Place:    Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church 
Address:  2350 Leigh Avenue, San Jose, CA
Date:     Thursday, July 21, 2011
Time:     7:30 to 9:30 PM

Scott Cox has been a ruling elder in the San Francisco Orthodox Presbyterian Church since the mid 1980’s. Raised as a Southern Baptist, he was exposed to theistic evolutionary thinking prior to the Convention’s return to more Biblical-based theology and practice in the late 1970’s.

Scott holds a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from U.C. Berkeley and enjoys natural history pursuits (botany, birding, hiking, photography).  He is preparing to teach Math, Science and Comparative Religion this coming Fall at El Sobrante Christian School.  He also worked for Chevron Chemical Company, Clorox Technical Company and Bank of America prior to launching a new career in teaching.

In his presentation, Scott will speak about what the Bible has to say about creation and compare some of the various models used by Christians.  Scott is a proponent of the young earth model.

Scott is a very gifted and knowledgeable speaker.   He speaks at a level well suited for young people, so please feel free to bring youth and students along!

This event is FREE and open to the public!

WHAT:    The Biblical Creation Association of Silicon Valley

WHEN:    Thursday, March 17, 7:30 – 9:30 PM
WHERE:  Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church
2350 Leigh Avenue, San Jose, CA

 WHO:  Dr. Mel Mulder, author of Beyond Intelligent Design (featured on daily radio broadcasts) practiced surgery in the S.F. Bay Area for 25 years, serving also on the Board of Mid-America Reformed Seminary (Dyer, IN) and on the Christian Reformed Synodical Committee on Creation and Science (1991) – having always been a proponent of Six-day Creation.

TOPIC:  “A Line in the Sand”
Children are precious, and they can be mistreated by academic bullies. What if you and your family drew a line in the sand, having “zero tolerance” for their spiritual pride and pseudo-scientific power games?   

Modern “science” has mutated into a religion called evolutionism within another religion, atheism.  Today’s “theological mutants” are no better! Isn’t it ironic that they are getting on the evolutionary train when many leading secular scientists are getting off?  

Come here Dr. Mulder spell out clearly what the stakes are. 

Call 408 420-3871 for questions.

WHAT:       “Lucy and Other Ape-man stories”
WHERE:     Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church, 2350 Leigh Avenue, San Jose

Come hear an empowering presentation using Powerpoint slides and a variety of bones, including a real human skeleton that will aid in defending against ape-men and other evolutionary dogma.  Learn why Lucy was an ape, not ape-man.

Bring friends who need to know how to defend their faith, as well as those who think that evolution is supported by true science.

Dr. Vernon W. Nellis, who holds degrees in both science and theology, has been active with Calvary Chapel Mountain View for about a decade, with jail and  convalescent and retirement home ministries for about 4 decades, and has conducted seminars on various Creation vs evolution topics.

None of this truly matters unless we surrender to Jesus Christ. Attendees will be given an opportunity (challenged) to do so.

Come hear Ting speak to us in October. You won't be disappointed.

WHO:  Dr. Ting Wang, Youth Pastor
Korean Central Presbyterian Church,
Daly City, CA

TOPIC:  “Dying to Live”

“The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Aside from infuriating grammarians (for “wages” is plural and “is” is the singular), this biblical concept speaks volumes for our understanding of God’s plan for his people –

Did sin lead to death? Did life lead to sin?  Life lead to death? Vice versa?  Does it matter?  Join us for a stimulating presentation and discussion of the biblical understanding of the connection between sin, death, and life.

Pastor Manuel Pereira, Trinity Bible Church in Morgan Hill, CA

Come join us on Thursday, July 15 to hear Pastor Manuel Pereira speak about “The Deluge  and Dinosuars”.
Our meeting will be at a NEW TIME, 7:30 PM so people coming from the Mt. View direction won’t have to fight traffic.

As a former science and technology professional at at IBM’s Almaden Research Center, Pastor Pereira has gracefully departed from his career in research and has devoted himself to serving the Lord in full-time pastoral ministry, “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ.” (Eph. 4:11)

Pastor Pereira is currently building and maintaining a biblical creation ministry, entitled Evolution-Exposed.com, from which he has presented several creation seminars that proclaim the word of God as authoritative in all matters, including genuine science.

Pastor Pereira is pursuing a Master of Divinity degree from The Master’s Seminary concurrent to his service in the ministry at Trinity Bible Church in Morgan Hill, CA.

When: Thursday June 17, 2010, 7:30-9:30 pm
