Active life at Genesis

Many ways to get involved at Genesis Church this week

Kids & families

Kids Church

Every Sunday morning your child will learn about God’s Word and how it applies to a “kids” life! The children are engaged in small and large group activities where they will discover that they are beautifully and wonderfully made all with a purpose in Christ.

Our Women
  • Our woman in Maryborough are beautiful. We long for them to be active in their community and restored, refreshed and released into Gods purposes for every season of life. We provide wonderful opportunities for connection, growth and empowerment designed specifically for the girls!
Our Men
  • Our men are mighty men! We get together to encourage, laugh, work and grow in our faith to show ourselves approved by God for good works! Bo-yah!
