What to expect when you visit:
Who are we?
Goshen Baptist Church consists of a wide range of different people, from all ages and different backgrounds. Whoever you are you are assured a very warm welcome at Goshen. You can find out more about us and what we believe here.
When to arrive:
If it’s your first visit then we would love to see you at 10:00 am for Sunday School (weekly Bible study). Please enter through the side door where someone will direct you to the appropriate Sunday School class for you and your family. If you are planning on simply attending the worship service for your first visit, you may join us in the sanctuary where we will begin our morning service at 11:00 am.
What to wear:
This is easy. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. There may be some people in blue jeans, others in suits, and people wearing everything in between. Women wear both dresses and pants.
What to expect:
For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of a nerve-racking experience. To help avoid any worries here’s a quick summary of what you can expect at Goshen. First of all we aren’t super-spiritual beings. We all had a ‘first day’ at church. You will find we are a friendly bunch, so if you don’t understand something please simply ask. We start Sunday school at 10:00 am with a few minutes of catching up with everyone and praying for each other before beginning our Bible study. Children (1st-5th grade) and Youth meet in the family life center.
Our worship times at 11:00 am consist hymns, prayer, offering and a sermon.
A nursery is provided for the 11:00am service for children 3 and under. Preschooler and children PreK-3rd grade are invited to join us for Children’s Church. Children will be dismissed following the song service and can be picked up, at the end of the service in the family life center. (Children may also stay with their parents in the worship service).
For those with disabilities:
We try to be as accessible as possible and do have handicap restrooms. Please contact the church if you have any specific questions.
