At the Church of the Good Samaritan, we welcome even the youngest to worship our God and maker. From Sunday mornings to church holidays, winter Friday evenings to one special week in summer, our Family Ministries program creates rich opportunities for children and families to discover and grow in God’s love together.
Jesus opened his arms to children and taught us to recognize their special place in his kingdom. With this in mind, we do not serve the children in our midst with the leftovers of our time, resources, energy, or creativity. Our children's ministry, GoodSam Kids, shares Bible stories with imagination and props that can be seen and touched. We adorn their worship spaces with the beauty of a wooden cross or silk banner. Our skilled musicians and dancers step out of the sanctuary to share their talents with a gathering of children. Dedicated volunteers come along side each child to nurture and disciple them in God's love.
Our aim is to encourage each child to become an active participant in the life of the parish and for families to serve together. We recognize the uniqueness of each child. We teach them to understand the gifts they have been given, and we make room in our community for children to share their gifts with others.
