Outreach Opportunities

 
The goal of the Outreach Committee is to advance the work of God’s Kingdom by sharing the resources of Good Samaritan Episcopal Church to help those in need.
 
In order to achieve this we will pursue the following activities:
  • Provide financial and volunteer support to create partnerships with a wide variety of community outreach;
  • Assist the needy worldwide by utilizing the resources of the Episcopal Church, where appropriate;
  • Inform, inspire and involve everyone at Good Samaritan Church regarding the activities of the Outreach Committee;
  • Serve to coordinate, but not control, the outreach activities of other Good Samaritan groups so that collectively we will maximize our contribution and make a difference in the lives of others;
  • Demonstrate and strengthen our Christian faith and enrich the spiritual life of Good Samaritan through these efforts.
 
Several of the ways we currently serve our community are:
 

Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank

We continually collect food and clothing in support of the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank. Collection bins are at the top of the stairs under the table. We also periodically do special collections for example: School Supplies in August and a Sock Drive on Palm Sunday.
 

Habitat for Humanity

We partner with Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County
The Good Samaritan build day will probably occur sometime in late March or April. Contact 
for information about the build.
 

Tent City 4

This group has been a moving target and we have not been able to follow through with coordinating a meal for them yet. Stay tuned.
 
 
 

 

Adopt-a-Road

One of the earliest outreach ministries of Good Samaritan is adopting to clean 244th Ave NE.  We gather together annually to keep our neighborhood in good repair.
 

Issaquah Meals

On the second Saturday of each month we join together and provide dinner for those in need.  Help us cook in the Good Samaritan kitchen at 2:00pm, or help us serve the meal at 5:00pm at the Issaquah Community Hall in the Fire & Rescue Station 71 building.
