Happy 175th Anniversary to Friendship Baptist Church that was established and constituted on February 28, 1840. There will be different events planned throughout this year in honor of this special year. The Official Friendship 175th Anniversary Celebration took place onMarch 29, 2015. It was a fun filled celebration that began with a balloon release at 10 a.m. in memory or honor of someone special to Friendship. We were excited to have all our living pastors attend the event. Rev. Jeff Hawkins spoke about his great great grandfather who was our first pastor. Rev. Bud Sutton and Rev. Lee Gaddis spoke about how Friendship was when they were our pastors. Rev. Ricky Byrd talked about our church today. Rev. Ronnie McCormick joined us for lunch and fellowship. We had a catered lunch in the Family Life Center. Then we had a historical display and slide show about FBC to view in the Family Life Center as we remember "The God Who Was, Who Is, and Who Is To Come" at Friendship Church. You can find some pictures of the event on Friendship Facebook page.

At last all the bricks are laid from the big fundraiser that the Pathfinders Sunday School Class sponsored to raise funds for the Family Life Center. Please see an attachment of a map of where the bricks are located. There are duplicate bricks that were already laid before we realized it and some of the bricks were incorrect. Those bricks that were corrected are the last ones on the list and were laid in March 2015.Brick Map Layout
