The purpose of Missions & Engagement at Good Samaritan Lutheran Church is to train and equip ordinary people to go and do extraordinary things in the name of Jesus so that all might see, hear and experience God’s love in tangible ways.


National & International Missions

Puerto Rico Mission Trip

Good Samaritan has participated in multiple mission trips in the past, both national and international, and we hope to continue to be a congregation that continues to answer God’s call to “go and make disciples of all nations.” [Matthew 28:19]

In 2019, members of Good Sam traveled to Puerto Rico with other members of the DC/Metro Synod as part of the Building Puentes (or ‘Building Bridges’) mission trip that helped the territory recover after Hurricane Maria. Members of Good Sam will return in 2020 to continue to aid in restoration and relief efforts.

In addition, members of Good Sam continue to search for new ways to reach those in need. For more information on current mission trip plans and opportunities, please contact Kelsey Knobloch

Local Ministries

By helping those without steady sources of food Good Sam hopes to partner with our local community in making a real difference.
