Coffee and Conversation — A Way to Share Life and Faith

On Sunday mornings at Good Sam, we gather during the Sunday School hour to visit while our younger ones are in class (10:30 – 11:30). We choose conversation topics based on group interest, current church activities, current world events, or however God is working. We respect each other’s input, debate, listen, learn and get to know one another.

In the near future, expect to see opportunities to lead and facilitate on the sign-up sheet that circulates at our Sunday service. You too can help keep this conversation zone alive and thriving. We hope you will join us for this sharing of life and faith at Good Sam.
