Joining God's work of cultivating new beginnings
in all of us, everywhere.
Special Series - October 20th, 27th, and November 4th: Engaging a New Conversation
Over the next six months, the elders are leading Genesis West through a discernment process regarding LGBTQIA+ inclusion in our church. This conversation will include listening circles, learning environments, one-on-one conversations and small group discussions. We’ll be using the message portion during three consecutive Sunday mornings (October 20th, 27th, and November 3rd) to create common language and awareness around this topic. Steve Wiens will be teaching in his usual manner, inviting the voice of the community to be heard. We hope you’ll make it a priority to join us for these three Sundays. The topics will be as follows: October 20th: How We Read the Bible; October 27th: Verses of Interest - LGBTQIA+; November 3rd: Healthy Sexuality
What are Sundays like?
We meet at Elim Church Center (3978 W. Broadway in Robbinsdale) at 10:45am on Sunday mornings. We like to call ourselves warmly liturgical: we sing, pray, preach, and celebrate the Eucharist (communion) together every Sunday. The atmosphere is interactive and intimate. The music is understated and beautiful. The prayers are often call and response. We move forward out of our seats to receive the Eucharist (which we do every week). The sermon is conversational and thoughtful. People dress casually. Parking is easy and convenient. The whole thing lasts about an hour.
We have weekly Sunday classes for children infants through 5th grade. All children participating in our programming check in at our kids’ check-in desk before going to their classrooms. We celebrate holidays together in the service; classes are only offered for infants and toddlers on those special days.
