We take to heart the importance of deepening our spiritual journey, and our formation as loving and thoughtful followers of Christ. Our adult ministries focus on deepening our relationship with God and with each other, and include these offerings:
Spiritual Nurture Committee
This committee helps to organize classes, retreats, quiet days, the Advent and Lenten Series, and spiritual direction. Members also work with other groups in the church to aid them in planning activities that enhance the spiritual and pastoral life of Good Sam.
There is always something in the works, and always room for a few more people to help create and foster events that help everyone in our church grow closer to God.
