Adult Ministry

Here at Good Samaritan, we believe that church begins when we leave the building refreshed, restored and renewed on Sunday morning.

We are continually working to expand our programming to meet the needs and interests of the myriad of folks who enter our doors. Help us grow in  love of God and neighbor. Have an idea for a new group, contact Pastor Stephanie.

Blue Christmas Service: A Service of Hope

Tuesday, December 21, 6:30pm

All are welcome to join us in the sanctuary on Tuesday, December 21st at 6:30pm for a Blue Christmas Service. This service will be especially designed to accompany those who may be experiencing grief, depression, pain, or despair this holiday season. As we sing, reflect, and pray together, in acknowledgement of the full spectrum of emotions and experiences that come with being human, we hope those gathered will leave feeling a little less alone, a little more at peace, and supremely held in light and love.
