This class will affirm the good things you are already doing with your grandkids. It might also shake your world and give you a brand-new perspective on what it means to be an intentional Christian grandparent. Whether you are on one end of that spectrum or the other — or in the middle somewhere — you are going to be deeply impacted by the few hours of time you choose to invest.

Our desire is that you go away with new inspiration, encouragement and tools to help you realize your potential to grandparent successfully. You will unlearn some things, and relearn others. Your passion for your grandkids will be kindled even higher, and you’ll go away changed. More importantly, those precious grandchildren of yours will benefit, and they will never be the same because you have listened, learned and grown in biblical wisdom.

A perceived disconnect between science and the Bible is a significant factor in why many start doubting and drift away from the church. Yet, many Christians are not equipped to understand how the Bible can inform their understanding of the origin of life, evolution, the fossil record, dinosaurs and other topics. As Christians strive to uphold the basis of their faith and biblical authority, it is important that they be able to provide answers to these questions. This course is designed to help the student develop a solid biblical worldview and to instill in the learner a love for God’s Word and His world, focusing on the book of Genesis. The student will be shown that the authority of Scripture should be upheld from the very first verse. A variety of interesting topics will be presented using "Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis" DVD series that engages viewers of all ages with scientific evidence that confirms Genesis as a chronological record of God’s creation.
