All Wednesday night activities have closed for the 2015-2016 season, but what a great closing. After our youngest home preacher, Rev. Caleb Byrd preached, the altar was full of young people praying for each other. God hears our prayers. SIX precious souls were saved on this last evening for this year. God sure did give us great blessings that night and started our Revival Season in a fine way.

The Friendship Pathfinders Sunday School class would like to thank everyone who helped in any way with our very successful Relay for Life event on May 7. We had someone walking the track almost constantly. Currently, the class has helped donate around $3,000 to this worthy cause as a way to try to help fight the awful cancer disease.

Our May 8 service was again very special as we also recognized our mothers in addition to a wonderful sermon. All mothers over 80 were brought to the altar area and then our youngest mother and mother with most children and grandchildren present was recognized. Very dear service with special remembrance of Christ and all He has done for us during our Communion Service.

Friendship's Annual Ladies Tea was held on Sunday, May 15, following our Worship Service. We had around 150 ladies of all ages enjoy a special devotion by Ann and good singing by the Anderson ladies as well as good food and fellowship.

2016 Graduate Recognition was observed during our 11 a.m. Worship Service on May 22, 2016. Congratulations to Kayla, Kayti, Alexandria, Caitlyn, Caleb, Ryan, Ben, Michael and Jackson. This was another great service with wonderful preaching by our Pastor about Prayer. Be persistent and disciplined in praying.

Our Spring Revival had three wonderful services with God definitely in our presence. We enjoyed Rev. Tommy Weldy as our guest preacher.
