One of my favorite things at Good Samaritan is when we come together as a church family and offer our pledges for the coming year. The stream of households coming forward in one long line to offer their pledges at the altar is profoundly moving. It expresses something powerful about our common life and our common mission. Responding to God on the Sunday that follows Thanksgiving seems great timing to me.
This Fall we are launching ‘Vision 2020’ – a description of where we’re hoping to grow as a church over the next two years. It can be summed up in one word: Connection.
The Christmas Tree sale is a long-standing tradition at Good Samaritan. The sale is open weekends beginning Sunday, November 25 (the Sunday after Thanksgiving) through December 16 or until the trees are gone.
For several years Good Samaritan, via the Mission Committee, has provided financial support to the ministries of Scripture Union.
For several years, Good Samaritan has supported the ministry of Frank and Anne B. in North Africa.
