Welcome

“Come to me,
all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.”
-Matthew 11:28

When Jesus spoke these words, there were no exceptions to his invitation. To people of all ages, races, genders, and nationalities, to the rich, the poor, the strong, the weak, to those firm in their faith and to those who are searching, questioning and doubting, Jesus just said, “Come”.

At Geneva we want to reflect that reality, so you will find children as an integral part of our church’s life. You will find that we actively seek to be a church that sets up no barriers, but one with opportunities for growth in the Christian faith appropriate for all levels of spiritual maturity. You will find worship that combines time-honored traditions with fresh, new ways of expressing the Christian faith. So welcome. Please take some time to look around and get to know us.

Children’s Ministry Needs Volunteers
The Children’s Ministry Team is already planning for fall! We’re beginning to schedule our volunteer leaders and helpers for our two Sundaymorning children’s programs starting in September. We’re looking to add rotating leaders and helpers for our 11:00 elementary class as well as our (very) young children’s worship. Contact Nancy Glodich at NancyGlodich@mac.com or in person at church if you’re interested in signing up or hearing more about what being a leader or helper means.

Family Movie Night and School Supplies Drive
 

Join us with your family as we gather together on Friday, August 28 at 6:45 to watch the Dreamworks animated movie, “Home.” We’ll also be collecting school supplies to distribute to families in need, so start looking for those sales now! We’ll be collecting backpacks, 3-ring notebooks, pencils, erasers, pens, crayons, markers (thin and thick), pocket folders, notebook paper, spiral notebooks, glue sticks, tape and more!  If you’re not able to attend the movie but would like to contribute to our school supplies drive, you can bring in supplies to the church anytime!
Sign up in the Good News and let us know if you’re coming to the movie so we have enough popcorn. 
If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Glodich at 734-658-8445 or NancyGlodich@mac.com
Make a Joyful Noise!
To all of those interested in joining choir or handbells this fall: There will be an organizational meeting held on Thursday, September 10 at 7:00 in the church library. Both groups are open to high school age and older. No experience necessary, just a willingness to serve God through music.
