Good Samaritan Challenge

The story of the Good Samaritan is about a person helping a stranger recover after bring beaten and robbed. The Good Samaritan takes the man to a local innkeeper and gives him two silver coins to care for him. He pledges to continue payment to the innkeeper until the man is recovered.

Good Samaritans are people like you who are willing to help a stranger recover from life’s wounds. At The Crossing we understand our role as the Innkeeper in the community. This is the place where people can come for recovery. In today’s economy one silver coin is $15.00.

Will you consider becoming a Good Samaritan supporter with your monthly donation of $15 (one silver coin, $30 (two silver coins), $50 (one gold coin) or more? Click on Donate to set up your monthly donation as a Good Samaritan.
