Worship is the primary activity we do as a community of faith. We have a worship service on Sunday and one on Wednesday.
Sundays, 10 a.m. – Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Sunday morning is “prime time” at Good Samaritan. We gather for Holy Eucharist, also called Holy Communion or the Mass, at 10 a.m. every Sunday. We use Rite II (Rite Two), which is the modern language version of our service (Rite I is Elizabethan language). We also use a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary songs, often providing musical inserts in our service bulletin. Sunday school is provided during the service and we invite everyone to join us at Coffee Hour after the service for coffee and conversation. We have anywhere from 50 to 75 people at this service.
Wednesdays, 10 a.m. – Holy Eucharist and Healing Service
Healing was one of Jesus’ main ministries and we honor that in our Wednesday morning healing service. We celebrate whichever saint is commemorated on our liturgical calendar for that day, come forward for anointing with oil and laying-on-of-hands for healing, and come to God’s table to receive communion as a reminder of God’s love and care for us. This is an intimate 5-10 person service.
