The BeFrienders Ministry is designed to provide a listening presence to people who are sick, mourning, recently divorced, lonely, struggling with an elderly parent or a spouse with Alzheimer's, and more. Trained BeFrienders are available now to help by listening to you in a caring and non-judgmental way, and by providing you with a supportive friend who is there for you.
For more information or to request a BeFriender or become a BeFriender, contact Jean Bumgardner or Kristin Skare.
Grief Support Group
We all experience grief in our lives when we lose someone close to us, be it a spouse, child, parent, or friend. At those times it is often helpful to have someone to turn to who knows what we are experiencing. For that reason, Word of Peace offers a Grief Support Group.
The Grief Support Group meets the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm. Anyone is able to join; come when you can and for as long as you find it helpful.
For more information, contact Shirley Corliss at (763) 428-4102.
