Mission Statement:   To be a Christian so that she will be able to display God's love. As a member of the Nurse's Guild, we must be able to nourish, take care of the sick, or those with infirmities. One must also be able to assist Pastor, First Lady, Associate Pastor's and the church body in a Godly manner (Spirit) whether at home or away.

Vision Statement:   We endeavor to do our best at all times, as if each time was the last. Self-respect and respecting others will be exemplified everywhere we go. Skills, sincerity and strength are of high necessity in our field of service. We must be prepared at all times for any emergency that may arise, whether great or small.

Ministry Description:  A church nurse, individually, must be a dedicated, well versed in nursing services, having compassion for humanity and should be a true example of holiness - constantly forgetting self and doing as Jesus did - doing good and comforting others. You must speak with a soft voice at all times. The infirmities of the weak are to be borne by the strong. You must be a dedicated person and a person who feels and cares.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, who abides in us and with us because everything we do is for the glory of God.

Kitchen Ministry

Mission Statement: Our mission statement is to keep in line with The Church Vision to minister to the total person, which involves a transformation that begins with the process of renewing the mind. Keeping the body healthy through proper diet; the serving of nutritional food helps with that transformation through physical wellness. Our mental state becomes receptive to Biblical truth that is processed through our minds.

Vision Statement: The vision of this ministry is to support, comfort and nurture through the serving of nutritional food with loving care and concern as we move to a higher level. To strive for meals that are in line with the overall vision, healthy, reduced caloric content, nutritious and practical.

Ministry Description: The Kitchen Ministry falls under the Ministry of Helps, a distinctive ministry with dedicated members at the church, where not only is our name Friendship, but we also serve up friendship whether it is a funeral or a conference. Our style of food preparation is where you feel like there is no place like home, like we've been expecting you…that's the way you feel every time you fellowship with Friendship.
