The Friendship Baptist Church Gospel Choir, Outreach Ministry and Rev. E.G. Waller would like to thank all of the companies that donated to their second annual Gospel Fest, held on Aug. 11 in the City of Dunkirk.
Due to each company's generosity and the success of their Gospel Fest, the Gospel Choir was able to support the spaghetti dinner benefit held on Sept. 29 to benefit Judy (Hallmark) Dasher of Brocton. Reverend E.G. Waller would like to say "Thank you" and "God bless you" to all of the supporters of the Friendship Baptist Church.
First Lady Betty R. Waller and the women of the church would like to invite the community to their Women's Day program scheduled for Oct. 7 at 4:30 p.m. The guest speaker will be Bishop Jacqueline A. Foye, founder and pastor of the Greater Apostolic House of Prayer. Bishop Foye is recognized for being the first African American woman to erect a church edifice from the ground up in 1994, and was featured in the publication "Uncrowned Queens" by Drs. Bertram and Nevergold. She graduated from Jesus the Liberator Seminary of Religious Justice in 1995 and received her Doctorate of Theology degree in 1996. Woodlawn Avenue in Buffalo was renamed Dr. Jacqueline A. Foye Way. Bishop Foye also serves as Chaplain at Buffalo General Hospital.
The theme for the Women's Day program is "Christian Women on a Mission." Refreshments will be served following services. All are welcome. For further information, contact the church at 366-7272.
