Volunteer Highlight | Cynthia Ariss

"My most memorable moment at Friendship would have to be joining a small group. I truly love the relationships Corey and I have built through our small group!" -Cynthia
At Friendship we believe the Church is not a building, it’s people, serving together to glorify God as an effective and influential church. So, each week, we highlight a volunteer or staff member who serves at Friendship, because our volunteers and staff make everything we do possible! We’ve asked each person some fun questions to help you get to know them better.
Cynthia Ariss serves alongside her husband Corey at the Connection Center. “My favorite thing about volunteering would have to be the conversations that I have with friends that I have met over the last couple of years at Friendship. I love getting to see so many of them as they come by the Connection Center before/after the service!”
