If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest.

  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age


We are located at 8130 Lott Cary Rd, Providence Forge, VA 23140 in Charles City County. Please find a map and directions to our facilities on the right side of this page. We have no designated guest parking and only limited handicap parking spaces. Have no fear however, there are plenty of parking spaces, the majority in the rear of the church with overflow on the gravel across Samaria Ln.. All our entrances are wheelchair/walker accessible. From east to west our building has 3 major sections. The original sanctuary is closest to the intersection of Samaria Ln. and Lott Cary Rd.. The opposite end (to the west) is the refurbished school which we use for most of our Sunday School Classrooms. The center section of our building houses the Fellowship Hall, bathrooms and nursery. Bathrooms are along the hallway between the Fellowship Hall and Sunday School Classrooms. The nursery is down the hallway opposite the ladies restroom. Along the front of the building there are four entrances. The double doors on the original sanctuary. The glass doors under the carport serve as primary entrance to the Fellowship Hall and the double wooden doors near the middle of the building are closest to the bathrooms and serve as primary entrance during Sunday School times. For security reasons, you may find these middle doors and the ones further to the west locked before and after Sunday School times. In that case, please use the doors at the carport or directly into the original sanctuary. From the rear of the building there is only one entrance - a single door next to the wheelchair ramp. This puts you in a hallway between the original sanctuary and the Fellowship Hall. If no Greeter is there to direct, it is probably best to travel up that hallway, turn right at the corner and proceed to the vestibule (tile floor) just outside the Fellowship Hall entrance. Ask for directions from anyone you see. From the rear of the building there is also a sidewalk beside Samaria Ln. which will take you around to the front of the original sanctuary. 


Improved Internet Access Nearby

Charles City County has placed a "Wireless On Wheels" trailer in the parking lot at the Tribal Center. It is there for anyone who wants to use the free WiFi internet service it provides. It will show up as "WOW" on your electronic device. Enjoy.

New on the Website

Take a look at the Church Blog. Since shortly after the Covid-19 Corona Virus starting ravaging the world as we know it, Pastor Jay has been mailing out a weekly letter to keep in touch and fellowship with our Church at Samaria. This has been well received and in the interest of making this communication sustainable in an on-line world, the "Church Blog" has now been born. Short term this "Church Blog" will contain messages from the Pastor, but long term, other church leaders will certainly have a word to say as well. Check it out.

The "Member Area" including prayer requests, birthdays, additional "bulletins", forums, and more is being updated. Members are asked to sign in to the "Member Area" and to input their own information and to receive regular updates.

An e-mail "PUSH" is scheduled to go out weekly from the website letting members know what is going on around the church: announcements, bulletins, coming events, "Church Blog", birthdays and anniversaries, etc.  Again, this works best if you sign up in the "Member Area".

Church Update May 21, 2020

Sunday Drive-In Worship continues in the rear parking lot with Pre-Worship Music at 9:00 a.m. and Worship at 10:00 a.m. Just park and listen through your car windows or tune into to FM radio station 105.1. Michelle continues to FaceBook LiveStream our drive-in services on the church website (samariabaptistchurch.org). We still need to remain in our vehicles while on-site. There is limited restroom availability through the Pavillion doors. Ushers will continue to circulate to collect offerings during worship. On-line giving is available through "samariabaptistchurch.org" and PayPal. You can also give through your individual bank billpay app. We will conduct Holy Communion as part of Drive-In Worship on the first Sunday of each month. All "inside the building" activities are cancelled. Our plan right now is to stay in something like this mode until we can go back inside pretty much as we were before being forced out.

Upcoming events have been cancelled, including the Carnival For Christ, the June Quarterly Church Business Meeting, Vacation Bible School, the Mission Trip to Cannon Ball, the Acteen's Mission Trip to Little Eagle, Homecoming and Revival.
