Kroger's Community Rewards  Campaign 

Benefiting Good Samaritan


Good Samaritan has become a beneficiary of Kroger's Community Rewards campaign.  Kroger Plus shoppers can designate Good Samaritan as a charity that will then receive financial support from Kroger. 

It is very easy to sign up as shown in the KCR Flyer. 

Once you sign up for the program, then Good Samaritan will receive benefits from Kroger whenever your Kroger Plus card is used. 

Flyers are located on the table in the Narthex.

Phase I of the Sunday School Wing is complete.


We are now getting estimates for Phase II and are receiving funds for this next step of the renovation.

We hope by using these new forms, we will be able to manage the Prayer List more efficiently.
