At Friendship, we acknowledge there are many different opinions as it relates to Covid-19.
We believe gathering the body together for worship is essential to Christian living. We want to remind everyone that Friendship seeks to follow local guidelines which include being intentional about physical distancing and the wearing of masks during our gatherings on campus.
We acknowledge many in the body of Christ have concerns related to Constitutional freedoms, but we believe this is a kingdom issue and not merely a Constitutional issue. We have a biblical mandate to assemble ourselves for worship as well as a Constitutional guarantee to assemble for worship and the freedom to worship. We are compelled for the sake of the gospel to do it in a way that is living proof of a loving God to a watching world.
We must be united around our mission and not divided by our opinions. Please help us show our community that we love and care for them and not just about our own self-interests. Opinions are many but the mission of sharing the gospel is what makes us one.
We will always have online options for those more comfortable staying at home and encourage you to continue using whatever level of caution you believe appropriate for your family.

Worship with us
When COVID-19 hit, we quickly began broadcasting our services online, along with on-demand viewing available on our YouTube channel. Now we are holding in-person services each Sunday at 9am & 10:45am, while also continuing to provide an online option via live stream on our Facebook page. We have also relaunched Friendship Kids during our 10:45am in-person service only.
