Advent is a time of waiting, yet often it is a crazy time as we go from Thanksgiving into planning for Christmas. Or it can be a time of sorrow as we miss loved ones and times that were but are no more. We invite you to come worship with and join the journey of exploring "How Does a Weary World Rejoice?" We all carry weariness somewhere within us, how do we acknowledge the weariness yet be open to joy? We are located at 5707 S. Simms and worship in the Sanctuary at the Abiding Hope Nature School.

What to Expect at Worship
Sunday worship is a central focus of our Genesis congregation. It is here that we connect with God and each other. We embrace a progressive theology and challenge ourselves to grow our faith and understanding of God. We listen for God’s word, we sing and we pray together.
Worship is led each week by a member of the congregation, our music team and our pastor. One of the benefits of a smaller congregation is that we all actively participate and often have discussions about the sermon within the worship service. This is how we share and expand our learning.
Activist – We embrace: lay leadership; preaching as dialogue; taking discipleship seriously; active, engaged participation; joyous life in Christ.
Women Focused – We believe that women equally help lead us, in worship, prayer, preaching, action and love.
Open and Affirming – God is at work calling many LGBTQI into the ordained ministry. The Presbyterian Church USA recognizes the ordination of all. We too rejoice in the diversity of God’s children. Everyone is welcome and embraced at Genesis Church.
God Elsewhere Too – God is one. It is also true that God is doing God’s saving work through numerous other traditions. We can respect, learn from, and celebrate all faith traditions without diminishing our own.
Science and Scripture – “All truth comes from God” but do not check your brain at the door. Genesis studies the Bible in partnership with the modern world of science to fully grasp the powerful, guiding and changing force of God’s word wherever it is found. We are a Bible-believing church.
The Genesis Bible Study group meets the second and fourth Wednesday of every month at 10am in the Sky Pointe Dining Room. We will be be looking at the stories of Ruth, Esther, and Jonah among others.
The Genesis Book Group meets one Saturday a month except in July and August.. The group chooses books with the guidance of their professional librarian. Meeting places vary. For more details see the Calendar.
