Start a Creation Club

And unless students belong to a Bible-believing church, they have probably heard little about what Scripture reveals and how science confirms it. But that doesn’t mean creation has been completely expelled from school. In fact, the door is open for “creation clubs” to share the truth about the history of the universe.

And that’s where you have a chance to make an impact in your school. If you’ve ever considered starting a club that proclaims the truth of the Creator, it may not be as impossible as you think.

Most school districts allow student-led clubs that support the interests of the students. Find out if yours does and pray about the opportunity. Seek counsel from your parents and your local church—you’ll need support. Also, start talking to friends to see if there’s interest.

To get started, you will likely need to find an adult sponsor and a place to meet. Know the rules for your school district and respectfully abide by them. Keep your group’s actions above reproach. If you want to bring in outside speakers, make sure you know the requirements. Include resources like books, online videos, and DVDs to frame your discussions.

When developing your creation club, make sure that you have a clear plan and purpose that engages those seeking answers. If your goal is to directly refute everything the biology teacher says, for example, you may alienate some students who need to hear the truth. While you should point out flaws in evolutionary ideas, be sure to offer positive examples of how the amazing creativity of God shows up in the world and the universe beyond.

Most important, keep the Bible handy in your discussions and point your fellow students to the hope found in Christ—our Creator and Redeemer.
