Learn about our ministry of supportive, listening and caring friends for those going through a difficult time.


BeFrienders is a listening ministry. Volunteers are trained in active listening skills and how to visit with those who could benefit from a person who is there to listen. Once volunteers are trained they are matched with someone who may want a visit. There will be short one-time visiting situations as well as on-going opportunities. BeFrienders may visit those who have had surgery and have been admitted to a transitional care facility as well as those going through life transitions, such as grief, divorce, and other difficulties. If you are interested in the BeFrienders Ministry please contact Pastor Sue Wallager at
