Summer 2016 Highlights at Friendship Baptist Church!!! Our God is Awesome! What a wonderful summer that we have had at Friendship since May. Souls were saved on last evening of Youth Services, at Vacation Bible School, and at our Summer Revival. Dr. Eddy Martin was our guest preacher during our revival. Friendship WMU had a Ladies Tea, made about 1700 Bags of Love to feed youth this summer, and held our annual Ladies Night Out meeting with Nikki Shaw as our guest speaker and Michelle Pirkle and Olivia Anderson providing our music. The Youth participated in the July 4th Parade inviting people to attend our summer revival and held our first elementary age youth rally. An even more exciting event happened in June when about 30 Friendship Youth and Adults including our Pastor went on a Mission Trip with World Changers to Ft. Pierce, FL. Every one who attended this event were changed. Another big event of the summer was the start of a "Super Senior Group" at Friendship. Seniors of all ages have met twice in our new Senior Center which was the old fellowship hall at Friendship. We can't wait to see what all God is going to do through this group of Seniors. In August, our Pastor, Rev Ricky Byrd, and Dr. Scott Gilbert went on an international mission trip to El Salvador to teach classes and preach. This was another life changing time for our pastor. Church Family Retreat was once again held at Georgia Baptist Assembly in Toccoa, GA, in July with 50 people attending and we had a wonderful time. Our Brotherhood sponsored our annual "Run for the Son Car Show" which has become a charity event to help familiies in need of financial help as well as this year two church groups. We had around 90 cars entered on this beautiful August day.

All Wednesday night activities will begin again on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, beginning 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 Rev. Scott Wilbanks and Adult Choir practice led by our Choir Director Michelle Pirkle. All groups meet together around 8:15 for prayer and dismissal. In other words, there is something for all ages on Wednesday nights at Friendship.
