Friendship will hold its 3rd Annual Ladies Night Out Conference on Friday evening, August 15, 2014, beginning with food and fellowship at 6 p.m. Our guest speaker this year will be Nikki Shaw who sings with the Children of Promise. Nikki is very familiar to many in our community. She will speak and sing for us starting at 7 p.m. There will be door prizes as well. Ladies of all ages, including middle school through oldest seniors, are invited to attend this special conference. What a great way to end summer and begin a new church year. A love offering will be taken for Nikki to help her in her ministry. We look forward to seeing you. Please tell other ladies to come with you to Friendship on August 15 for a truly blessed evening. Some of the WMU Ladies have made 3 beautiful quilts as a fundraiser for the WMU Mission Work. Please see any of the WMU ladies for more information. The drawing for these quilts will be held at the Ladies Night Out Conference on August 15.

Summer Revival was wonderful at Friendship this year. Dr. Scott Gilbert preached some great sermons as he assisted our pastor, Rev. Ricky Byrd. We were so happy to have one baptized on Sunday, July 20, who had been saved during the week. Great preaching, singing, and revived hearts were part of each service.

The WMU have some special projects going this summer. They are once again sponsoring "Bags of Love" for the Summer Lunch Program. About 100 lunches will be prepared each week to feed about 20 children five lunches per week while school is out. If you would like to donate to this project, these items are needed: brown lunch bags, potato chips, zip-lock sandwich and snack bags, juice boxes or Capri Suns and cookies. Of course, donations of money will be accepted as well.

The Ladies' Bible Study Group wishes to thank all of you for your support in our recent two day Rummage and Bake Sale that was held on June 27 and 28. It was a big success as we raised over $3800 for our Family Life Center Building Fund. It was a mission in so many ways helping so many people in different ways. Thank you!
