"From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God." Romans 1:20 (NLT)
Nearly two-thousand years ago, the most natural thing in the world would have been to find Jesus somewhere in the great expanse of the out-of-doors. At His side would have been a most unlikely group of men who should never have gotten along together. These twelve whom we know as His disciples were in the Creator's classroom learning what was to become the "kingdom that was to come" in the hearts of men.
Twin Pines has long had a reputation for its emphasis on nature and creation. As young people and adults study nature, creation, and the environmental issues, they feel a need and motivation to know the Creator. All of the programs and resources of our center are focused on promoting an awareness of God's intervention in every aspect of life.
What makes the Sweigert Nature Center at Twin Pines so unique is that it is full of "hands-on" experiences and activities that will reinforce the Christian faith in an atmosphere that can not be duplicated at home, school, or in the community. The Sweigert Nature Center is truly an "awareness center." The truth about the Creator is not just taught - it is experienced!!!
