Filmed live by WGEM-TV, this high-quality digital production transports you to the concert hall for a spectacular performance! This opportunity for our viewing was made possible by friends of Good Samaritan Home.

Weekly Inspiration

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” -Melody Beattie

Scripture & Prayer Request

Isaiah 30:15
“In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust you shall find strength.”
