Current Bible Studies

Women’s Bible Study

Meets Thursday Evening - 6:30 pm

What does it mean to be a woman of faith? Is it having the right Bible verse in your back pocket or a religious quotation ready for any occasion? Cynthia Heald offers a richer perspective on the true meaning of a woman of faith.


From facing challenging circumstances to being real before God, "Becoming a Woman of Faith" is a Bible study that helps women learn what it means to walk with faith in the real world and honor Christ with their lives. 


Ladies, if you are interested in participating in the “Becoming a Woman of Faith” Bible study, please contact Diane Lindquist (912-667-5747) to sign up.  


The study will take place at the home of Diane Lindquist and meets on Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm.

Goshen Travelers On Tour

The Goshen Travelers will be traveling to the Effingham County Fairgrounds to perform.  They are back once again to kick-off the music portion of the Effingham County Fair on Monday, October 22 around 6:00 pm. Come out and support our very own Goshen Travelers as they share the love of Jesus through song.

Family Night Supper

It is time to gather around the table once again.  Family Night Supper is this Wednesday, October 24 at 6:30 pm.  Bring your favorite dish, food, dessert (or all three) to share with others.  Also, bring some cash!  We are playing BINGO to raise money for a project we will be doing at the November Family Night Supper.  Here’s a hint about the project.  It will be an opportunity to be a “blessing” to someone in need!  Look forward to seeing you there!

Three Worship Services

Sunday, October 21 and Sunday, October 28

We will begin the day of worship with our Traditional Worship Service at 8:15 am here at Goshen UMC.  Following the Traditional Service, there will be two additional opportunities for Contemporary Worship at 9:00 am or 10:30 am.  These services will meet at The Chapel Effingham.  In addition to the three worship services, we will also have our regular Sunday School classes at Goshen UMC.  On these Sundays, Sunday School will meet at 9:15 am.  For these two Sundays our focus remains the same… to worship the God who loves us and to learn in Sunday School or in Bible Study what it means to live as a follower of Jesus.

Trunk or Treat

Sunday, October 28 - 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We are teaming up with The Chapel Effingham for Trunk or atTreat this year and it’s going to be extra sweet! There is a table in the back with a sign up sheet for various activities. Cars, chili, serving, cleaning, and cooking of hotdogs are just a few of things need. Please consider how you can help by signing up for one or more items. There are also donation cards with items we are requesting. Thank you so much for your continued support of Trunk or Treat!!

Annual Billy Hinely Chicken Dinner

Saturday, November 3 -  11:00 am - 2:00 pm

The emergence of Fall represents a number of things here at Goshen UMC.  One of the opportunities we have to work together as a church involves the chicken dinner.  The Annual Billy Hinely Chicken Dinner has been taking place for over twenty-five years.  It serves as a way to showcase the cooking talents of the church and enjoy the friendships that develop and are deepened by

serving others.

First off, tickets are available and you can pick them up at the Hospitality Table.  In addition, we will need lots of potato salad, deserts, bake sale items, and of course countless volunteers.  The chicken dinner provides an opportunity for Goshen UMC to interact with the community.  Prayerfully consider how you can serve!
