The Amazing Adventure

Join us for an Amazing Adventure in the Bible!

Every year, many churches hold evangelistic meetings geared for adults, leaving kids both squirming and bored to death. Amazing Adventure attempts to change that by holding a set of Bible study meetings made especially for kids ages 8 to 12.

"Amazing Adventure will be enjoyable for both kids and parents. There will be exciting illustrations, interactive Bible questions, stirring music, and then a gospel message aimed at their hearts that is both intriguing and inspirational," says the event's website.

According to the site, the program will help kids learn more about young Bible heroes (David, Samuel, Daniel, Josiah, and others...) while highlighting a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Topics include: God's Word, the devil and the origin of evil, the second coming of Jesus, law and the Christian lifestyle, salvation, the Sabbath, health, the truth about death and ***, baptism and the church, and heaven and commitment.


The series will run from Friday, September 12 to Saturday, September 20, 2008. Each nightly program will run about 1 hour and 30 minutes. The first hour will be for children and their families, while the last half hour is a parenting seminar for the attendees' parents. You can watch each broadcast live on 3ABN and on the event's website.

Adventist neurosurgeon receives top award; Cuba Gooding Jr. to portray him in new movie

Source: Adventist News Network

A Seventh-day Adventist pioneer in pediatric neurosurgery who overcame childhood poverty and achieved worldwide renown received the highest civilian award bestowed by the United States government on June 19.



Dr. Benjamin S. Carson Sr. was awarded the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom for his outstanding contributions to medicine and his motivating influence on America's young people, U.S. President George W. Bush said during a morning ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

Perhaps best known for his successful efforts in separating conjoined twins and controlling brain seizures in children, Carson is chief of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins University Medical Institutions in Baltimore, Maryland, United States.

Carson, an inner city Detroit, Michigan native, overcame a "grim future" of poverty, crime and violence to become "a scholar, a healer and a leader," Bush told the audience of cabinet members, Congressional representatives and medal recipients and their families.

"For his skills as a surgeon, his high moral standards and his dedication to helping others, I am proud to bestow this honor," Bush said. [click here to read more]

Dr. Carson has also authored 4 books, his latest one on "learning to identify, choose and live with acceptable risk." You can listen Ground 7 News' interview with him by clicking here.



The Adventist neurosurgeon will be played by Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. in an upcoming movie based on his autobiography, "Gifted Hands."
