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.

Church services continue to be very inspirational and encouraging for us to find JOY by serving Jesus first, Others second, and Yourselves last. In addition to our Sunday morning services, we enjoyed a wonderful Sunday evening Community Service on January 22. A mass choir of singers from Friendship and neighboring churches warmed our hearts in song and then we were blessed by Liberty and Divine 3 singing to us. We will have other 4th Sunday Services on February 26 and March 26, 2017 beginning at 6 p.m. and on April 23 with a covered dish supper at 6 p.m. and our annual convention singing at 7 p.m.

All Wednesday evening activities at Friendship resumed on January 11, 2017. Forty six High School Youth and their chaperones enjoyed a celebration trip to Orlando, FL in January. The Youth continue to work at the Hightower Association Food/Clothing Bank each second Saturday of a month. The younger youth have visited fire departments to invite our public service workers to a breakfast for them on Sunday, February 12, that was sponsored by the Brotherhood and Middle School Youth. The Middle School Youth also spread Valentine love with a gift to our widows/widowers who were attending service on February 12.

All Wednesday night activities begin with a meal at 5:30 p.m. followed by youth choir practice and adult Bible study taught by our Pastor Ricky Byrd at 6:30. Beginning at 7:15 p.m. the Youth divide up into their age groups for Bible Study and activities. There are Mission Friends for the little ones, GAs and RAs for the elementary age children, middle age, high school age, and college age groups. Meanwhile, there is a Bible Study for adults taught by Christi Bagley and Adult Choir practice led by our Choir Director Michelle Pirkle. In other words, there is something for all ages on Wednesday nights at Friendship

Our Super Seniors meetings have continued to meet in our new Senior Center, beginning at 12 noon. We enjoyed pot luck lunch in January and a special Valentine meal in February. Here are the scheduled times for our next meetings in our Senior Center: March 16, April 11, May 11, August 15, September 14, October 10, November 14, December 14. We are planning to have fun times at Lake Lanier on April 20, June 20, and October 26. The June and July dates will be announced later.
