When We Meet

If you are browsing through our site and think you might drop in for a visit, please know that we would love to have you come join us. Don’t worry, we don’t have any dress codes, just come as you are, that’s the way God longs for His children to come to Him.

Our service times are:

Sunday Mornings:

10:00a.m. Is when we begin our time together with Sunday School for all ages. There is an adult class, a junior high class, a K-6th grade class, and a preschoolers class. We also have nursery available for all the little tikes. All of our teachers are dedicated and teach out of hearts of compassion.

10:30a.m. Fellowship Time! Coffee, espresso drinks, the occasional donuts and snacks, and time together are all a part of our new fellowship time that meets in the church fellowship hall every Sunday morning.

11:00a.m. Is when we all gather together for a time of worship. After a few announcements we celebrate our Lord through hymns and praise choruses with organ, piano, acoustic guitars, and drums. After the musical time of worship, the children who wish to go are dismissed for children’s church. The adults then spend time in “open worship” where we all focus our hearts on Jesus and allow God to work in our lives through prayer and sharing. This time of “open worship” is pretty unique to Friends, we simply believe that God speaks to each and can speak through each person, His leading and guiding is not limited to just one person or group. After open worship we listen to a message from the Bible given by Pastor Chris.

The second Sunday of every month we stay after the service and share in a Potluck dinner together. Many people bring different dishes and desserts and we sing happy birthday to those who have a birthday in that month, and enjoy a great time of food and fellowship.

Wednesday Nights:

6:30p.m. Wednesday nights is small groups nights. We have several small groups that meet in homes. These small groups are open to newcomers, some of them have discussion and study based around the sermon, others have a meal and Bible Study group. All of the groups spend time in prayer for one another and enjoy the time of building friendships and faith.

Tuesdays:

1:30p.m.: Each Tuesday we gather in the Fellowship Hall of the Melba Friends Church building for a time of prayer.

Youth Group: The Junior High and High School students of MFC meet once a week for an exciting time of youth group. The schedule for these two groups changes based on school and summer event schedules so please call 495-2549 for upcoming activities or view their pages on this site. There are lots of laughs, games, and messages that are relevant to what the youth are going through.
