Early Traditional Service – Chapel

Our early service blends traditional hymns and contemporary, insightful sermons led by either our Rev. Allyson Paxton or Rev. Eddie Kahler. This service is a scaled-down, intimate version of our 10:30 AM Traditional service. Our early service is held every Sunday morning in our chapel.

Traditional Worship – Sanctuary

Our traditional service is held every Sunday in our sanctuary and follows an informal, traditional format that is enhanced by our chancel choir and our beautiful pipe organ led by Mrs. Robyn Hollimon. Allyson Paxton is our Lead pastor for this service.

Contemporary Worship – Great Hall

Known as “Fusion” and held in our great room, this service features a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Music is contemporary in style and led by our Fusion band under the direction of our worship leader. Fusion is an opportunity to worship and connect with others in an environment unlike any other church. Rev. Eddie Kahler is the lead pastor for this service. 
 
 
 
 

General Information

Where can I find more info about joining the church?

If you are interested in joining the Genesis family, there are several opportunities for you to do so. The easiest way would be to contact any of our Staff or our pastors, Allyson Paxton and Edward Kahler via phone, email or in person immediately after the service. We have membership classes called “Connect Class” for those looking to become members here. These classes meet once a week for four weeks and occur every three months.
 
 

What are the expectations of members?

Members of United Methodist churches are asked to commit to the following categories of Christian living. 
  • Prayers: Members commit to pray for our church, our community and our world. 
  • Presence: Members commit to be present in worship and other opportunities where they can grow in their faith. 
  • Giving: Members commit to financially support the mission and ministry of the church through regular and special offering.
  • Service: Members commit to find a place where they can serve and be a part of the work that the church is doing locally, regionally and around the world. 
  • Witness: Members commit to living and sharing a life of faith that reflects their commitment to Jesus Christ.
 

What should I wear to worship?

We here at Genesis don’t have a formal dress code. We want those who worship to be comfortable in what they wear, whether formal or casual as long as our hearts are wearing humility and are open to receiving the word of Christ.
 
 

What about My Kids?

We take very seriously our commitment to partner with families in the process of nurturing children into Christian faith. We believe it is one of the most important things we do as a community of faith. Toddlers or young children are free to join our nursery (across from main Sanctuary) on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening and older children under 6th grade can join our Children’s Minister for Sunday School in the Children’s Assembly area as parents attend worship or small group classes. Kids involved with Genesis also experience Christ-filled events like VBS, Church Play Days, Wednesday Night activities, and many more throughout the year.
 
 

What about after worship?

After worship, we ask that you stop by the welcome desk to receive more information about the church, its ministries, and pick up a special gift just for you. If you would like to learn more about future events, you can subscribe to our News & Notes at the front welcome desk.
