Grace Lutheran Church in Pensacola, FL, has a new ministry in the works. It is called “Friendly Visitors.”
We have a group of our members that have been identified as needing a little more socialization than usual or just a “friendly visit” once in a while. These people are not necessarily homebound but may live alone, not feeling up to par or cannot leave home easily. We have recruited a few other members who just love and care for people naturally. They are our “friendly visitors.” They will visit from time to time just for some conversation and a cup of coffee or tea. It is a great way to meet new friends and meet the needs of others at the same time. We are beginning this month and hope to expand this ministry to meet the needs of the community as well in the future. We pray that God will bless this ministry.
