BeFrienders are volunteer lay ministers who provide pastoral care to people in difficult and transitional situations, such as illness, loneliness, or loss of a loved one. They embody the caring presence of God and serve as a living reminder of his love. If you have a heart for others and would like to be a caring presence for a hurting person, we invite you to find out more.
The loss of a loved one is a difficult time, and we hope to comfort those grieve by serving a lunch or dessert after a funeral. We have three groups of funeral servers. Each group serves one month out of each quarter of a year. Bars and cakes are donated by the people in each group. All other food is purchased.
One of the many ways we show hospitality is through our Sunday morning coffee servers. Often the people serving comment on how much they enjoy this ministry—and it is so easy! The serving counter is all prepared; the only duties are to replenish the supplies as needed and greet people in a friendly, welcoming manner.
