Worship Service
 
 
Greetings Friendship Family & Friends,
We pray that all is well with you and yours. Our prayers are with you all continually. We do pray that all of you are praying for one another and especially for the Friendship Ministry. 
 
We are asking that all members continue to wear your face coverings, avoid large gatherings and practice social distancing especially when you are in public. This is designed to protect you all and each of your loved ones.
 
 
 
To all of the great men of Friendship; Our Annual Men’s Day is upon us this Sunday. We thank Deacon Donald Frazier, our Men’s Day Chairman, for submitting our theme:  “Wisdom in The Midst of Trials”, coming from Chapter 1 of First Peter. A special thank you to Brother Terrance Thomas, his Co-chair for his assistance. We are grateful for the men who have already submitted their annual assessments of $100.  If you were unable to submit your assessment by the 2nd Sunday, we will continue receiving donations throughout the month. A few of Friendship’s finest Men of Valor/Male Chorus are blessing us in song under leadership of Rev. Hossie Welch and the direction of Deacon Milton Porter, III. The male chorus is accompanied by Sister Mildred Vaughn on keyboards and Brother Uri Allen on the Hammond Organ. They are also joined by Brother Jayer Allen on drums and Brother Rich on lead guitar.
 
We thank each of you for your prayers and phone calls and your faithful contributions. Your gifts have been more than instrumental in keeping our services active and the operations of your ministry current. A very special thank you to our supporters out of State. your contributions are a blessing above and beyond and our prayers are with you all. There are many business endeavors going on at Friendship despite our inability to congregate. Our new neighbors to the East are breaking ground for their new business and will have to install a new wall for Friendship. This should be uneventful and of no cost to us. We are also working on an insurance required installation of a a new roof on the annex building. This update is just FYI (For Your Information) to keep you all posted and aware of our endeavors. 
 
Please remember to reach out to fellow members and bring them up to speed on upcoming events. And encourage all to submit their emails to fmbc.1023@verizon.net so that we can personally keep them informed of our weekly updates.

Please be assured that we are striving to communicate with everyone.  Please reach out to your Friendship family with a text, phone call or an email. We must pay special attention to those who live alone or have no constant companionship. Let us continue to be vigilant in prayer for one another and for those suffering around us. Let us continue to Give God The Glory.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Larry A. Thomas, Pastor
