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:

9:30a.m. (beginning again September 17th) Is a time of fellowship and breakfast. A variety of quick and easy (but delicious) breakfast foods are provided and occasionally fresh baked foods from individuals are brought. We close our breakfast time with a brief devotional led by someone from the congregation.

10:00a.m. Is when we begin our time together with Small Groups and Sunday School for all ages. There are multiple adult small groups, a small group for high school and middle school students, 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 and we implement background checks for all teachers of kids and youth to ensure safety where it is most important.

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 piano, acoustic guitars, and drums. After the musical time of worship, the children who wish to go are dismissed for children’s church (except the second Sunday of the month where all stay in). 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 or another preacher/teacher.

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.

Wednesdays:

1:30p.m. Prayer Meeting in Nampa at Alice Martin’s home. All submitted prayer requests are distributed and prayed for by a team of committed followers who seek to bring all concerns before the Lord in prayer.

6:30p.m. Wednesday nights is youth group night. We have both middle and high school youth groups that occasionally meet together for special events or speakers. Dinner is provided for the youth at 6:30 with games, announcements, activities, small groups, and lessons following. High school youth group generally lasts until 820pm, whereas middle school wrap up closer to 8pm.

Tuesdays:

A small group in Nampa meets on Tuesday nights, email for more information.
