Church Trip taken on November 29th & 30th

The Ark Encounter, owned and operated by Answers in Genesis (AiG). This is a historical theme park, with a 510-foot-long Ark as the centerpiece. Opened July 7, 2016, the Ark Encounter is located right off exit 154 in Williamstown, Kentucky, half way between Cincinnati, Ohio and Lexington, Kentucky. It is the largest timber-framed structure in the world, 510 feet long and over 50 feet high, and has solid wood center beams nearly 10 feet in circumference.  Centertown UMC had 15 participants experiencing this latest adventure.

The Ark is 40 miles from its popular sister attraction, the Creation Museum.

The Creation Museum shows why God´s infallible Word, rather than man´s faulty assumptions, is the place to begin if we want to make sense of our world.

This 75,000-square-foot facility allows families to experience earth history as God has revealed it in the Bible. Nearly 150 exhibits feature fearsome animatronic dinosaurs, talking heroes of the faith, and professional displays that honor God´s Word. The museum also boasts a fun-filled, 200-seat special effects theater, a state-of-the-art planetarium, a petting zoo, nature trails, and lots more.

At the heart of the Creation Museum is a chronological retelling of biblical history in seven parts called the Seven C´s (pictured above). Guests step back in time, beginning with Creation, and fast-forward to Christ´s return. Along the way, they see how God´s Word provides the big-picture answers for our most difficult questions, whether about science, the Bible, or our personal relationship with God.

Barbara Wilson served as the trip coordinator.  Many thanks Barbara!
