Loving God, Loving Everyone, Everywhere
Fostering deep and abiding friendships with God and one another.
We are a group of residents, neighbors, and other local friends who cherish an open-hearted, welcoming community for all persons who are seeking a profound Christian understanding and spiritual growth with God. We call ourselves Friendship Center because we encourage and foster strong bonds of loving friendship based on Jesus' teachings and his loving examples of "Loving God, Loving Everyone, Everywhere". We welcome you to become a part of us!
1. With God's love and help we will:
Look to Jesus' gospel as our spiritual center, basing our lives on Jesus' good news for all
Be as open hearted and as open minded as Christ himself
Honor everyone's unique experience of God and spiritual beliefs
Be intellectually honest
2. Together with God's help we will strive to be:
Welcoming of all
Non-judgemental and supportive of all
Loving all unconditionally
Making a difference in the lives of others with our own unique callings
WHY FRIENDSHIP CENTER
Friendship Center's name is from Jesus calling his followers who knew him well "friends." Those who were close to Jesus learned to love like he loved, "unconditionally with reverence". As friends in Christ, we strive to love God first, and love everyone, everywhere!
Reflections of a Member
"I feel I have finally found the church that meets my needs in Friendship Center. Since I moved here, I have been searching for a church similar to the one I went to in IL. I love the fact that my church family are my neighbors. To walk into church and feel the camaraderie and Friendship from the congregation is really special." Pat Sand
