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 (currently meeting online)

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 Fellowship

“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 over dinner and an activity or excursion together. 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.
