The purpose of the Genesis Baptist Church Youth Ministry is to expose the unsaved to Christ, to facilitate care for each other, to build love based relationships, to offer praise to God, and to grow in Christ.
Our Youth Ministry is designed to meet children, youth, and young adults where they are in their Christian walk and develop lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. At Genesis, we currently have a total of 125 active students participating in our Youth Ministry. The ages include:
Children: Birth to 11 years old
Youth: 12 – 18 years old
Bibletopia Children’s Bible Study and Snap-Chat Youth Bible Study are held on the second and third Saturdays of each month at 1pm.
Children’s Church is open on the second, third, and fifth Sundays during our 11am worship service. Children between the ages of 3 -11 years old are encouraged to attend. Participants learn biblical principles through an age specific curriculum. A light snack is provided. Space is available on a first come basis. Parents or guardians are responsible for signing their children in and out of Children’s Church.
Youth Church is held on every second, third, and fifth Sundays during our 11am in the youth sanctuary on the third floor. The youth experience God’s word on a level they can understand through role-playing, discussions, music, games, sermons, and interactive activities. This service is for youth ages 12 and older.
Our children, youth, and young adults provide leadership during the 11am worship service in the main sanctuary on the fourth Sunday of each month.
