How Do Get Involved?

Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part creating a vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn and grow as well as serve.

 

Learn & Grow

Small Groups

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, Good News Church has a number of small group meetings held in member homes, in the community, and in our facilities. At a time designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study or outreach ministry.

Children’s Ministry

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn.

Youth Group

Life can get even more complicated in the teenage years. There are complicated challenges. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The youth group of Good News Church provides a welcoming atmosphere for teens to meet and learn more about God.

 

Serve

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Good News Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Good News members and friends are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as folding the church bulletins, to serving in the community, to oversees missions trips.

 

Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Good News holds a children’s celebration activity in conjunction with the main service. Children generally remain with their parents during a time of worship through singing and are dismissed to their class before the sermon time.

This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Contact us for more information on volunteering in this area.

 

Small Groups

At Good News Church, we believe that every Christian has authority to speak the Good News of Jesus and to gather people together to encourage each other to live like Jesus. We “grow and go” better in relationship than in isolation. Folks are encouraged to start a group.  If you have an idea contact Pastor Al!

 

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Good News Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Wednesday, church family is invited to join our pastors for a special time of prayer.

 

Mission Outreach

Good News Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries specifically to the Dominican Republic where we had have an active ministry for more than a decade.  We are dedicated to supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Each year, a small team from our church travels to the DR to Child Evangelism Fellowship with Camp Good News – an outreach vehicle to around 300 orphans and children each year!

We are also involved with a variety of other mission minded people and ventures in and around our region.

We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

Contact us for more information on short term missions trips as well as local outreach missions.

 

Maintenance

The cleaning and maintenance team at Good News Church fills a very important role in the smooth operation of our facilities.  All the maintenance and upkeep of our 11,500 square feet of facilities and 12 acres of property is done by volunteers.

 

Music & Sound

Honoring God with our voices is a part of our church-culture.  There are a number of our church family members get involved in our music and soundboard ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir specials that we have around the Christian holidays. Still others serve behind the scenes. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Good News Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
