Save to Share


For members of Samaritan who wish to participate in sharing needs that exceed $250,000 (and receive shares for needs they have that exceed $250,000), there’s an additional ministry called Save to Share.  Those who participate in Save to Share commit to set aside an assigned amount in annual savings ($133 for one person memberships; $266 for two person memberships and widowed/divorced single parent households with children, and $399 for three of more person memberships).  Each month in addition to your monthly share amount, you will be asked to add a portion of the annual set aside amount.  This amount from Save to Share will vary from month to month as the needs arise.  At the end of the year, you may actually have money left over from your set aside amount.  When the next year begins, you simply add the annual amount for the coming year to whatever portion remains from the previous year.  However, you will never be asked to contribute more than what you should have available in your Save to Share set aside amount.  Samaritan will keep track of what you have contributed thus far and what you should have remaining.


 Special Prayer Needs


Needs that are not eligible for sharing according to the Guidelines may be eligible for sharing as a Special Prayer Need.  Requests for additional giving through Special Pray Needs are submitted to Samaritan for approval and if approved are included as optional additional giving on each members Monthly Share Notice.
