Who We are
As followers of Jesus Christ, assured of God’s unconditional love for everyone, we strive to be an accepting and joyful community that centers upon worship, encourages personal growth, celebrates diversity, nurtures individual gifts, and moves beyond boundaries to share, through service, Jesus’ love, compassion, and justice in an uncertain world.
For almost 75 years, Friendship Presbyterian has ministered to the communities in and around Athens and Oconee County. Over the years we have formed a strong church community that values each member and seeks to be the body of Christ to all we meet. Friendship looks forward to the future and it’s continued mission in this area.
Friendship's foundation as a church is worship. We see this as a time to remember and acknowledge God’s presence in the world and in our lives. At Friendship, we want worship to be transformational and to constantly point us again to Christ.
At Friendship, we rejoice in the knowledge that children are a gift from God! There are several places where children and youth can learn more about this life of faith, serve God and others, and experience the joy of Christian community.
