Summer of Creation Ideas

summerofcreationsunWant to join the Summer of Creation, but need a few ideas? We can help.

  • Use our FREE Defending Genesis church bulletin inserts. A free 13-week resource that your church can download and print to help keep your church informed on the issues of Creation & Catastrophism during our Summer of Creation initiative! The entire 13-week series is now available for download on PDF!
  • Celebrate a Creation Sunday. It’s not too late! We have lots of ideas for how to celebrate a Creation Sunday. We also also launching the Creation Sunday Resource in the near future, a troll-free message board for exchanging ideas on how to celebrate a Creation Sunday and for promoting Young Earth Creationism in general.
  • Host a Creation Conference or Invite a Creation Speaker to your Church or Youth group. Our founder, Rev. Tony Breeden is available speak [or even preach] at your church, youth, home school or community groups. Please visit DefendingGenesis.org for more information! You might also contact ministries like Answers in Genesis, The Institute for Creation Research or Creation Ministries International.
  • Attend a Creation Camp. There are actually youth and family camps that host programs from an explicit Young Earth Creation & Catastrophism worldview.
  • Host a Creation VBS or Summer Youth program.We’d like to point out that many churches find themselves ministering to out-of-school youth during the Summer. This is a perfect opportunity to evangelize. Our children only hear one side of the Origins argument in public school. This is the perfect opportunity to present them with the other side of the argument, the side that better fits the evidence – Biblical Creation and Catastrophism!Most churches host at least one Vacation Bible School program during the Summer months. Why not host one with a Creation theme? Again, this is the perfect time to bolster the faith of our Christian youth and to share the truth of Creation with public school children! While we take advantage of this opportunity to show them that they can trust God’s Word from the very first word, we can use that foundation to share the Good News of Salvation by Jesus Christ the Creator!
    • AnswersVBS.com features two successful Creation VBS programs from Answers In Genesis, Amazon Expedition & Operation Space.
    • Apologetics Press offers 5-Day VBS program called God’s Creation: Digging for Answers
    • The Creation Truth Foundation also offers a Creation VBS program called Our Lost World.
    • Creation Family Ministries offers 5 exciting VBS themes including “Jungle Tales,” “Dino Might,” “Secrets of the Sea” & more.
    • Or you can use a little creativity and make up a program yourself. DefGen.org’s  Summer 2010 Newsletter featured a unique Noah’s Ark VBS program put on by local churches (and featuring founder Rev. Tony Breeden as Noah) and a Creation Spaced Camp VBS.
  • Visit a local Creation Museum. This is by far one of the most popular ways to learn more about Biblical Creationism and bolster your faith in the integrity of God’s enduring Word. If you’re not sure where to find one, we have a list of Creation Museum websites (note: This link takes you to our affiliate site, CreationLetter.com).
  • Sponsor a Creation or anti-evolution billboard such as the one proposed by WhoIsYourCreator.com
  • Go on a Creation Safari. Whether a day hike, a little spelunking or a homeschool field trip into nature, you can take your cue from the guys at CreationSafaris.com to add new meaning to the line, This is My Father’s World. Worship God in His Creation!
  • Create a Creation Wall in your church. Collect fossils for display, add posters and Biblical references about Creation. Debunk common evolution myths. Dedicate a portion of your church to exhibiting the truth of God’s Creation. This can be a real draw for visitors and can open up evangelism opportunities for those who are genuinely drawn to dinosaurs and such! Alternately, you can make The Creation Wall a project for Sunday School with original artwork and research by your very own Kreation Kids.
  • Give your Backyard Bible Club a Creation emphasis. The fact is that dinosaurs are huge draw for kids. Our youth are intensely interested in dinosaurs and we can use that interest to show them the truth about Christ the Creator. Learn more here.

    Tony, I have been looking over your site after reading about it in Ken Ham’s Around the World Newsletter. I was not aware of the Evolution Sunday history, so I appreciated your bringing it to my attention and the attention of others. How sad it is to see so many compromising the truth of God’s Word in this way!

    I am the pastor of a small confessional church in the Atlanta area that is part of a small synod of conservative Lutheran churches known as the Church of the Lutheran Confession. I have been planning a Creation Sunday – not knowing all of what you mention here, so am more motivated to do it now.

    For your information (you can post this on you blog if you would like) our congregation is planning a Creation/Evolution seminar at the end of this month at our church (Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 2:00pm). You can find more about it at http://www.creationorevolution.info if you are interested. I have many resources on creation, and I will look for them and send them to you if you are interested. Please feel free to contact me.
