We are excited for our third annual evening of Summer Seminars! There will be three topical seminars offered. Each seminar will be half an hour and everyone will be able to go to all three seminars! The seminars will discuss a topic that is relevant to our lives and the world we live in. At the same time there will be a movie night for kids ages 6 years through 5th grade downstairs in room 100A. You can sign up for the Seminars and Kid’s  PJ Movie Night today at the Welcome Center in the lobby on Sunday. Below are the topics for each of the seminars:

 

Bible DNA / Chris Blair / Room 206
Pastor Chris will be teaching a class on how the Bible is put together. We will take a brief overview of all the books of both the Old and New Testaments, and see how each of them fits together. Knowing this will be a valuable tool for using and understanding the Bible.

 

The Case For Creation / Greg Strannigan / Room 204
The textbook “Evolutionary Biology” declares, “Darwin made theological or spiritual explanations of the life processes unnecessary.” In other words, evolution has put God out of a job. The Origin of Species has trumped the Bible.
One writer put it this way, “As far as Christianity was concerned, the theory of evolution was catastrophic. The decline in religious belief can probably be attributed more to the propagation and advocacy by the intellectual and scientific community of the Darwinian version of evolution than to any other single factor.”

We have been conditioned to believe that Darwinism is scientific, while Creationism is not.  Science and faith are mutually exclusive. What’s wrong with that picture?

Science, in the past 30 years, has made huge discoveries in astronomy, biology and psychology. The bottom line is this – random mutation and natural selection cannot account for the complexity of life. Your faith will be encouraged and strengthened as we survey the conclusions from the past 30 years of scientific inquiry.

 

Growing In Psalm Appreciation / Ron Edson / Conference Room
Through most of my life I have thought and said of myself that I am not a “Psalm” or meditative type of person.  After hearing and reading testimonies of others on how much they benefit from and appreciate the Psalms I decided it was past time for me to address this weakness.  In this seminar I will share with you how I am growing to appreciate greatly this vital portion of Scripture.
