As we approach our new fiscal year, it’s time to think about your  Good Samaritan Home Association Membership for 2019-2020! Membership to the Good Samaritan Home Association helps us maintain the high standard of care that we provide to our residents every single day. In addition, Association Members are invited to our Annual Meeting, recognized in our Annual Report, and elect our Board of Directors. We want to thank our Association and Life Members for helping us maintain a legacy of superior Christian service. We hope that you will help us continue to move that legacy forward. To become a member or renew your membership, please contact Burgundy Hill at your earliest convenience. Membership starts as low as $10. Your contributions to Good Samaritan Home are tax-deductible. Your continued support of our ministry is greatly appreciated!

Prayer Request & Scripture

This week we are praying for the residents of Eastbrook Lane and for the Accounting Staff.

Our Scripture of the Week is Psalm 111:10: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.”

BBB Presentation

Don’t let scams catch you off guard! Every day scammers find more creative ways to take your money and destroy your peace of mind. Don’t be caught off guard and fall prey to these criminals. 

Better Business Bureau Regional Director Mara Clingingsmith will discuss the latest scams targeting older adults in a seminar on Thursday, July 25 at 6:30 pm. The public is invited to attend. Mark your calendars!
