What is the Creation Celebration?
The Creation Celebration is a week-long event we hold every two years. During this week the students participate in classes, science labs, crafts, snacks and games all centered around God's creation! We choose a new theme for each Celebration and this year's theme is Your Questions Answered! We have about 200 kids from preschool through high school participating each year.
Each day starts with worship/praise singing as a group while everyone arrives. Students then break into their groups with their leaders and follow through to the various activities and stations planned for each day. Then we end with worship again in the sanctuary for singing and closing prayers. We go from 9am-12:30pm (approx) each day for the K-6th grade students and 12:15-4:30pm for the 7th-12th grade students.
This is a huge event that needs lots of volunteers! A list and sign-up will be posted in the spring so keep watch for announcements.

***Lunch with guest speakers: We would like to invite the teens to participate in a fellowship lunchtime with the guest speakers each day. Students will be able to bring their lunch or buy lunch from the kitchen for a set price. Lunch selections and payment options will be posted on the Quest website as time gets closer. Parents and other visitors will be allowed to enjoy lunch and fellowship as well. (If you choose to bring a lunch please pack things that do not need to be heated or prepared in the kitchen. The kitchen staff will be very busy preparing snacks and lunches all day.)
***Nursery: Nursery care will be available all day to those families that are volunteering. Please let us know if you plan to volunteer and will need nursery care! (You can volunteer to work in the nursery as well.)
***PreK-6th afternoon activities are being planned as well for those parents with younger students that would like to participate with their teens or are volunteering during the afternoon session. More information will be available as plans are made. Please RSVP for afternoon activities!
Quotes from past & continuing participants:
"I love that my children have another opportunity outside our home to be saturated in the beauty and truthfulness of scripture. Creation Celebration is all about giving glory to our Lord for his wondrous works and it is done in a way that engages all their senses."
"Creation Celebration has given our children an opportunity to learn creation apologetics at their level. The kids have a wonderful time and don't even realize how much they are learning. As a parent volunteer I have been blessed to be a part of the Creation Celebration; meeting new people, watching the children learn, and having the opportunity to serve others."
"We have attended Creation Celebration each time it has been offered, and it's become a "don't miss" event for our family. Our kids have come away with memories of fun hands-on science, fascinating facts about science and nature and the Bible, resources to refer to once they go home, and food for thought that lasts long after the week is over. It's unusual to find a program like this that involves students all the way through high school, which makes this a valuable opportunity for those older students to get immersed and focused on spiritual and scientific material, with fellow students and parents and instructors they know and trust."
