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.

VEAP Back to School Drive
We’re collecting school supplies such as backpacks, scientific calculators, Bluetooth headphones, notebooks, crayons, glue sticks, markers and pencils for students in the Bloomington, Richfield and Edina school districts. Drop off your donations in the narthex by the front entrance between now and July 30. Financial contributions designated for VEAP’s Back to School Drive will also be used to purchase some of the higher-priced items that families can’t always afford. Contact Sue Ohman with questions (952-994-5262).
2nd Wednesday of each Month, 6-7pm
Many people in our community know the meaningful, love-filled, difficult, and often lonely journey of accompanying a loved one amidst mental or physical illness of varying degrees. As you pour yourselves out to care for your loved ones, whether a spouse, parent, or child, we want you to have a safe place to come together to restore, refill, and receive support yourselves.
We Meet the 3rd Friday of every Month, 3:30-4:45pm
The Compassion Collective: a gathering of Good Samaritans seeking restoration through practicing vulnerability, self-care, and self-compassion meets on the third Friday of every month from 3:30-4:45pm. There is no need to register or sign-up, however, if you would like to be kept proactively informed, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
On June 12th, Good Samaritan rolled out a new Good Samaritan Online Community group on Facebook. This group will help serve as a hub of online interaction and information for our community, as well as having special curated content from our staff and Digital Team not available on our Facebook Page. It will be a private, safe, and moderated space. On Sunday, Christian and the Digital Team will have information to help you join our group. We hope you’ll join us in this new ministry of the church as we continue to reach beyond our walls. If you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to reach out to CHRISTIAN@GOOD.ORG.
