Friendship Church is a dynamic, multicultural, multiracial and multigenerational congregation. We see ourselves as people on a journey of faith, helping one another and the world to see the face of God, experience the love of Jesus Christ and live in the freedom and power of the Holy Spirit.
Real community is important, and so we treasure time spent together in fellowship coffees after church, in pot-luck dinners, in Bible studies and prayer groups, in service projects and mission trips, in worship and praise. Friendship is truly more than a name here!
Our children and youth are our future, and therefore, an important part of our life together. We celebrate their openness, honesty and joy. Our Sunday School and Youth Group classes allow our young people to explore, ask honest questions, grow and learn.
We are blessed to offer a Christian Preschool program under the guidance of a full-time, professional Preschool Director. Our First Friends Preschool is committed to providing a quality Christian early childhood education to all children. Our Mom’s Day Out Program on Mondays and Thursdays provides a welcome break for busy moms and a nurturing, fun-filled atmosphere for the children..
We equally love our older adults. At the Senior’s Luncheon and Bible study each month we share life experiences, perspective and laughter as well as great, homemade meals. We love people of all ages and are happy to be part of a congregation that really has all the generations represented and connecting with one another.
Our congregation strives to glorify Jesus Christ in all we do, at church and in our daily lives. As we go out into the world, having been strengthened by our life together and the power of the Holy Spirit, our desire is to make a difference…. to proclaim Christ by what we do and what we say. We are a congregation in mission and ministry to our local community and the world.
We are not perfect but God loves us and wants to be with us anyway. We are grateful for God’s love and take hope in the amazing grace of Jesus Christ.
If you are not perfect, if you are looking for grace and love and an opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself, something that can change the world, we invite you to come and join us.
Blessings and grace to you,
Rev. Kyunghae “Anna” Shin
