This was a mighty blessing to find. But I wondered: are there any churches active on creation/evolution? I searched for "Ken Ham Urbana IL" and found that Robert Gilbert from Calvary Baptist Church was number 64 on the Creation Letter Project. Woohoo! He's not the "pastor" of this church, though.
Wow: Look at this: "Teenager/Young Adult Bible Study
When: Sundays, 9:45 AM

In the world today our faith is under constant attack. This Bible Study will focus on equipping ourselves with knowledge to defend our faith. With a greater understanding of God's Word we will be better prepared to face the post-modern culture in which we live. Some of the issues we will be discussing include evolution, environmentalism, genetic engineering, sexual ethics and the media and how all of these relate to our Christian faith." Isn't that cool! This wa taught last fall at Trinity Lutheran Church in town!
