One thing we truly value at Genesis is community. Whether you have never been to Genesis or Genesis has been your church for years, truly, the best way to get connected with our family and start meeting others is through Groups. These are so much more than quick chats or handshakes at church. Connect groups are where you can develop real and lasting friendships that go beyond Sunday morning with people who have common interests and are in the same season of life as you.
During a typical Sunday service, there is only so much time to support one another other in our faith Journey. We believe that a group of people, who are truly there for one another other in life, can be much more impactful than a typical Sunday service. No one wants to go through life alone and real change happens in the context of relationships.
At Genesis, there is a Group of people just for you and waiting to meet you. They have been saving you a seat.
You know as much as anybody that it's important to be connected. That's one reason you're part of Genesis.
We know it's hard to connect with others and build lasting friendships. We know that even defining community is tough because being in community is more than showing up for Bible study. It's also sharing food, laughing till it hurts, and doing what you love to do with your favorite people.
What if you could help more people find and enjoy that kind of laughing, caring, and growing community?
You can. Here’s how:
Not all Connect Groups offer childcare, but there are options available. Some Connect Group members share the responsibility of watching the kids, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements. Let us know if you would like to join a Connect Group with a childcare option.
Connect Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. Some meet every week, some meet every other week, or some meet once a month.
Use the Connect Group Finder Here to see when and how often each Connect Group meets.
Connect Groups meet in homes, restaurants, or coffee shops. Some Connect Groups meet to ride bikes or go for a hike. We can help you find a Connect Group near you and based on an activity you’re interested in.
It depends on the kind of Group you choose. Some Groups serve on the same team at church. Other Groups study the Bible together. And some get together to enjoy a shared interest, such as basketball, Jeeps, or video games. Find all the Group options Here.
