 WELCOME TO YELLOW RIBBON MINISTRIES

Welcome to our Yellow Ribbon Ministries. The military community, as a whole, has made great strides in providing for the health and well-being of our nation’s military in recent years. While there are many programs and groups available to help the military member, few can provide the personal and one-on-one assistance to the member and their family that can be accomplished by the local church.

Our Mission Statement

To provide a church centered ministry to military members of Friendship Baptist Church and Friendship Christian School.

Our Target Audience

Any active, reserve, or retired military member and their immediate family associated with Friendship Baptist Church or Friendship Christian School. Any parent or child of an active or reserve military member is also welcome.

Our Goals

(1) Minister to the unique needs of military families through personal contact, information updates, and periodic meetings.
(2) Provide a resource to assist military families during the deployment of a family member.
(3) Provide a resource for military families to stay informed of entitled benefits and how to obtain these benefits.
(4) Provide an avenue for pastoral staff and school administration to stay informed of needs associated with military members and their families.

Scripture Reference: Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10, 12
“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
