Dr. Tim Clarey and Mr. Frank Sherwin will speak on biblical creation at the Fellowship of Bible Churches Winter Retreat held at Camp Tohighlo in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. They will address the state of the church in the battle over origins and provide assurance that the book of Genesis is true and backed by sound science. Attempts at theistic evolution fall short in their explanations of both biblical and scientific data. True science supports a young, created earth and a global flood.

Dates: May 7, 2021 - May 8, 2021

Registration is required. Please call (717) 587 – 8127 for more information.


Friday, May 7th
Time Speaker Title Description
8:00 a.m. Registration
9:00 a.m. Devotions
9:45 a.m. Mr. Frank Sherwin "Scientific Evidences for Creation" Critics regularly say, “Creation is either something you believe or don’t believe, but there’s no evidence for it.” The case for creation is rooted in what Paul teaches in Romans 1—that God’s work and attributes are “clearly seen.” Mr. Sherwin describes the tools needed to discern objects that have been made (created) vs. objects that form over time through chance and natural processes. He then provides convincing evidence for creation from the microscopic world (bacteria and molecular machines) and the macroscopic world (animals like the bat and woodpecker).
10:45 a.m. Break
11:00 a.m. Dr. Tim Clarey "The Truth About the Genesis Flood" In this presentation, Dr. Clarey shows how sedimentary evidence across several continents confirms the occurrence of a global flood. He presents oil industry data compiled into maps and diagrams that illustrate the progression of the Flood and match the biblical narrative. He provides biblically based scientific explanations for large-scale sedimentary deposits that were rapidly formed by catastrophic activity. This abundant evidence supports a worldwide flood that happened just thousands of years ago.
12:00 p.m. Lunch break
1:15 p.m. Mr. Frank Sherwin “Human Evolution” The media, movies, and nature programs overwhelmingly emphasize the idea that humans evolved from primate ancestors. But what do genetics and the fossil record say? Do people and chimps really have 98% similar DNA? Who or what was “Lucy”? Were the Neanderthals sub-human? Are our wisdom teeth, appendices, and tonsils just evolutionary leftovers? Mr. Sherwin’s non-technical presentation confirms that people have always been people, just as Genesis says.
2:15 p.m. Break
2:30 p.m. Dr. Tim Clarey "Revealing the Secrets of the Ice Age" Was there an Ice Age? If so, what caused it? Dr. Clarey reveals a biblical reason for the timing of the Ice Age and the dispersion from the Tower of Babel. The Ice Age was an essential ending to the global Flood.
3:30 p.m. Break
3:45 p.m. Mr. Frank Sherwin "The Rapid Biological Recovery of Mount St. Helens" ICR zoologist Mr. Frank Sherwin shares biological and ecological lessons from Mount St. Helens. After a natural disaster, creation scientists observe geological and environmental recovery processes, and apply those observations to better understand the disastrous effects of the global Flood. The 1980s eruptions of Mount St. Helens have impacted many areas of science, including geology and ecology. Recovery by flora and fauna in the devastated area around the volcano occurred very quickly. These observations have profound implications for understanding how Earth’s ecology would have been renewed after the global Flood recorded in Genesis.
4:45 p.m. Dinner Break
7:00 p.m. Both speakers Q&A
8:30 p.m. Fellowship Time
Saturday, May 8th
Time Speaker Title Description
8:00 a.m. Breakfast
9:00 a.m. Devotions
9:45 a.m. Dr. Tim Clarey "Do Dinosaurs Support Evolutionary Theory?" Dr. Clarey refutes the notion of dinosaur evolution and ancestry by examining four common dinosaur myths. He exposes each one using scientific evidence and concludes that dinosaurs were created just thousands of years ago. Dinosaurs were not feathered and likely not warm-blooded as most secularists seem to believe. The evidence supports the idea that all dinosaur kinds were created fully-formed by God on Day 6 of the creation week.
10:45 a.m. Break
11:00 a.m. Mr. Frank Sherwin "Hummingbirds by Design" Of all the birds of God’s creation, the hummingbird might be the most remarkable. Everything about these creatures shouts design. Their little hearts can beat more than 1,000 times a minute, while their wings beat from 50 to 80 times a second. Its specialized interaction with plants, visual color range, complex vocalization, and unique flight and physiological capabilities are a testament to God’s living creation design.
12:00 p.m. Lunch break
1:30 p.m. Dr. Tim Clarey “The Assurances of Genesis” Dr. Clarey addresses the state of the church in the battle over origins. He provides four assurances that the book of Genesis is true and backed by sound science. Attempts at theistic evolution fall short in their explanations of both biblical and scientific data. True science is shown to support a young, created earth and a global flood.
2:30 p.m. Break
