Dear Church,

It seems that the Coronavirus is all that’s on everyone’s mind; so, I want to encourage you to set your mind on things above and look to Jesus. Col 3:1-2, “Therefore, since you have been raised with Christ, strive for the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

First, I want you to know that I love you and I’m praying for you. Please take care of yourself and your family. Follow the guidelines such as: washing your hands and staying away from crowds. Work together and pray for each other as God leads us through this.

Please allow me to address several priorities for our church.

WORSHIP: I’m sorry we were not able to worship and fellowship last Sunday. I really missed you. I apologize for any inconvenience, if you were not notified. We are working on improving our communications.

Livestream – This coming Sunday we will begin Livestreaming our 10:15 AM service. We are asking that you stay home and NOT ATTEND. This is an online service only and will continue each Sunday until further notice. Please go to or our Friendly Facebook page to find the livestream. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL: We will not be meeting for Sunday School at 9 AM until after the virus threat has ended. Teachers & class leaders, thank you for reaching out to your classes and encouraging them. Consider setting up a virtual class to stay connected.

WEEKDAY ACTIVITIES: All weekday activities have been cancelled until further notice.

GIVING: Cancelling services at the last-minute last Sunday really hurt our offering so let’s all work together to make that up. With the CDC guidelines limiting gatherings to 10 or less people over the next 8 weeks, it is very important to make sure we continue giving faithfully. Eight weeks is a long time to be unable to give on Sunday, so to make giving easier, we have several different ways to give. Please automate your gift and/or tithe by choosing “Give Multiple Times.”


Text: Text "Friendly" to 73256 and follow prompts.

REALM app: In the Apple Store or Google Play search for Realm Connect.

You may also mail in your tithe or drop it off at the church. We are keeping regular hours through the week. If you need any help with setting up your giving, please contact the church office. Thank you for your incredible generosity, love and for being “Friendly.”

I love you, Church, and can’t wait to worship with you soon. I will see you Sunday at
10:15 AM on our Livestream.

Bro. Pat
