Adding Bible Trivia to a Presentation
Begin by navigating to the Add Item menu at the top of the screen and selecting the Bible Trivia service item. Choose a visual theme to style the appearance of the service item, then set the duration for however long you want the trivia to appear on screen.
Remember: members of your congregation can only answer Bible trivia while you're on air showing the trivia slide.
To answer trivia questions, first publish a bulletin of the presentation. A draft bulletin is created in your church group for every presentation in your presentation group. Navigate to your church group's page on Faithlife.com and select the Bulletins tab.
Click on the presentation that contains the Bible Trivia you want to present. At the top of the screen, select Publish.
Note: once you click Publish your bulletin will be available to all members of your church group.
Once published, anyone in your church group can view the digital bulletin and answer the trivia questions in real time while your presentation is on air.
For each correct answer a participant is awarded one point. These points are tallied on a leaderboard that is displayed periodically during the Bible Trivia service item's duration. Read on below to find out more about the leaderboard and how to interact with it.
