For ten years (2001 – 2011), Genesis enjoyed covenant relationship with churches in sister Presbyteries in New Mexico (Mora, Chacon, Chimayo, and Truchas). Each summer, a large group of us (of all ages and abilities) traveled to New Mexico for a week of professionally-led community and church improvement projects. We did a WHOLE LOT of good, hard work and were surprised to be changed ourselves as a result.
Beginning in 2012 Genesis began a covenant with Menaul School in Albuquerque. This inner city school is changing the lives of students by helping them overcome numerous obstacles in a faith-filled setting. We are loving our new relationship with them!
Traveling to New Mexico takes us out of our comfort zone (and into dorm rooms, sometimes sleeping bags, tents, and campers!), bringing us closer together as a congregation. We’ve been blessed and challenged by these very different communities! We’ve also made some great new friends.
Our next trip will be June of 2014 and we would love to have you join us! It doesn’t matter your comfort level with a hammer, paint brush, shovel, or dishwasher…we’ll find a place for you to serve that will make the love of Christ more real than ever for a cause you will be able to celebrate.
