Ministries for Adults
Without guidance from God’s Word and good Christian fellowship, we can never be the Christians that God desires. Our young people are very precious, but we also understand the importance of personal spiritual growth and reaching out to the adults in our church and community.
The Sunday School classes at Good News Baptist Church are designed to offer insight into God’s Word that will be applicable to all areas of life. The Bible is our textbook and our competent teachers use materials that are true to the Word of God. GNBC offers a number of adult classes from singles to seniors.
Singles Class – Mr. Jon Hagberg, Pastor Nathaniel Brown
Virtuous Women (Ladies) – Mrs. Wanda Hall
Armor-Bearers (Men) – Mr. Mike Rock
CORE Class (Couples with young children) – Pastor Mike Ascher
Homebuilders (30s-40s) – Mr. Phil Withers
Friendship Class (40s-55) – Rev. Earnest Everman
Sunshine Class (55+) – Rev. Michael Walters
senior adult ministry
The Triple “L” Club (Living Longer and Loving it) is the name of our senior adult club. It is a ministry involving those who are 55 years old and up. Various activities are planned for our senior saints, including trips to historic sites, parks, museums, shopping, and annual autumn leaf color changing. A monthly covered dish luncheon is held in our Fellowship Hall where everyone enjoys food, fun and fellowship.
men's prayer breakfast
Our men meet each month on the morning of the first Saturday for a Men's Prayer Breakfast. Several of our faithful men serve a delicious breakfast, then all the men spend a sweet time of prayer together.
Our ladies meet once a month to provide a variety of activities for all ladies at GNBC. It is called a “fellowship” because it is a means for our ladies to get better acquainted by interacting in activities and projects that build the home and Christian life.
Our Military Ministry is designed to meet the need for fellowship and spiritual development of members and friends who serve in the Armed Forces. Social and spiritual activities are planned for active duty and retired service members.
library and bookstore
Our church library allows anyone to check out books, videos and audio resources for growth in their Christian life. The Good News Bookstore has Bibles, books, music, greeting cards and an assortment of other valuable tools for Christian living. The church library is open before and after Wednesday evening services and the book store is open before and after Sunday services.
Iglesia Bautista Buenas Nuevas (Good News Baptist Church) is shepherded by Pastor Marvin Tobin. Sunday School, Sunday morning worship, Sunday afternoon Bible study, and Wednesday evening prayer service are held each week for the Spanish-speaking in our area.
