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.

LOCAL MISSIONS

HOMELESS MATS

Did you know that while plastic bags can be recycled, they require a different process that the City of Tallahassee does not provide, listing bags as “Not for Recycling?”  Join us in the Church foyer on the third Saturday of each month at 1:00pm 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.

BLESSING BAGS

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 bar, peanut butter crackers, small water bottle, 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.

GLOBAL MISSIONS

OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH PORCH DE SALOMON

Porch de Salomon is a unique and progressive ministry which, since 2005, has loved, served, and encouraged “the lost, the least and the last” of Guatemala’s Lake Atitlan basin, in the way of Jesus. From feeding programs, education programs, clean water filtration systems, addiction recovery, and more, Porch is making a difference in Panajachel. We partner with Porch’s work in Guatemala in a variety of ways, including sending short-term mission teams.

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS

THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR

We have partnered with one of our local schools, Conley Elementary School. There are various opportunities to help students in the classroom whether it is helping with reading or mentoring. We also provide volunteers for special events like Field Day!
