WHAT ARE WORD WEIRDOS?
WORD WEIRDOS are trading cards that help us memorize Bible verses! Each card has a 'specific memory verse' on the front and a 'bonus verse' on the back.
HOW DO I GET THEM? DO THEY COST ANYTHING?
WORD WEIRDOS are FREE! Each Sunday before class/church, kids (or kids at heart) can visit the Word Weirdos booth to recite (not read) their memory verses to earn cards . For each memory verse recited correctly, you get to draw a card from the drawstack! *LIMIT 2 CARDS/VERSES PER SUNDAY, memory verses must include book, chapter & verse number.
WHAT IF I WANT A SPECIFIC CARD LIKE 'SENOR FLUFFBALL'?
Memorize and recite the specific memory verse from that card and choose to get that specific card instead of drawing a random card from the drawstack.
WHAT IF I DRAW A CARD THAT I ALREADY HAVE?
If you get 'doubles' of a card (or just get a weirdo you don't want) --TRADE IT with other kids or with any of the teachers (COLLECTOR HINT: teachers usually have cards that are 'rare' and not available in the draw stack)!
WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE SAME CARD?
Some cards have 'VARIANTS'. These cards are harder to get because they are only available in the drawstack or through special events! (COLLECTOR HINT: Not all cards have variant editions, but a lot of cards have a 'black & white' variant that a lot of kids like to color to make their own unique 'variant'!)
HOW DO I KNOW THE 'SPECIFIC MEMORY VERSES' FOR SPECIFIC CHARACTERS?
You can look through the cards in the photo gallery on this page for all current cards, and our elementary students get a parent cue handout that has the upcoming memory verse/card name each Sunday in class We also post upcoming cards on our Facebook page and in the Gateway Kids Weekly Email.
