Highland Heights United Methodist Church recently consecrated a collection of items for the âSamaritan Hospitality Houseâ located in Colorado City. It ministers to families who are visiting loved ones incarcerated in local prisons. With a homelike atmosphere, the âHouseâ provides weekend lodging for family members during their stay free of charge. A field trip is scheduled Friday, November 19th, to deliver the collection. Congregational members are pictured above holding samples of collected items.
