Coastal Life Church

What a Difference a Day Makes!

Our Partner Spotlight salutes the members of the Coastal Life Church congregation, who pulled together for a very productive day this spring to upgrade and beautify the Samaritan Center campus.  Nearly 100 volunteers of all ages, led by Pastor James Pendleton and his ministry team, rolled up their sleeves and tackled numerous projects:  Trees were trimmed, ceiling fans, blinds and light fixtures installed, mulch was spread, buildings and walkways were pressure washed and the exteriors of three residences were painted. Beyond the work itself, Coastal Life Church generously donated all of the materials required.  

“Samaritan Center can’t thank the congregation of Coastal Life Church enough,” stated Amy Christensen, Samaritan Center’s executive director. “What a blessing to have all of these much needed things done! These people are amazing….and we are so very grateful.”

It is the vision of Coastal Life Church to Encounter – Equip – Engage. And they engaged in a big way at Samaritan Center. When asked why Samaritan Center, Pastor Pendleton said, “We believe in the mission of Samaritan Center and what they accomplish.”

A vibrant and growing church in Palm City, Coastal Life Church invites the community to experience what they have to offer by saying, “Whether you have been around church your entire life or this is your first experience, our hope is that you find us to be a place where guests become friends and friends become family.”


Food Drive - April 30

As part of the Samaritan Center’s “Attitude of Gratitude” program, we are collecting non-perishable food items on April 30 for our community partner, House of Hope, for distribution to needy families throughout our community.  Click here to learn how you can help by contributing and spreading the word!

The Samaritan Center will once again participate in the annual "Great Give," which will be held from midnight to midnight on May 17th.  This 24-hour online giving event (led by United Way of Palm Beach County, Achieve, Nonprofits First and United Way of Martin County) is designed to raise as much money as possible for local non-profits in a single day. When you contribute to the Samaritan Center on May 17th through the Great Give web site, your donation will be multiplied by additional dollars from a bonus pool raised by United Way of Palm Beach County.  Visit our donation page here, or click here to learn more.
