STUDENT MINISTRY SUMMER ACTIVITIES are underway with our new student pastor, Josiah Brown. On Sunday evenings, Open Gym takes place from 6-7 for junior high and 7-8 for senior high. This is an informal time of games, snacks, and having fun together. (Students who have just completed 8th grade will stay with the junior high group until mid-August, when they will move up to the senior high youth group.)  During August we’ll have some Thursday outings to places like the beach, Putt Putt, etc. along with our lake parties on August 13th. For more information on any of these events, check out the church website or contact Josiah at  281-482-7821 or josiah@friendswoodfriends.org.
