Ashley Therrien visited to represent the Good Samaritan Network.
The GSN works to equip the church with the tools it needs to support their community in a crisis, much like the Good Samaritan in the parable of Luke 10.
The church has an immense heart for those in crisis, seeking to serve though sometimes not knowing the right tools or services to match the need. With orientation and training from the GSN, church members learn about the issues facing those in crisis and can feel more confident in how to help. The GSN also connects the church and other ministries, in the same way the Good Samaritan entrusted the person in crisis to the care of the InnKeeper. Meanwhile, the Inn Keeper (ministries) also has need of being connected with those in the church who require or could use their services.
The GSN is also working to connect ministries with the different resources that are already available in communities regardless of religion, denomination, or ethnicity. This is truly a collaborative effort to ensure the person in crisis can find hope, freedom, and restoration.
