What to Expect

Welcome Center

Good Samaritan Anglican Church is a warm and friendly congregation. We would love to have you join us for worship any Sunday. If you have any questions or needs while you are here, just ask someone and they will be more than happy to assist you. Some answers to common questions are below.

Our Services

8:00am – A quieter service with some music led by a pianist. We follow the Anglican liturgy for Holy Communion, beginning with readings from scripture and a sermon, then prayers, and finally communion.

10:30am – A service with a blend of hymns and contemporary songs led by a praise band. We follow the Anglican liturgy for Holy Communion, beginning with readings from scripture and a sermon, then prayers, and finally communion. Children’s Sunday school happens during the sermon at this service.

12:30pm – A bilingual Spanish and English service led by our partner congregation La Iglesia del Espiritu Santo.

Should I bring money for an offering?

The Ministry of Good Samaritan Anglican Church is funded by the tithes and offerings of our members. If you would like to make a contribution, you may, but please don’t feel obligated to do so.

May I receive Communion

All Christians who have repented of their sins and have been Baptized in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are welcome to receive communion with us at Good Samaritan. If you would like to receive, please come forward to the altar rail when directed by the ushers. If for any reason you are not receiving communion, you are welcome to come forward for a blessing. Please cross your arms over your chest if this is your preference.

What should I Wear?

Most people at Good Samaritan wear dressy casual clothes for Sunday worship, but you will find some in jeans or shorts and others dressed up. Please wear something that makes you feel comfortable. God is far more interested in our hearts than our wardrobe. We’re just honored and humbled that you’ve chosen to worship God with us!

A Word to Parents of Children

We delight to have children and families join us for worship, and we want you to know that children are always welcome to stay with their parents throughout the whole of the worship service. If you feel you need to leave with your children during the service, that’s OK, but please come back!

If you desire it, a family room is available for parents and small children. The family room is located near the entrance to the church, right next to the ladies’ restroom.

At the 10:30 service children’s church is available to those who wish to participate. During the sermon, preschoolers and kindergarteners (four to five years old) through older children (grades one through six) follow the teachers after the reading of the Gospel and will return during the peace. Both classrooms are located in the parish hall, directly across the driveway from the entrance to the church.

Baptized children may receive communion at whatever age their parents feel that they are ready. Please speak with one of our clergy if you are not sure if your child is ready. Children who aren’t baptized or who don’t yet receive communion should cross their arms over their chest and the priest will give them a blessing at the altar rail.
