Samaritans in Action
Minimize

The Great Outdoors Community Church Board has renamed our benevolence fund - now called Samaritans in Action (“SIA”) and reinvigorated with a recent, generous and anonymous contribution, the fund is now receiving requests for assistance and contributions of money for its continued work. The fund is responding with practical financial help to people in the church and others with pressing needs. The Samaritans In Action fund was inspired by the needs caused by the Coronavirus crisis. Checks in the form of a designated offering can be mailed to the church or deposited in the black metal box to the left of the exterior office door of the church. Please make checks payable to 'Great Outdoors Community Church' and indicate "Samaritans In Action' in the memo line at the bottom of the check.
