Church Service & Religious Education. We at Good Samaritan believe that God is active in this world in a creative and loving way. In a Christian understanding of this, we believe our God can work through us, through our hearts and hands, to make this world a better place. In an Episcopal understanding of this, we wish to worship in a liturgical, sacramental and engaged way, to make our community a better place. We want to understand our church community as a system of relationships, always changing and always in need of understanding and care – what one does affects all and what most do affects each one of us.
