Youth Ministry

Life can be full of anxiety and pressure for youth in our community. Many of our youth are incredibly busy with school, activities, friends, and family. In the midst of all that busyness, it can be difficult to find a safe place to pause long enough to discover and grow into the things that matter most in life. Our youth programs provide space for teens in 6th to 12th grade to discover who they are, discover who God is, grow in faith, and learn to live with purpose in our world. There are a number of ways for youth to become involved at Good Samaritan:

Sunday Morning Formation (September-June)

Our youth (grades 6–12) gather in community on Sundays at 9:15 am to discuss life and faith, ask questions, share their search for God, experience Jesus in transforming ways, and find meaning in their lives.

Mid-Month Youth Group

“Mid-Month” is our gathering in the evening, usually on the second Sunday of each month, during the program year. It is a time to build or deepen relationships, have fun with games, and have conversation about life and faith. At Mid-Month, we always share a meal so be sure to come hungry!

Special Events

We don’t just have serious conversations together, we also like to play and have fun and we have a special event activity each month to do just that! Whether it is bowling, going tubing in the mountains, or… we enjoy time together and would love for you to join us. You can find information about our upcoming youth events on our youth calendar.

Serving Others

Our Christian faith calls us to serve others and we take that seriously in our youth ministry. We participate in Good Samaritan’s outreach ministries, and our youth go on a mission trip each summer to encounter God in other contexts, build relationships with diverse peoples, and put our faith into action.
