Local Missions

Local Missions

Genesis UMC partners with several Cary based organizations to serve our local community.

Kingswood Elementary School (Congregations for Children)

Kingswood Elementary School

Congregations for Children (C4C) is a partnership United Methodist Church partnership between a local congregation and a community school. Genesis is partnered with Kingswood Elementary School, a downtown Cary Montessori Stem school. Every year the staff assesses needs that Genesis can help fulfill. We help with the school’s Feeding Friends program which provides food for school families who are food insecure during the weekends and holidays. Every month staff birthdays are recognized with goodie bags and the teacher’s lounge is replenished with treats. This year we are sponsoring the 23 classroom teachers by sending notes and surprises each month through the Adopt a Teacher program.

Methodist Build

Roofing a new home in the Raleigh area

Genesis has joined with the Fairway and Capital Districts of the Eastern North Carolina UMC conference to partner with Habitat for Humanity Wake County to build homes in east Raleigh. Genesis joins forces with eight other Methodist Churches to help provide families with a place they can proudly call home. No experience is required to work on a site, only a desire to live out our core values of loving God, loving neighbors and serving others. Who knows, you may even learn a new skill!

Anyone 16 years or older can join in the fun. Projects are usually scheduled for the fall.
