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.
SUNDAY SCHOOL: 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.

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.
LADIES FELLOWSHIP: 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.
MISSIONS PROGRAM: Because we believe God has given the Great Commission to the local church to evangelize the world, we maintain an aggressive missions program. GNBC supports more than 40 missionary works worldwide. Our missionary program is supported by the Faith Promise giving of our people, pledged each year at our annual missionary conference and received weekly.
MILITARY MINISTRY: 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 Book Store 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.
NURSERY: Three nurseries are available during Sunday school and all worship services. These include birth to one year, one and two years, and three year olds. Trained and experienced workers staff our spacious and clean facilities enabling mothers to enjoy the services with the family. Also, a nursing mother’s room is available in the nursery wing. A pager is issued to each mother enabling the nursery staff to summon her to the nursery in the event of an emergency.
HISPANIC MINISTRY: 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.
