Good News Bible Chapel is an independent assembly of Christ-followers where all are welcome! We have been serving God and families in the greater Attleboro area of southeastern Massachusetts and northeastern Rhode Island since 1935.
With an emphasis on clear, practical teaching from the Bible, making fully-devoted disciples of Jesus Christ, and joyful praise and worship, Good News is a place where you can explore the truths of the Bible, grow in your Christian faith, know and be known, love and be loved, serve and be served.
What to expect on Sunday morning…
There are two very different Sunday morning services: The weekly Remembrance Service starts at 9:00AM, and the Celebration & Growth Service begins at 10:45.
The distinctive 9AM Remembrance Service is somewhat unusual in our heavily programmed and fast paced culture. This weekly Remembrance Service in the Lower Chapel is faithful to our Lord’s commandment to remember Him with bread and wine when we come together. There’s no band and no sermon. Just a Spirit-led time of worship.
Spirit-led means many things to many believers. At GNBC this means the freedom for women and men to bring a thought or a scripture, a prayer, or a song as led by the Spirit (I Cor 14:26).
So this simple service always focuses on breaking the bread and sharing the cup, remembering the person and work of Jesus Christ. This quiet, reflective service begins with devotional thoughts on a Scripture passage that was announced the previous week for all to meditate on during the week. Then brothers and sisters are invited to share–as the Holy Spirit prompts them. And after the emblems are passed there is a time of prayer requests and communal prayer.
The informal Celebration & Growth Service at 10:45 is very different. It begins with contemporary praise & worship led by one of the GNBC praise bands. The dress code is informal. So some will wear a tie or skirt, but most wear whatever is comfortable. Come as you are!
This time of joyful worship is followed by practical, Christ-centered teaching that systematically goes through God’s word, the Bible and challenges followers of Jesus to live holy lives “on mission.”
Safe, supervised Nursery care for infants up to 3 years old is provided during this 10:45AM service. There is a Family Room with closed circuit TV broadcast of the Celebration & Growth Service for parents with restless kids.
A safe, fun Sunday School called Good News Kids! begins in the lower Chapel at 10:45AM while the adults and teens are in the Celebration & Growth Service. Good News Kids! is led by teams of experienced teachers and provides age-appropriate ministry for children from 3 years old through 6th grade using the family-oriented Think Orange curriculum.
Life Groups – for Middle School, High School, young adults, adults, women, and men. Life Groups meet in area homes during the week for Bible study, prayer, spiritual growth, support and building friendships.
