Worship

Worship at Friendship is a weekly celebration of the risen Christ in our midst.  There are two services:  9:00 a.m. live stream via YouTube and 10:45 a.m. in-person. Everyone is welcome in our worship, including children of any age, however nursery service is currently un-available due to COVID-19.  We strive to make the experience exciting for the entire Christian family.  It is inclusive and engaging.  We are a diverse congregation, and, while we engage challenging issues of the day, our worship gives everyone something that they can celebrate.  Come explore God’s Word.  Come sing with us.  Come pray with us.  Come laugh with us.  Come hope with us as we worship side-by-side.
