He answered, “Love the Lord God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and, Love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27

When asked by an expert in the law to define “your neighbor,” Jesus offers the parable of the Good Samaritan to illustrate that ALL are neighbors. We are instructed to love everyone; to be aware of the needs of others and to serve them in the name of Jesus Christ. (Luke 10:25-37) 

At Good Samaritan UMC, we share the love of Christ with others through prayer, relationships and service.

Good Sam is a praying church; we gather in prayer every Monday evening with special prayer services the first Wednesday of every month. God is a mighty God, and we believe that amazing things can and do happen when we call on Him in prayer.

We encourage individuals to deepen their relationship with Christ, and to build relationships within the congregation and throughout the community through small group interactions and service opportunities.

At Good Sam, we are committed to serving others as Good Samaritans sharing the love of Christ. We offer many opportunities and areas of service within our church and the community of Lake Wylie. By joining together through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to serve others with compassion and share the Good News of salvation throughout the world.

We invite you to join us and experience how God is working in and through Good Samaritan UMC.
