“Gold Rush” in Alaska

by on

With my blog post today, I wanted to draw your attention to our Vacation Bible School (VBS) curriculum and how an estimated 250,000 young people will have attended one of our VBS programs in churches this year.

Matt Graubner is one of our Creation Museum staff who sent me this email below about how our Gold Rush VBS was used in Alaska—a state that had its own Gold Rush over 100 years ago as thousands of people moved to Alaska to prospect for gold.


A couple months ago my parents were part of a team that traveled from Nashville, Tennessee to Alaska to put on a VBS program for children there. They utilized the AiG “Gold Rush” program.  I thought you might enjoy the pictures and description below (having seen the other testimonies we’ve received and put on your blog). Here is what my mother wrote to me:


I just want to share with you about our time in Alaska.  We had a team of 20 people go to Anchorage in June and work with Grace Works Anchorage. We used the VBS material from AiG: “Gold Rush.”

This was a little different VBS. We worked in a public park. Our team had to adapt some of the VBS material, but it worked out well and we feel we planted the seeds.  Thanks again for the great material. Here are some pictures we took.

Bengals’ Back Back

That is, a running “back” with the Cincinnati Bengals was “back” at the Creation Museum recently. Cedric Peerman visited along with his pastor, Bill Rillo, of Hyde Park Baptist Church in Cincinnati. Here they are with Cedric in the middle; to the right are Pastor Rillo and his wife; Mark Looy and John Pence of our staff are on the left.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
