Midwest Creation Fellowship
Midwest Creation Fellowship is a "young earth" creationist organization. We exist to encourage the Church, in particular, to trust that the Bible is telling the truth about history, including in Genesis chapter One. Our monthly meetings are open to all. Our Library-by-Mail is available to all members (and membership costs only $20/year). Our Student Essay Contest is for any students ages 11-18; membership is not required. We also have speakers available on a variety of creation topics!

Prizes to $500!

Essayists ages 11 to 18 are invited to enter their work in the annual Student Essay Contest, for cash prizes and a lot of learning! Pick your favorite animal, plant, cosmological question, or any topic that pertains to the creation/evolution issue, and research what the evidences are for and against this having come into existence by time and chance and the properties of the universe. Or discuss the effects of evolutionism on society (ex.: law, psychology, crime, etc.). Use your imagination! (Just don't use your imagination instead of evidence!) (more...)

Submissions will be accepted until April 30, 2018. Winners may be invited to present their findings to an autumn MCF meeting - although no one is required to make a presentation.

8 Levels of Evidence of A Creator

with Rev. Rick McGough  (pronounced "McGoo")

Come enhance your worship of the Creator as we are awed by His wondrous works! Be better equipped to defend your faith with evidences that confirm your belief that God created the heavens and earth, in a way that is easy to understand. Be inspired, and ready to tell others, clearly and boldly!

Pastor McGough was the senior pastor of a church, but was led into full-time apologetics ministry because of the problems he was seeing among young Christians, whose faith was being destroyed by the pseudo-science and pseudo-logic they were taught. We were privileged to have him lead a workshop at the September 2017 Creation Truth Conference, and were impressed by his ability to apply logic to answer questions.

Information: A Unifying Biblical and Scientific Perspective

YouTube video of MCF's January 2018 meeting with Dr. Kenneth Funk

To see the video in a larger size, please view it on YouTube. To get there, hover your cursor over the video, then click "YouTube" in the bar at bottom of the frame, on the right.

Consider in a new way the foundational significance of the concept of information and what it communicates, irrefutably, about the origin, design and function of life processes, as well as its relation to Scripture, the laws of science, extra-terrestrial intelligence and our ultimate eternal destiny.

Dr. Funk is a peptide chemist, retired after long and successful service in the pharmaceutical industry. He is now the Director of MCF-North, and a member of MCF's Board of Directors. He engages speakers for both MCF-North and, normally, for MCF-West, and has been heading up MCF's booth at the Lake County Fair since 2013.

Age Level:  8th-grade and up -- so don't be afraid to check this out! His many visuals are edited in.

We're sorry, but due to the dangerous weather, no video was made of the January meeting with Walt Sivertsen. We are considering having him repeat it during July or August, since very few people were able to attend during the snowstorm in January.
