Annual Planned Giving & Elder Nominations
Annual Planned Giving: One hundred percent of our expenses are covered by your generosity when you give your tithes and offerings. As we prepare the budget for FY 2019/20, which runs from July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020, please prayerfully consider the amount that you are planning to give. Please communicate your planned giving for FY 2019/20 by filling out this form by Friday, April 5th, so we can present an accurate and finalized budget for our members to approve at the annual meeting on May 13th.
Elder Nominations: Genesis West will be electing 2 - 4 new elders to join the existing Elder Team at our upcoming Annual Meeting scheduled for May 13, 2019. The deadline to send names to the Nominating Committee for consideration is March 31, 2019. Once all nominations are received, including those the Nominating Committee comes up with as a group, the Nominating Committee will prayerfully narrow the list down to 2-4 Elder candidates who will be recommended for affirmation through a vote by members at the annual meeting.

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.
