Welcome to Genesis!
Student Ministries welcomes all middle school students in grades 6-8 to our Genesis program. Genesis is not only for middle schoolers - we want families to be involved in partnering with us to guide students through their middle school years. We will be hosting several transition events this spring and summer so that you can get to know the student ministries team.

Each week middle school students gather together for Genesis at each of our four campuses - St. Charles, Blackberry Creek, DeKalb and Bartlett. There is no pre-registration and you can jump into the program at any time. Genesis consists of a social time, weekly interactive teaching, games, worship and small group time. Students are assigned to a small group their first night in the program.
Parents can click HERE to find out all about Genesis and find the weekly teachings on our Genesis Parents page. We also have middle school bible reading plan links available on the same page.
