Greetings Friendship Family,

The Deacon Ministry and the Trustee Ministry invite you to join us in celebrating the 9th Pastoral Anniversary of our Pastor, the Rev. Kenneth C. Curry, Jr., on Sunday, September 25th at 10am. Yes, we will have one combined service with lunch immediately afterward. Our theme is A Post-Pandemic Pastor with a Pre-Pandemic Purpose, inspired by John 4:31-38 ESV. We ask that you consider joining us to acknowledge our Pastor with a monetary gift and your participation in the day’s festivities.

If you choose to give a monetary gift, please use the Pastor’s Appreciation Day envelope
provided at church and available for pick up at the church office. We pray that you would
consider giving a $20 gift, a $50 gift, a $100, or even a $1,000 gift; whatever the Lord places on
your heart, we want to show our pastor love monetarily. If you give online, please choose
Pastor’s Anniversary from the drop-down menu to ensure the gift is credited appropriately to
We especially ask that you are present at our 10am services on that day! The Rev. Rikki T.
Ferrell, Jr., Pastor of the Greater New Bethel Baptist Church of Los Angeles, CA, will be our
guest preacher. Of course, the service will also be available on all standard streaming platforms,
including, the We Are Friendship Church app, Facebook, and
YouTube, but we know our Pastor would love to see your face.

Please consider joining us at Friendship for worship and our family meal OUTSIDE from
12:00pm to 1:30pm. This is also a great time to drop off any cards or gifts for Pastor Curry,
including those in the Pastor’s Appreciation Day envelopes.   Be assured we will observe ALL
safety guidelines. Because of the one service that starts at 10:00am, the Christian Education team has canceled Ex-Hour that Sunday for both in-person and online classes.

We pray that you will join us in encouraging, lifting, and admonishing our Pastor for his
outstanding service to the Friendship church over these last nine years. We look forward to
seeing you on Sunday, September 25th , for a great time in the Lord.
