The people of Friendswood Friends Church care about this community, and are engaged in many different ministries that touch the lives of people locally and in the greater Houston area.
You can find members of our congregation doing everything from taking meals to the elderly, hosting homeless families in our church building, helping newly-arrived refugees adjust to life in our city, working to help combat human trafficking, volunteering at a playgroup for special needs children, taking our VBS program “on the road” to communities in need, gathering materials for recycling, and a myriad of other ways we are seeking to be good neighbors.
We would love to help you find ways to connect with others from our congregation and to use the gifts that God has given you. There are many opportunities to serve and engage weekly and seasonally. Below, you’ll find a sampling of such opportunities. If you are interested in getting involved in some way or want more information about any of our classes or local ministry opportunities, let’s connect. We invite you to contact any of our staff members to help get you plugged into the ministries that interest you.
World missions is an important part of the ministry of Friendswood Friends Church. Through our denominational mission organization, Evangelical Friends Mission (EFM), we help to support mission work all over the world.
In addition to our support of EFM, we have a special relationship with several missionary families who have close ties to our congregation. We support several families who are working in closed countries in various parts of Asia, and we celebrate with them as they see lives transformed by the gospel.
Each year many adults and students from our congregation work in short-term missions – whether visiting EFM fields, participating in the Saltshaker or Spring Connection Programs, or working with other mission agencies. Our church missions team helps to provide financial and prayer support for these individuals and families as they serve in different locations.
