A Good Year for Reading

Jan 08, 2019, News and Updates

Written by: Bob DeAngelo, Pastor of Youth and Outreach I don’t know that I love to read…but I do know that I love to learn. I get absolutely giddy at the thought of opening my mind up to new ways of thinking, differing perspectives, and thoughts that I had not previously considered. In fact, the […]

Faces of Friendship: Kathy Waters – An Unlikely but Willing Servant

Dec 05, 2018, News and Updates

Kathy Waters’s operatic soprano voice sends a hush over the congregation when she approaches the podium to sing.

Leaving a Mark

Nov 27, 2018, News and Updates

Okay, I’ll admit it, this is by far one of my favorite times of the year. Football games that start to really matter, basketball season begins, cool weather blows in, Thanksgiving with family, Christmas music starts, and just the whole thing – except cider – I can’t stand cider, but one of my favorite parts […]

Hey, What’s Your Story?

Nov 15, 2018, News and Updates

Recently, our church enjoyed a day with Jeff Diedrich. Jeff is a pastor in Pennsylvania. One of his main ministry responsibilities for his church is discipleship coordination and over-sight.

The Work of the Holy Spirit upon Unbelievers

Oct 31, 2018, News and Updates

Some of the most misunderstood and misapplied verses in the Bible are Jesus’ words to His disciples recorded in John 16:7-11. This passage contains an amazing promise about the future ministry of the Holy Spirit upon unbelievers (the “world”).

Disciple Making…It Helps to Know Where You’re Going!

Oct 23, 2018, News and Updates

I love Google Maps. You simply take your phone, type in where you want to go, and the app guides you step by step in how to get there! The only requirement for it to work…is that you must know where you are going. At Friendship Baptist Church over the last year, we have prayerfully […]

Oct 17, 2018, News and Updates

The FBC Ladies Regional Cookie Exchange is coming up, but some are still wondering, “What is a Cookie Exchange?” If you search the internet, you will find many variations for cookie exchange parties.  I like Martha Stewart’s definition the best:   “Invite a (small) group of friends, and have each person make enough of one kind of cookie […]

What’s the answer?” This was the conversation a retired army veteran and proud grandfather wanted to have with me after hearing that I was a part-time teacher. It only took about […]

Dropping a Rock in the Shoe of a Jehovah’s Witness

Sep 25, 2018, News and Updates

It was a Saturday morning this past summer. I had just put on my running gear for a three and a half mile run and stepped out the front door, when I saw them – a grown man, a middle school-ish aged young man, and a young girl. They were all dressed nicely, and they […]
