Children’s Ministry

Good Samaritan’s children’s programs cultivate a joyful community of families engaged in high quality programs, faith, fellowship, spiritual fulfillment and mission.

The children’s ministry serves children from birth through 6th grade and their families.

Our facilities include a nursery, gym, and Methodist Sunday School lessons in our classrooms, and our church library has children’s material and chairs for reading. There are donuts and lemonade served after each service on Sundays in the Fellowship Hall.

During the school year, we offer Sunday School and Wednesday night Youth Group (W.I.L.D. Ones). During Advent season, there is a children’s Christmas Pageant and family- friendly services. In the Summer, we offer Vacation Bible School (VBS), Peace Frogs camp, and Little Leapers playgroup. Summer Sunday school is also offered for all ages combined.

At Good Samaritan, we offer a responsive Methodist Sunday School curriculum designed for the needs, questions and topics affecting our kids today. Our approach to Sunday School is all about connecting the Bible to children’s everyday lives. We create a fun, safe space, and lasting friendships. Adult volunteers contribute to the planning and teach age appropriate curriculum.

Topics Include: Bible story reenactments, environmental stewardship and service projects.
