The Parables of Jesus – Begins September 10th

Tuesday Evenings 6:00 Light Supper – 6:30 study begins – Fellowship Hall


Since our Forward Focus campaign and subsequent planning sessions,  we have embarked on an Intentional Discipleship Pathway. What does that mean?  That we want to be intentional in making disciples in each and every ministry and program of Friendship Church. Part of that is looking at ways we can engage our community, build relationships, and draw people into fellowship with Christ. We know many of you are excited to see how we can put this into action.  We will be receiving a resource booklet entitled
Engaging Your Community that contains thought provoking information and questions to consider as we attempt to engage our community and see all the people God is calling us to serve. If you would like to read this booklet and participate in a discussion group, please let
Pastor Karen or Sandy Ransom know and we will get a book to you.
The date for our first discussion group meeting is August 25th, 4PM in the Genesis classroom.
