I’m new here

Welcome to Goodwood Baptist Church. We are glad you’re here.

If you have never attended or it’s been a while since you’ve visited a church, don’t worry  – we won’t bombard you with a ton of questions or make you feel awkward.  We do however, hope that you will find your visit with us both enjoyable and spiritually informative.

Upcoming Events:  

Anniversary Sunday, May 26.  Service at 10:30 a.m. followed by a BBQ.  Evening celebration in song at 6:30 p.m.


Programs get underway on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. in the summer and at 11:00 a.m. (Sept. – June) is our Sunday morning worship service, with Sunday School for high school students and adults  (Sept. – June).   See the ‘GBC Programs’ page for more details regarding the Sunday School curriculum for the various ages.

The last Sunday of every month (Sept. – June, except May), we replace the Sunday School service with a Church family potluck breakfast that begins at 9:30 am and offers a great time of fellowship and good food. If you’re new, just come along; there will be plenty of food.
