Good Samaritan is the only Episcopal Church on the Sammamish Plateau. We sit on a quiet road where our facility is nestled among trees and wildlife. Our worship space is glass and natural wood. Every Sunday we marvel at the beauty we experience as we worship in this serene and peaceful setting.

Liturgical Arts

A Liturgical Arts Committee was formed in 2010, and a Lenten Observation and work of 15 artists produced beautiful mosaic renditions of The Stations of the Cross, which were hung on Holy Thursday in 2010.  Chair of the Liturgical Arts Ministry, Cheryl Smith immediately voiced that what we then needed was a resurrection scene.  Within two weeks, Dan Kruse, the loyal church member who had built the reredos, died.  Through contributions to the church in his memory, and with support of the Kruse family, Cheryl consulted with several artists and began the design and execution of laying mosaic glass depicting an abstract resurrection scene across the 200 square feet of the reredos.  The Mosaic Reredos took 19 months to complete and over 6,000 human hours.  It contains over 55,000 pieces of stained glass.  Every piece was laid by Good Samaritans.
 
The beautiful work the 30 or so artists were doing on the reredos inspired many others to make varied contributions to beautify our worship space.  Linda Calbom donated a lovely Japanese Bell, symbolizing peace.  She also donated a set of Moraccan Brass Pavement Candlesticks.  Jeannie and Clay Jackson, Dr. Robertson and her husband, Nolen Holcomb, Warren and Kathy Huckaby, Frank Carter, Linda Calbom, and others made contributions toward a new flagon and ciborium and had all of our metal communionware re-silvered.    In memory of their late granddaughter, Dr. Robertson and the Rev'd Holcomb gave a sancturary lamp.  John Mueller built a new tabernacle.  Also,  two new chairs for the Presider and the Bishop were donated by Sunshine Pegues.  Dorothy St. Pierre did significant research, and began the work to manage the project of making three full sets of new vestments.  She made the first set - a white set - entirely on her own, and they were first worn on Easter Sunday, 2012. She designed and chose the fabrics for Green and Blue sets, and the Diocesan Altar Guild was commissioned to construct them.   Dr. Robertson donated a white cope to match the white set.  The purple clergy vestment set was donated in 2015 by Paul and Dorothy St. Pierre in memory of their late son Matthew St. Pierre. The church commissioned an engineer to build the stands for a new glass altar and credence table.  Michele Bartel gave a set of Morocan Altar candles.  Bishop Rickel consecrated the new altar, credence table and reredos in the fall of 2012.
 
In January of 2015, 6 new nave banners were hung and dedicated above the windows at the entrance to the nave.  the Banners were inspired by Steve Meeks, and designed by prisoners who attended college courses he taught. The banners were painted and hung by many Good Samaritans with the majority of the painting being done by Bud Johnson.
