain Fred Tompkins if you’d like to be on a team! Winners may receive … prizes that resemble coveted items like toilet paper!Proposed format via Zoom:

  • Divide people into teams and use the breakout room feature in Zoom (sounds hard, but its easy, the Zoom host organizes all of this).
  • For each question we will give one minute’s deliberation.
  • The teams come back together and one person from each team reports the answer. 
  • Zoom Info (please RSVP to Fred Tompkins in advance so we’re prepared for participants) — Participate via Zoom app on computer, pad or smart phone: https://zoom.us/j/2113197275. Or dial in 929.436.2866 with Meeting ID: 211 319 7275.
