Children's Ministry

Our Children’s Ministry is focused on the training and development of our youth. We first seek to introduce the children to the Bible and Christ Jesus and then progressively teach them more about the Gospel. For our pre-teens and adolescents, we seek to help them to identify themselves and offer Christ as the model to reflect.

Children's Dance Ministry

The Friendship Worship Center Praise Dancers are committed to the very essence of the scripture:

"Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with timbrel and harp" - Psalms 149:3 (NIV)

They are comprised of children ages 4-17 who believe in showcasing their gifts unto the Lord. Their hope is to bless God's people and to minister to the lost sheep as they praise and worship the Lord through fluid heartfelt movements that convey a love and a yearning for Christ.
