Due to your generosity, we have the funds for the repair of the heat exchanger in the Sanctuary. 


However, donations to the "Repair Fund" are still being accepted. 

We anticipate the other unit in the Sanctuary will need to be repaired in the near future along with other unforeseen needs.

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.

Most of the wish list items for the Nursery have been purchased.


However, we are still accepting donations to cover the cost of these items.

Thank you!

GriefShare is a special group for individuals grieving the loss of a loved one.                                  

It is a nondenominational program that features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics. 

Each session is self-contained so joining the group at any time is appropriate.  Each cycle encompasses 13 weeks. 


GriefShare sessions have currently ended at Trinity. 


GriefShare, meeting at First Baptist Church, will continue through May.   

These sessions are on Wednesday evenings beginning

We were pleasantly surprised that we ended 2014 with an $ 85.00 surplus which is virtually breakeven.


The current financials show an approximate deficit of $ 9,000.00. 


The main factors were some annual and quarterly insurance and administrative costs that were incurred in January, as well as utility costs being higher at this time of year. 


Thank you for your generosity!




Those of you who are in need of Offering Envelopes, there is a sign-up sheet on the table in the Narthex.


Please sign with your envelope number so we may get new ones to you.
