You’ve come to the right place for FREE, God-focused church resources! These GIMME GOD! church service packets will help you revitalize your church’s worship without attending seminars or spending lots of money. We’ve tried to include resources for your entire church service—everything you need, from invocation to benediction.
The cornerstone of your worship service. Every week, explore this question with your congregation: What does this Bible passage/story tell me about God?
NEW HYMN WORDS
Make those classic hymn favorites come alive—with brand-new words themed on the topic of the day! A new hymn is included in every packet.
Congregational prayer, call to worship, benediction, offertory prayer, etc. You’ll find every type of prayer you need for your service, along with easy ways to customize them for your congregation. (If we’ve missed a common prayer you use in your faith tradition, contact us. We’ll gladly write one for you!)
Let your congregation respond directly to God with a personal reading every week, written to highlight the theme about God.
Let children experience worship, too. Each week, they will hear a story or illustration about the God-focused theme of the day.
Included with our original resources, we’ve compiled a list of well-known hymns and praise songs which perfectly complement the theme of the day. You won’t have to spend time searching for “just the right” pieces to complete your worship service.
Use a little, or a lot! Our worship resources can be used as a whole or in parts. You decide! Our goal is simply to make it as easy as possible to help your congregation focus on God during worship.

How We Got Here
Genesis Road began as Friday Night Genesis, a monthly worship program in Battle Creek, Michigan. We began this program because there was a local need for a worship experience that celebrated the character of God—the One who created us, the One who provides for all our needs, and the One who wants us to spend an eternity with Him.
After several months, we realized that truly focusing on God in worship was something that was missing from quite a few churches. We also realized—from the experience of the FNG program—that focusing on Him was the most incredible kind of soul food we could imagine! We determined not to keep this little secret to ourselves. So, in 2006, we became Genesis Road, a non-profit organization that would reach out locally and globally to share what we were learning about God with others.
We’re glad you’re here to find out more about us.
