SERVE

WE ARE A COMMUNITY THAT CARES FOR EACH OTHER.

We want to bring joy, light, and service to the world. Whether it is across the globe, in our community, or right here at our church – we want to make a difference. Listed below are the various opportunities of how you can serve alongside us in the community and beyond. If you are interested in serving at Good Samaritan, volunteer positions can be found here.

THEARTS@OLIVERHILL

TUESDAYS/THURSDAYS

This after-school program teaches art skills to students who do not always have access to the arts in their schools. We are always looking for volunteers to help as classroom assistants, floaters, or just as extra hands.

We are also looking for teachers who are interested in teaching an art discipline. We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 -6:00pm at the Oliver Hill Community Center throughout the school year. No art skills are necessary to participate!

Contact Justin Barfield at justin@goodsamaritantallahassee.org for more information.

THE aRt-V

SPECIAL EVENTS

As a child, the excitement that came with the visit of an ice cream truck was palpable. Children would race to find any pair of shoes once that jingle rang from down the street. We want to bring back the joy of playing outside and community engagement. Instead of feeding sugar cravings, we want to feed minds with creativity. With the help of the aRt-V, a mobile arts studio, we believe we can achieve just that! A recreational vehicle has been donated for this vision. The aRt-V is a mobile arts studio designed to bridge the gap between the arts and the community. We are looking for safe, reliable drivers to transport the aRt-V to offsite events and outreach opportunities. Additionally, we need people willing to accompany drivers, hang out and have fun in these communities.
