NPUC Creation Study Center Launches New Website

As of this year’s worldwide “Creation Sabbath” on Oct. 26, 2019, there has been an addition to the North Pacific Union Conference’s media outreach: a new website for the Creation Study Center. Its internet address is a simple one:  

The Geoscience Research Institute in Loma Linda, Calif., has a wonderful website full of advanced articles on origins. They feature a number of topics that have been addressed by Ph.D.'s from around the world. But what the NPUC wanted to provide was a source of solid scientific and scriptural support aimed specifically at the average church person, by trying to avoid super-technical language.

Many times Adventist members go to sources beyond the church for information on creation and evolution. Those sources sometimes include information that conflicts with official Adventist beliefs. The new Creation Study Center website was designed to give Adventists an additional resource that is supportive of the church’s stance on creation.

Thanks to generous donors and the web developing skills of Curious Media of Nampa, Idaho, the website is now operational. It features information on the Creation Center’s many services, including the scheduling of Stan Hudson, North Pacific Union Conference Creation Study Center’s director, as a seminar speaker. People can watch Hudson's seven-part creation lectures from the site or call to order their own DVD set.

The center itself is a museum. And it has been recently revamped with new rock and fossil displays and a large new case has been added. There is now an “Aaron’s Breastplate” display with stones similar to the original 15th-century B.C. settings. Minerals from the Holy Land, natural cross-shaped stones, brilliantly colored gems designed by the creator … all can be seen at the center. Visiting hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tours are available upon request.

The Creation Study Center has been busy with activities throughout 2019. Hudson and the NPUC team took nearly two tons of museum artifacts to Oshkosh, Wis., in July for the International Pathfinder Camporee. Supported by the church’s Geoscience Research Institute, the team hosted more than 10,000 curious visitors during the event. They taught classes for an estimated 1,400 Pathfinders in three areas: rocks and minerals, meteorites and geology.

Hudson has travelled throughout the NPUC during 2019, presenting nearly 25 creation seminars in churches and seven weeks of prayer in Adventist elementary schools. Hudson loves encouraging students to study God’s works in nature. The more we study God’s creation, the more we learn about Him.

Study Center staff and a number of NPUC-area pastors and teachers have also been active participants during the past two years with the annual Dino Dig, sponsored in Wyoming by Southwestern Adventist University. Another opportunity for pastors, teachers and students to join the “Dig” is available for 2020.
