What to Expect

We understand that choosing a place to worship on Sundays can be challenging. We are blessed to be one of many God-fearing, Bible-believing churches in our community. As God leads you and your family, we pray you consider Goodwill Baptist Church.

When Are services?

Sunday School starts at 9:15 AM every Sunday. We rotate through several teachers including associate ministers and deacons using scripture rich, lesson materials by R.H. Boyd Publishing Corporation. Our Sunday School, for adults, is very conversational. You are free to ask questions and engage in discussion. While the adults have Sunday School in the main sanctuary, our youth are taught an age-appropriate lesson using several of our classrooms.

Praise and Worship services are held every Sunday, right after Sunday School around 10:15 AM. Praise and Worship is led by our deacons and our choir. It will include song, scripture, and prayer. We sing many of your favorite gospel hymns and contemporary songs.

Morning Worship begins at 11:00 AM with a call to worship. We follow a written program, and use projectors to display text, worship lyrics, scripture, and more.

Bible Study is held every Wednesday evening beginning at 7:00 PM. Bible study is a little more casual than Sunday services, in both dress and engagement. We encourage you to engage in the discussion during Bible Study.

what should i wear?

Sunday. At Goodwill we want you to come as you are. We mean that. However, many of our members use Sunday as a time to dress up in dresses and suits. You’ll see a variety of dress once you enter our doors, from “Sunday best” to jeans and a nice polo.

Wednesday. Our members wear their work clothes or jeans to Wednesday Bible Study.

what about my kids?

We practice family style worship, meaning youth of all ages sit in service with adults.

what are services like?

Services at Goodwill are lively. We follow a printed program, which is given at the door and displayed on the screens. Even with printed programs we ask the Holy Spirit to lead our services, and can deviate from the program based on His leading.

On our pulpit with our Pastor are two associate ministers: Rev. Vera Pearson and Rev. Jonathan Patterson. While Pastor Jackson preaches most Sundays, Rev. Pearson and Rev. Patterson may lead service or we may welcome in a guest minister.
