Prepare The Way of the Lord

This Advent Season

Always ready to help

As you prepare your heart and home for Christmas, Faith in Action invites you to bless our neighbors through the following opportunities. Good Samaritan’s Faith-in-Action Fund supports our Education Scholarship Fund and Refugee Family Support.

The Priest Discretionary Fund is used by the priest to assist those in need.  Examples of how this fund is used includes, assisting the hungry and homeless, assist a parishioner in times of crisis, emergency and/or extreme financial need.  The monies for the Discretionary Fund come from the generous donations of our parishioners and other anonymous donations of our community.

The Hebrew and Christian Scriptures are clear that God’s people are to welcome “aliens and strangers” who come to live among us.  Jesus explicitly charged his followers to welcome and care for the stranger.  Refugees coming to and through our borders deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and met with generous hospitality.  Our Faith in Action Commission is currently helping this parish support and assist an Afghan refugee family.  Your donations are welcome.

As a part of our social justice work, we partnered with The Lake Washington Institute of Technology, and Friends of Youth and established a scholarship focused on disadvantaged youth of color who are ready to take a step toward advancing their learning and furthering vocational skills.  We have awarded a $3,000 scholarship each semester since our inception in 2021.  Please consider donating to support this scholarship.
