1 Thessalonians 4:9
Samaritan House will be recognized in the community as the Heart and Hands of Christ.

Serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Serving Families at Easter
Samaritan House volunteers have begun distributing Easter boxes filled with the makings of an Easter dinner to nearly 200 food-insecure, local families. Accompanying every food box is a $20 food gift card to a local grocery store so that families can purchase a meat of their choice for their holiday meal.
We want to thank the community and our sponsoring churches for their support as we continue to serve local families in need! A special thanks goes to Barbara Schemanske and Diana Kay of Preceptor Delta Beta and Lanzen Inc. for donating to our Easter Drive this year.
