Good Samaritan Sanctuary

It’s almost time for Advent and Christmastide, and we are so excited to get a choir back together for this special season. All ages are welcome in the choir, even children! If you are typically nervous about singing, this is a great chance to sing with some of your siblings in Christ in a low-pressure environment. You won’t have to sing into a microphone, and we will be spread out through the sanctuary!

Visit HERE for dates of Rehearsals, Services and to sign up to be apart of the choir!


Third Saturday of every Month
1:00pm
Good Samaritan Foyer

Did you know that while plastic bags can be recycled, they require a different process that the City of Tallahassee does not provide listing plastic bags as “Not for Recycling?”

Join us as we work to transform those plastic bags into portable sleeping mats for the homeless, helping the environment and the homeless at the same time!

Did you know each mat can take as many as 800 plastic bags to complete?! Bag donations can be dropped off at the Academy M-F or at Church on Sunday mornings.


Ongoing

We have started a new outreach and need your help! We are in continuous need of items and/or financial donations to assist in filling each Blessing Bag for the homeless and less fortunate.

Each Blessing Bag contains one of each of the following items:
Granola bars, peanut butter crackers, small water bottles,
tooth paste, tooth brush, socks, mask, bar of soap,
wash cloth, small hand sanitizer, razor
and deodorant.

If you would like to assist in the distribution of completed Blessing Bags they can be picked up on Sunday mornings.
