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), and Little Leapers playgroup.
