Grand Canyon Rim & Raft Trip

led by Eric Hovind, Russ Miller and Helmut Welke

This is an awesome opportunity for your family (kids, too!) to see the Canyon from the bottom up! Bring your family and friends. The Grand Canyon is America’s most recognized landmark and one of the top tools used by secularists to support “billions of years” and Darwinism. Spend two full fun-filled days rafting and exploring the chasm with Eric, Helmut and Russ! You will be amazed at the Truth of God’s Word seen at Grand Canyon and your faith will be emboldened.

Creation vs. Evolution - a Clash of Two Worldviews

Puzzle on the Plateau

with Mike Snavely

The Grand Canyon is one of the most breathtaking sites in the world. First time visitors often stare, spellbound.…“How did this happen?!” Standard geological interpretations (that always involve millions of years) cannot explain many of the strange features and anomalies.

Sunday, September 8, 2019
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...
