Family Ministry

At Good Samaritan Anglican Church, we believe that no one has more influence in the life of a child (for good or for ill) than their parents. In the book of Deuteronomy it says “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise” (Deuteronomy 6:4–7, ESV). For this reason, our approach to family ministry is to equip parents to fulfill their call to be the primary disciplers of their own children, and to bear witness to Christ in the lives of children and confirm the message of the Gospel in their lives. For this reason, we offer a number of ministries for children, teenagers, and families. We also recognize that you can’t make disciples if you are not being a disciple yourself, so we encourage all parents to participate in our various discipleship opportunities for adults.
