Caring Friends

Are you looking for someone to talk to? You are not alone.
Caring Friends is a small, trained group of individuals at First Church serving as objective, one-on-one confidential listeners and talking companions during times of increased stress or crisis. This supportive relationship could be limited to one phone conversation or last up to three months. The duration would be completely up to the person seeking support.
We are all in this together and need to rely on our connection, faith, and Christian love.
Confidential messages can be left at, or a voicemail message including your phone number can be left at 203-637-1791 ext. 816.
