Welcome

We are so glad that you have found us online.  We are excited about what God is doing in our church and in the world today.  We worship a great God and we invite you to learn more about our church through this website.  If you are looking for a church home we invite you to check us out some Sunday as we worship and fellowship together.

Pastor Bob

Bob Beckwith has been serving as Pastor of the South Woodstock Baptist Church since graduating from Bethel Seminary of the East in 2006.  He is a recently retired music educator who resides in Woodstock with his wife Martha.  He is the father of four and grandfather of five beautiful children. 

What We Believe

We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and therefore worthy of all worship, honor and praise.  We are a member church of the American Baptist Churches of Connecticut and of the ABC-USA.  A link to our Church Covenant and By-laws can be found here that should provide more specific information.

When We Meet

We gather together for worship in our historic sanctuary at 8:00 a.m. & 10:30 a.m. during most of the school year.  Sunday School is also offered from September through June at 9:15 for all ages.  Additionally, there are a number of opportunities for fellowship and study offered for both youth and adults throughout the week.  Check out our calendar of events by clicking on the link at the top of this page.

What You Can Expect

We are a congregation that enjoys worshiping the Lord together in song and through His Word.   We love to sings praises to God with traditional hymns and songs of the church and also contemporary songs of praise & worship.  We often join our voices together in Psalms of praise as we gather for worship and listen to the Word of God read each week.  We are a multi-generational congregation and enjoy the participation of all ages in worship in a relaxed but reverent way.  We invite you to join us.
