Friendship continues to be very busy in 2017 both in the church and in the community spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. Please read about some of the highlights of what is happening in 2017.

Summer has arrived at Friendship and that brings much excitement to our community. Vacation Bible School is June 4-8, 2017 from 6:30 to 8:45 p.m. We are providing dinner this year from 5:30 to 6:15 which is free to children and $5 for adults. Our theme this year is "Over the Moat". Join us as we go back many years ago and hear about kings in the Bible.

All Wednesday evening activities at Friendship have concluded for the past school year and will begin again in August 2017.

Friendship has been holding Summer Revival for decades and has been held the second week of July since back in the 1980's. This year our revival will be on July 9 through 15 at 11 a.m. each morning and 7:30 p.m. each evening. Rev. Caleb Byrd will be assisting his father, Rev. Ricky Byrd this year. We ask all to be praying for our revival. We will have lunch on Wednesday following the worship service. It is for all ages and we especially ask our seniors to join us on this day.

Our Super Seniors meetings have continued to meet in our new Senior Center, beginning at 12 noon. Here are the scheduled times for our next meetings in our Senior Center: June 15 (salads and desserts), August 15 (brown bag lunch), September 14 (Italian), October 10 (Mexican), November 14 (turkey and trimmings), December 14 (pot luck). We are planning to have fun times at Lake Lanier on October 26. See our new link on left for pictures from last sessions.
