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.
