Friendly has more than 22 young people who are attending school at the post secondary level. This year the Youth Department hosted College Night on June 26, 2014 to encourage them in their endeavors away from home. The theme was “Youth Equipped to do Battle in the Ministry” – Ephesians 6:10 – 18.
Sister Melanie Thomas presided over the service which spotlighted four inspirational speakers. All participants were college students and they took charge of every facet of the service. Brother Austin Roper spoke on “Loins Girt with Truth/Breastplate of Righteousness” in verse 14. Sister Annetta Hutchins highlighted “Feet Shod with Peace/Shield of Faith” in verses 15 -16. Brother Kenneth Love elaborated on “Helmet of Salvation/Sword of the Spirit” in verse 17. And Brother Ashton Roper summed it up with “Once you have armed yourself, pray and watch” in verse 18. The service was filled with excitement of the Word and outpouring of the spirit. Ending with an altar call by Elder Boyd, prayer was offered for all youth. Everyone is asked to remember our youth in our prayers.
