GBC Programs

Upcoming Events

Our summer hours will begin the long weekend in June (Sunday, June 30), with no Sunday School, and the service beginning at 10 a.m.

 

Sundays

Morning Worship Service             

During the school year, Sunday morning worship service begins at 11:00 a.m. and typically wraps up close to 12:00 pm (or shortly thereafter).   

Services consist of a time of music, reading from God’s Word, prayer, and worship followed by a sermon delivered by the Pastor.

NOTE:  Sermons are NOT recorded; you will not find a link on the website.

Corporate worship is an important time where we can come together as God’s family and learn from His living Word and be encouraged by one another, in our walk with God. From the pulpit the Holy Bible is the authoritative source for all spiritual learning and discernment.

Music is often accompanied by piano or organ, while lyrics and responsive readings are found in the hymnals provided.  A variety of soloists and groups also often provide special music.

Sunday School (Sept. through June, except the last Sunday of the month) 

Sunday school for high school and older  starts at 10:00 a.m. and is a rich time for learning from God’s Word.  The study formats range from small group discussions to interactive DVD-based  curricula.  We encourage each and every one to attend as we discover God’s truths with real-world application for our daily lives.  

The youth (Gr. 8 & up) will be joining the adult class.  The adults will be continuing their study in Matthew, taught by Gord Braid.

Sunday School Breakfast:  the last Sunday of every month (Sept. – June, except May and June) at 9:30 a.m. It is a rich time of fellowship.  This is a pot blessing, but if you’re new, please just show up!  There will be lots of food!  It will be held on June 23, since our summer hours are beginning the following week.

Visiting those unable to attend regular services at Goodwood Baptist Church allows us the opportunity to encourage and support through alternative ways. If you would be interested in having one of our church family visit with you, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Missions:

Beyond our doors is a world that needs the love and assurance that God’s loves applies equally to them. The opportunities that God grants us to come alongside Him in His world and work is both rewarding and humbling. If you are aware of a need that you might suggest we consider supporting, our leadership team would be interested in hearing from you.

Contact us at 905-640-3111 and we will be in touch.
