Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis - 12 part video series offered Sunday mornings (8:45 am) and again on Wednesday evenings (5:30 p.m.)

On May 31st a new bible study began: “Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis” a 12-episode video series that is presented before Sunday Services (8:45 AM) and repeated on Wednesday evenings (5:30 pm) in lieu of the usual Adult Bible Study during the summer. This series discusses scientific evidence for the Biblical Creation and a number of other current topics, here is a list of the episodes:

3. What is Man? (Where did humans come from and why are they unique?) - June 14th & June 17th
4. Buried Clues (What does the fossil record and other evidence say about the history of life on earth?) - June 21st & June 24th
5. Flood or Fiction? (What does the evidence say about a world-wide flood?) - June 28th & July 1st
6. How old is the Earth? (Why is this question so important?) - July 5th & July 8th
7. Dinosaurs! (Many questions answered including “Did the dinosaurs really become extinct before humans existed?”) - July 12th & 15th

12. Science and Scripture (Has science replaced the need for the Bible?) - Aug 16th & 19th

Children, especially from sixth grade through college are encouraged to attend. Why? Because many anti-Christian topics such as evolution, science in favor of faith, relativism (no need for absolutes), God does not exist, etc. are being taught as truth in many schools today. Even though your kids are being taught or have been taught about creation, sin, Jesus, salvation, the nature of God, etc. they are confronted (or in some cases being bombarded) by these contrary teachings throughout the week. Unfortunately by their first year in college, or perhaps sooner, your child's beliefs may be compromised resulting in them potentially losing their faith in Jesus and the Bible. This series provides a professional and yet entertaining way to educate your children (and of course ourselves, we need to know how to answer these questions too).

We will be showing one episode per week plus we will present the same episode on the following Wednesday (time to be determined) for those that could not attend the Sunday morning viewing. This series was created by the Institute for Creation Research (icr.org) a Christian based scientific research organization focused on supporting Biblical creation.
