The Genesis Cooperative was officially created June 20, 2010 with a Covenanting service at Cassburn United Church. Genesis came about as a result of consultation between the following Pastoral Charges: Cassburn, Hawkesbury, Kirk Hill, Riceville-Pendleton and Vankleek Hill. Led by Reverend Garth Mundle, these charges came up with this innovative way of providing ministry to the east end of the Seaway Valley Presbytery. website: www.genesiscmty.com. Email:
