Access to Care
Scroll through this page to find the different ways that we as a church seek to love and support our community and the communities around us -- whether you need care or want to give care.
We do provide benevolence to people outside of our community. If you would like to request benevolence assistance from the church, you can do so here.
Community Cafe is a twice-monthly meal served either grab-and-go style or sit down in South Hall for our friends and neighbors. This legacy effort has been a long-standing, low-barrier, belly-filling and community-focused outreach of the Genesis community for many years. Meal service occurs typically on the second and fourth Saturday of the month from 11:30am-1:00pm. To learn more or sign up to sponsor a meal, contact Cristina Ike.
Food bags are available for those who need it during our church office hours: Tuesdays from 9am-12pm.
Genesis has a team of people who band together to provide meals for others in our community who could benefit from them, especially after illness or injury, loss, or other major life events.
If you would like to be notified when there is a family who could use a meal or nominate someone (or yourself) for a meal train, click here.
Submit Prayer Requests
If you have a prayer request, whether private or public, that you would like to share with our community, you can text it to 94000 or submit it through our digital green card.
We also have elder prayer on the first and third Sundays of the month if you would like to be prayed over by an elder in our community.
Air Coverage Prayer
On the second Sunday of every month at 9am, join us at Genesis for a church-wide prayer meeting. All are welcome to spend this hour before our service praying with us.
We practice different kinds of prayer, like praise, intercession, and listening, and will pray over topics and themes that have come up through our submitted prayer channels over the course of the previous month.

Want to start your weekday mornings off right? Pastor Beau leads a daily morning devotional on weekday mornings at 9am via Zoom. If you would like to get the link to these, you can email Beau.

Genesis has started accepting $25 gift cards to Meijer and Kroger as part of our benevolence fund. These gift cards, which can be used for gas and/or groceries, are accessible to people who may walk into our building asking for assistance at a time when there is someone in the office to assist in that moment. If you are interested in donating a gift card, contact Amanda Hines.
