Get Answers!
Does God exist?  How can anyone believe in religion when science has neither a need nor a place for God?  Is evolution happening today?  If God is a God of love, why do we suffer and die?
Creation Ministries International is coming to your area soon with answers to these important questions.  Come and hear Rusty Fulp expose the bankruptcy of the evolutionary myth.  You'll be amazed to see how weak the scientific evidence for evolution is.
This is an issue that affects everyone.  Evolution teaches us there is no need for God, there is no spiritual realm, and there is no afterlife.  According to the theory, spirituality is just an evolutionary trick of the mind!  The Bible gives a very differnet picture about the nature of these things.  At this presentation, you will learn how the scientific evidence, when properly understood, confirms the details of the biblical account.  At the same time, we will answer many of the Big Questions.
Creation Ministries International presents:
"Creation: Why it Matters - A Flood of Evidence"
Sunday, October 12, 2014           7:00 pm

Corinth Baptist Church will hold its Fall Revival October 19 -22, 2014. Sunday services will begin at 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Weeknight services will begin at 7:00 p.m. Rev. Johnny Tallent, full time evangelist from Morristown, TN, will be our guest preacher. There will be special music at each service. Everyone is welcome and invited to attend.

First Baptist Church Indian Trail will be conducting Judgement House, Wednesday, October 22 through Saturday, October 25, 2014.  This year, we will premiere the script "59 Minutes".  Judgement House in a great alternative to the Halloween haunted house.  We take groups of 30 people every 10 minutes and lead them through a series of 8 rooms, following the lives of four main characters.  The choices those individuals make determine their enternal destiny as shown in the drama.
Judgement House is true to life, however, we do not get graphic or sensational in an attempt to scare people.  Our production is intended to creatively present the Gospel and let men, women, boys and girls choose for themselves whom they will serve.  There is an invitation at the end.  Over the years, thousands of people have attended Judgement House with hundreds making a first time profession of faith.
We are taking reservations for groups.  There is a suggested donation of $3.00 per person to help offset the expense of the production.  I ask that you prayerfully consider making Judgement House a part of your fall schedule.  This is a great outing for youth groups and young adults.  We recommend that participants be at least 10 years old.  We will forward to you any information on participants who make a decision.
If you have questions or want to make a reservation, please call Julie at 704-893-2640, Monday-Thursday 8 am-5 pm or Friday 8 am-1 pm.
I hope to see you and your group this year!
