Upcoming Events

Bible Study


On Sunday May 23rd, we're starting an in-person adult Bible Study discussing a new video seminar with Francis Chan. Francis walks us through his own difficult childhood to help us understand that God is greater than any pain, sin or hardship that we might encounter in this life. Watch the videos and follow along with the study guide, and you too will realize that God is greater than any obstacle standing in your way. We'll be meeting in the Youth Building after church.

If you're stuck at home, I'd encourage you to reach out to another church member esp some of our elderly folks who might need some extra conversations or help during this season. If you are part of Goshen Church, and don't have a pictorial directory, contact us to see how to get one.

We posted some amazing resources for kids, adults and parents. Make sure check out RightNowMedia if you haven't already. We also posted the weekly Kids Church (252) videos, and some ways for parents to teach kids at home.
