Don’t Miss Out! Reserve Your Seats Today!

Good Samaritan Home will hold our annual fundraising gala, themed “Stars & Sapphires” Friday, September 30th at The Corinthian Event Center in downtown Quincy. This will be our first gala since 2018 due to complications from Covid.

The evening will feature dinner, drinks, a silent auction, a wine pull, caricature artist, and LIVE music from the exceptional local band Raised on Radio!

Funds raised from the event will benefit the Good Samaritan Home Foundation, which financially supports our home and our mission of compassionate, Christian care, in a charitable community. The gala also celebrates our 65th anniversary in our community.

Donations and/or reserved seats for the occasion can be purchased at givebutter.com/65thgala or by calling 217-223-8717. Transportation for cottagers is available!

Prayer Request & Scripture

SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK

Psalm 40: 1-3

“I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard me cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path, and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God.”

THIS WEEK PRAY FOR:
