11th Annual Christmas Storebazaar4c

11th Annual Christmas Store We will be hosting the Christmas Store at Simla Good Samaritan on Monday, December 5, 2016 at 3 p.m.

We donate new and slightly used items to the 28 residents so they have an opportunity to go Christmas shopping – for free – for their family, friends or themselves right there at the center.  It is an event that they look forward to each year.

Please drop off your donations in the Christmas gift-wrapped box that is in the narthax.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sally, Andrea or Carolyn.

On December 5, we will gather at the church at 2 p.m. to load up the donations to take to Simla and display them so the residents will be able to begin shopping at 3 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to assist the residents so just let one of us know if you would like to be a part of this celebration.    Look for a list of items in our weekly church bulletin.  Thank you!  Sally 719-347-2785; Carolyn 719-347-2229; Andrea 719-347-2798


Adult Forum in December…word_14088c

Please feel free to join us on December 12th and 26th for our adult forum.  Monday evenings at 7 pm at the home of Cindy Henry.


Angels among us
“When God wants to speak and deal with us,” said Martin Luther, “he does not avail himself of an angel but of parents, or the pastor, or of our neighbor.” Never underestimate how powerfully God can use you in the life of a child, a church member, a friend or a stranger.

The Hebrew word for angel also means “messenger.” You may be specially chosen to deliver to someone the message of God’s love or guidance. Listen intently for what God would have you share with others, then do so faithfully and caringly.
