Creation Sabbath celebrates the wonder of God’s handiwork

MICHIGAN--On Oct. 27, the Village Church in Berrien Springs hosted Creation Sabbath – a celebration of God's work in creation as described in the book of Genesis and affirmed throughout Scripture.  


Timothy Standish, senior scientist from The Geoscience Research Institute of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Loma Linda, Calif. partnered with the Village Church in organizing a weekend, which had an attendance of more than 700. Many came to see Creation paintings recently completed by world-renowned artist, Nathan Greene. The weekend displayed six Creation paintings from a series of seven; the seventh is currently in progress.  


The afternoon included over 150 children who came for a kids’ program that featured science experiments hosted by chemistry students of Ryan Hayes, Chemistry professor at Andrews University. Presenters included scientists, theologians, educators, and designers.
