Good Samaritan Center

Please come and join us on each Second Sunday of every month as we share a worship service with our friends at Good Samaritan Center.  Our service is from 3:00 to 3:30 pm.


12th Annual Christmas Store

Summer is behind us and now as we continue into the Fall Season, before the snow really flies, we will be hosting the Christmas Store at Simla Good Samaritan on Monday, December 4th, 2017 at 3 p.m.

We donate new and slightly used items to the 23 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 will be in the Narthex beginning November 12.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sally, Andrea or Carolyn.

On Monday December 4th, 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 very soon.

Thank you!  Sally 719-347-2785; Carolyn 719-347-2229; Andrea 719-347-2798
