Just as Jesus is our Friend... we want to be Friends to others.
The Friends Ministry touches the lives of our elderly members in such a special way. A friendship is developed between a Senior and two new people. The Seniors in the program do not feel alone and have Friends they can rely on.
Examples of the friendship activities can include:
With two Friends for each Senior, sharing responsibilities and appointments are easily managed, which allows for flexibility and accommodates for vacations and family time.
We are not trained counselors like our Stephen Ministers. We are focused more on daily needs. If it is felt a Stephen Minister is needed, we have trained Stephen Ministers in our congregation to meet this need.
