Several lay people at Buffalo UMC are trained as BeFrienders, caring adults who listen to people in distress and make regular contact with them for either a short-term or long-term relationship. BeFrienders don’t judge or tell people what to do, they just listen. If you are interested in becoming a trained BeFriender, or if you might be in need of a listening ear, contact the church office.
BeFriender Ministry is a national organization based in Minnesota. Feel free to visit their website to learn more about this caring ministry.
