Sunrise at FBC

Apr 04, 2018, News and Updates

One of my favorite services since I was a youngster (and that’s a loooong time ago) is the Easter Sunrise service. Not every church where we’ve ministered or attended has had this service, and we’ve also seen variety in the way it is conducted. While getting up extra early is not the part I enjoy […]

Invest in those two things.” As I sat there […]

Music – What We Do and Why

Most people would describe our music at Friendship Baptist Church as “traditional.” That is fair and understandable but probably not totally accurate. The style of the music is fairly “traditional.” And yes, we do sing many of the time-honored, great hymns of the Christian faith, as well. However, we also sing many new songs. What […]

Ladies’ Bible Study Preview

Whether you’re a veteran Bible study attendee or someone who has been pretty sure that a ladies’ Bible study isn’t really your “thing,” you probably have some clear associations with the whole idea that either pull you in or push you away.
