Summer Family Trip to the Creation Museum

Summer Family Trip to the Creation Museum Educational trip to world-class attractions sponsored by Dayspring Christian Academy.

This trip is more than a vacation; it is an educational adventure you can share with your family. Guided by Mr. Randy Gehman, the lead science teacher at Dayspring Christian Academy, this trip will include visits to top educational sights as well as interpretation from a biblical creationist point of view. Trained as a biology educator, Mr. Gehman served as both a public school teacher and a pastor before coming to Dayspring. He has studied and taught about the creation / evolution controversy for almost 40 years. Join us as we learn to better understand Scripture, dinosaurs and the variety of life on our planet as a testimony to God’s magnificent creation.

Fossils formed slowly? No Way! While many of us were taught that fossils formed slowly when dead creatures were gradually buried over time, this could never account for the beautiful preservation of most fossils. This fish, in the process of eating another fish, had to have been buried instantaneously (think Noah's Flood)! Otherwise, it would have rotted or been ripped apart by scavengers. See this fossil and others at the Creation Museum this summer. Visit www.creationtrip.webstarts.com

A brand new, 2,500-square-foot exhibit in the massive bow end of the Ark’s third deck takes you into the pages of a gripping graphic novel. Through stunning artwork, you’ll follow three college students as they explore questions about the truth of God’s Word and why there is death and suffering in the world. The exhibit also uses the doors featured in the Bible to powerfully present the gospel (John 10:9). It’s a vivid gospel presentation that we believe will impact many people. The Ark is more than a huge boat - Come and See! Call 717.285.2000 for a brochure.
