Early Childhood

Infants (o-24 months) meet on the lower level of the building in the nursery during the whole service. Toddlers (2's and 3's) and Pre-K (4's and 5's) meet just past the offices on the upper level of the gym. Our early childhood classes follow a rotation of free play, story and snack, and then group play. If you would like your children to take communion with you, you may check them out of their class early.

Elementary

Does Not Meet in the Summer.

We have elementary classes weeks two to four of the month, keeping the first Sunday of the month for family worship in the sanctuary. Our elementary kids interact with each other through games and conversation, then hear an oral telling of a story from Scripture, have a time of response and sharing, then join their parents in the service for Eucharist. The kindergarten/ 1st grade class meets on the upper level, just past the offices at Elim. 2nd/3rd and 4th/5th meet on the lower level, next to the gym. Teachers will bring the elementary children in to the back of the sanctuary to meet parents for Eucharist.

Teenagers

Does Not Meet in the Summer.

Sixth through twelfth graders are considered "teens" at Genesis and are an important part of our church. We welcome their voices in the "all-plays" and their involvement through service on Sundays. We do not have separate classes on Sundays for teens. The teens at Genesis meet once a month in a home for snacks and volunteer-led conversation. If you would like to host a teen gathering or help plan an event for our teens, please reach out to our staff! If you would like to receive emails for the teen gatherings, please email hellowest@genesiscov.org.
