Genesis Church

While we were at home this past fall we were able to join my sister and her husband at their church several times and really enjoyed the heart-felt sermons and genuine fellowship. Laura and Brian started attending Genesis Church in West Plains, MO when it was a new starter church and just getting off the ground. They immediately felt welcomed and at home there and soon became part of the leadership team.

In the 4 short years since its initial launch, the church has grown to nearly 750 attendees per weekend. They have multiple worship teams (which my younger sister Kayla is involved in), fun home groups, ministries for all ages, and have even helped to launch another church in a nearby town. It is a Baptist Church, but to me felt more non-denominational. Even the pastor is just a real, down-to-earth type of guy. None of that judgy preach AT you mentality. Just a group of great people that get together to all work on developing a closer relationship with God and their community.

The church offers a Saturday night and two Sunday morning services. I definitely recommend visiting this church if you are in West Plains for a weekend. And they of course are always welcoming new members from all walks of life to become part of their mission and walk with Christ.
