My favorite part about volunteering is I get hugs and snuggles from little people!!! - Michelle

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.

If you’re the parent of a toddler, you’re probably familiar with Michelle Wallis’ warm smile and genuine love for children. My favorite part of serving in Kids Zone is “I get hugs and snuggles from little people!!!”
