The congregation of Good Samaritan United Church of Christ has moved from Selma to Clayton to better reach those with special needs, and those who want to join them in this ministry.
After meeting at Selma Presbyterian Church for a year church leaders said they needed to find another location that was fully handicapped accessible.
“Wheelchair accessibility to the rooms on the second level was not available, so we had to look elsewhere,” according to Pastor Linda Leuser, “We enjoyed our year in Selma but it was time to find a place with complete access, and the Clayton Center provides that for all ages and ability levels.”
Worship is at 9:00 am, with fellowship time following the service, and Christian Education for all ages until 11:00 am. The Youth Group meets two Sundays a month following the services and a Special Needs Youth Group meets during the week.
“We encourage all those who have felt uncomfortable in church in the past to experience the extravagant welcome that God is providing in Clayton,” Pastor Leuser said. “Jesus didn’t turn people away, and neither do we, as members of the United Church of Christ.”
