Pastor Nathanael Mayhew sent the following announcement, which we happily pass on to you:

“Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church will be celebrating Creation Sunday, February 19th, 2012.  Throughout the day we will focus on the truth that God has created the world by his all powerful word, not through the atheistic theory of evolution.   This will be the focal point of our children’s Sunday School lesson, our adult Bible Study, a special worship service as well as special creation presentation in the afternoon.

10:00am – Sunday School and Adult Bible Class 11:00am – Creation Day worship service 12:30pm – Fellowship lunch 1:30pm – Creation presentations for children and adults

In the afternoon session two presentations will be offered: “The Bible explains Dinosaurs” and “The Six Days of Creation.”

As Christians we and our children are confronted with these and other attacks against the authority of Scripture on a regular and increasing basis.  Now, more than ever, we need to be sure of what God teaches about the creation of the world in the Bible.  We need to prepare ourselves and our children for defiant and even subtle attacks against God and His Word.  Peter writes, “always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15).

We hope that you will join us next weekend as we strive to know, uphold, and defend the whole truth of God’s precious Word of Life.”

The church is located at 132 Hurricane Shoals Rd. Lawrenceville, GA 30046.  Additional information about our church can be found on the church’s website at

Pastor Mayhew has also written an article for his church newsletter which comments on Creation Sunday, which can be found at:

I  encourage you to attend this Creation Sunday celebration if you’re in the area, and to lift up Pastor Mayhew and Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church for their unashamed stand for the historical veracity and ultimate authority of God’s Word!
