Plan now to attend the 2012 Conference of the Conservative Grace Brethren Churches, International. This year, the Conference will be in Ft. Mitchell, KY at the Drawbridge Hotel, just minutes from the Creation Museum. Many edifying events are planned. Please take note of the following:
Special dinner and cruise on the “River Queen” from 7:00pm on Tuesday, July 3, 2012. The Conference is underwriting the cost to enable you to participate. This cruise does not stop at Coney Island.

CreationMuseumon Sunday afternoon, July 1, 2012. Please see the enclosed details and use the flier to advertise on your church bulletin board. We receive the group rate and you can buy tickets at any time from Pastor Ike Graham (adults 13-59 are 19.95; seniors 60+ are 15.95; children 5-12 are 11.95). The planetarium is extra (7.95), and worth it!
The Creation Museum has informed us that they have added a number of new features since our last visit in 2010. One of them is Dr. David Menton explaining fossils via a TV monitor while you wait in line. A fossil exhibit is right where the cue is.
You may also want to add the lunch cookout at the pavilion on the grounds of the Creation Museum. It will be ready so that you can go directly from the Conference to the Creation Museum and have lunch together. The youth will be lunching there also. The cost for the cookout is $8.00. The menu is hamburgers, hotdogs, brats, metts, buns, (tomatoes lettuce onions, cheese) and 4 side dishes (potato salad, baked beans, cole slaw, mac and cheese). Money for the lunch must be paid by June 1, 2012. See more information on the next page.
Paying for the Creation Museum and lunch in advance will expedite your entrance into the Museum after the cookout. Send your money for the Museum and lunch to Pastor Ike Graham; 2200 Paradise Road; Orrville, Ohio 44667.
In addition to the aforementioned events, we are also looking forward to the following:
Practorium graduation and Bible hour on Friday, June 29th.
