MCF South!

Would you be interested in meetings in the area south of Chicago, rather than having to drive to Carol Stream or Lindenhurst?

Over the years, a few people have said they would like to see MCF meetings closer to the south of Chicago, but so far, no one has had the time and energy to make it happen. But there is now an MCF member who is seeking to start "MCF-South"!

If you're interested in attending meetings at an "MCF South" location, please email mcfsouth@midwestcreationfellowship.org. Or call the Sivertsens' residence at 847-223-4730, and we'll get you in contact with the organizer. And if you could help in any way (such as bringing refreshments, chair set up, clean up, finding a place to meet, handing out flyers, making sure the A/V equipment works, etc.), please let us know!

THANKS!

Grand Canyon: Puzzle on the Plateau

with Mr. Mike Snavely of www.MissionImperative.org

The Grand Canyon is one of the most breathtaking sites in the world. Visitors often stare, spellbound.…"How did this happen?!" Standard geological inter-pretations (that always involve millions of years) cannot explain many of the strange features and anomalies. This presentation will focus on one of the two creationist interpretations: that rather than the Canyon being directly caused by runoff from Noah's Flood, it came later, when a break in a natural dam emptied a post-Ice Age lake(s).

Theology of Death and Creation

with Dr. David Finkbeiner

Death is an important theological theme in Scripture. But some of us may not realize that this theme has implications for our understanding of how and when God created the world. Join us as we explore the theology of death in Scripture and its implications for the age of the earth.

Abortion Based on Evolution

with Dr. Jerry Bergman

Documents why evolution was critical in the U. S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade ruling that a woman had a constitutional right to abortion, nullifying all existing laws prohibiting abortion. If the court were rule on the same issue today they would likely decide on a very different conclusion.

9:00 a.m. & 10:30 a.m.

Topics: TBD

with Shane Cessna

He has been involved in the creation debate for many years and is now a speaker for CMI-US. He hopes to share with Christians that a belief in evolution and the Bible cannot be reconciled with one another. By discounting Genesis as literal history and accepting evolutionary beliefs, the gospel message is undermined and Christ is rendered unnecessary as Saviour and Redeemer of mankind. More...
