There is no greater joy than to know you are being used by God in a way that makes an eternal impact on others.

What Are Your Areas Of Interest?

Friendship Church is excited to partner with Second Harvest to provide a free surplus grocery and household goods distribution on the Second Thursday of every month. We need nearly 100 volunteers to have this event run smoothly from the time the truck arrives until the trash is taken out at the end of the night. Each volunteer plays a super important role and we would love for you to join us. There are so many areas in which to help:

  • Product Counter and Repack, 1:30 – 4:00pm
  • Distribution, Cardboard Breakdown or Carry-Out, 5:15 – 7:30pm
  • Cleanup/Teardown, 7:15 – 8:30pm

This is a wonderful opportunity to show Christ’s love and care to those in need. It is also a great chance for parents and students (age 12 and up) to serve together or for teens looking to perform community service.

Acts of Friendship is an on-going Serve Team. Volunteers will help with painting, lawn care, repairs, oil changes, haircuts, sewing, etc. as needs arise throughout the year. We will serve both our congregation and the community like Jesus.

As a volunteer you will be contacted via email as needs come up. If you are able to help, great! If not, that’s ok. Join us in helping others throughout the year.

 

Has God given you a heart for children? Help us provide a place that children enjoy. Where they can feel safe and have a sense of love and belonging.

If you can’t commit to every Sunday, we have flexible options. Also, there are opportunities on Wednesday evenings during the school year.

At times everyone needs support, encouragement and guidance to help them through life. Care Ministries exist to comfort and care for individuals with the healing power, truth and love of Jesus Christ. There is are variety of ways to serve.

Care Facility Or Home Visitor

Could you spare an hour or two to spend time with those in need? Someone who is confined to home or a care facility would appreciate a visit from you.

Provide Meals

It is Friendship's desire to care for our families that are experiencing an illness, surgery, birth or death. Would you like to make a meal and bring it to a family in need? As a need is brought to our attention, we would be in contact to see if the timing fits your schedule.

Greeters and Ushers

Greeters and ushers provide a warm welcome both at the door and prior to worship. They can also warmly interact with guests, guiding them to seats and Community Sections where they can meet people who share similar interests.

Sunday Morning Coffee Bar

Like the smell of coffee? Love to serve people? We can train you to work at the coffee bar.

Welcome Center Host

Do you have a welcoming presence and warm smile? Do you sincerely like to help people? This important role assists our guests that have questions about our church, and hands out a gift to our first time visitors.

Offer a Ride

Some among our Friendship family need a ride to church on Sunday morning or Wednesday evening. Would you offer a seat in your car… or more if you have them? This may be an on-going need, or it may be occasional.

Worship and Arts includes many creative ways to communicate God’s love and truth including instruments, vocals, drama, video and more. Some require tryouts, others training, and a few you can jump right in. Please let us know specifically which area you are interested in.
