Small Groups

Our Sunday experiences are powerful, but we believe in order to reach your full potential in Christ you must connect with Him and others. Our Small Groups provide that opportunity. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues. 

The goal of each Small Group is for each person to move from where they are in life to where God wants them to be. With the safety, comfort and protection of each Small Group, you can boldly work through problems and celebrate victories by building strong and lasting relationships. Groups meet once a week in homes, businesses, restaurants, the church, and everywhere in between. To fully experience all that Genesis Church has to offer, experience the impact of a Small Group!

  • Young adult Small Group

    We believe the hardships of life are just fertilizer helping us to grow. And soaking up the Word and God’s presence is essential for the growth and survival of our relationship. In our group we love laughter, we love Jesus, we love discussions, personal relationships, and coffee. We believe everyone deserves to belong somewhere. Come hang out with us!

  • women's bible study

    This study is a 12-week intensive, in-depth study of the book of Daniel. Each session will be approximately two hours long. We’ll discuss the previous week’s homework first and then watch an hour-long video teaching from Beth to prepare you for the next week’s homework. The homework is comprised of five days worth of lessons. Each lesson takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

        This study is comprised of two distinct parts. The first portion, from Daniel chapters 1-6, deals with Daniel’s life as he faced the kind of pressures and temptations Christians encounter today. Daniel models how to develop enduring integrity in an enticing world. The second portion, chapters 7-12, explores thrilling prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Jesus Christ.

    Tina Silvey and Marissa Koester will lead this group.

  • kauffman small group

    Digging deep into the Word is our goal for this group, through both teaching and discussion. Gary and Jill Kauffman lead the group, but we anticipate everyone participating in discussions. Each small group night starts with food and fellowship, so there’s no need to rush around trying to grab a bite after work. Our studies dig into the Bible with the goal of deepening and strengthening everyone’s faith and ability to serve.

        Gary and Jill have led a small group for three semesters and have attended Genesis for more than three years. They are involved in several areas of ministry at Genesis. They have seven grandchildren they’ll be happy to talk to you about and another on the way!
