First Friends is a visitation ministry to those in our church who have limited mobility and are not able to be in fellowship with the church on a regular basis. Lay visitors are bright spots in the ordinary day as the visit, share hope and develop friendships.
This ministry brings joy to our homebound, nursing home/assisted living, or memory-challenged members by reminding them that they are important in the life of Franklin First UMC. You will find that what starts out as a ministry to help will in turn bring you much joy. If you know of someone who currently does not receive a visit from this team, but would like to, please contact Miriam Seyler at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like more information about this ministry team contact Kris Smith at email@example.com.
Here’s how you can help in First Friends:
Personal in-home visit once per month
Personal visit to care facility once per month
Write and send personal cards to home or care facility once per month
