Student Ministries


I’m so happy you’re interested in Student Ministries at Friendswood Friends Church. We hope to inspire teenagers to follow Jesus by engaging them in important spiritual practices (like prayer, Bible study, and service) and providing a Christian community that can walk alongside them in their spiritual journey. All students are welcome here. Keep scrolling to see what events–weekly and otherwise–we have to offer.
