What to expect
Friendship Baptist Church is an historical church located in Groves, Texas. We are united to the biblical and historical christian faith in the baptist stream and tradition. Our beliefs are best summed up in the historic creeds of the church and the Baptist Faith and Message of 2000 as a cooperating church of the Southern Baptist Convention.
WHat is a worship service like?
Our Sunday Worship service begins at 10:45 am and typically end around 12 pm. We worship through song and scripture readings. We embrace a mixture of traditional hymns and contemporary melodies – all matching the warm atmosphere of our congregation. We are joyful and reverent in our worship and encourage everyone present to respond to the call to follow Jesus. Come as you are, and wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
What about my children?
We offer a nursery for children from infant to 3 years old. We have Sunday School classes for ages 4 years old through High School ages. During service, we offer a children’s church for ages 4 through 5 years old to engage in scripture teaching. They are dismissed to their teachers after the song service concludes, and then released at the conclusion of the sermon.
Will there be Bible Study for me?
We offer a number of Sunday morning Bible Study groups such as young adults and couples, mixed adults, senior women and senior men. Our Bible Studies begin at 9:30 am. We also meet on Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm to share a meal together and discover scripture through various opportunities.
Does Friendship receive an offering?
Yes, we believe that God has set a model for the church to be supported through its members. We pass a plate during Sunday morning services. We do our best to be good stewards of all resources we've been given. For more detailed information regarding how we use the funds we collect, please contact the church office at (409) 962-1584.
HOW OFTEN DOES FRIENDSHIP TAKE COMMUNION?
We take communion on the first Sunday of every month to remember Christ’s sacrifice to restore our sin-torn relationship with God. We invite all believers who have been baptized to take part in communion with us as brothers and sisters.
