50th Anniversary Commemorative Prayer Booklet
Thank you, God for 50 years!
As Friendship Community celebrates our 50th Anniversary, we want to collectively and individually thank God! Out of that desire, this 50 Days of Prayer - devotional booklet was created to encourage us to take some moments to thank the Lord. We plan to offer a prayer event on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 5, 2022. We invite you to use these daily prayers and scriptures in the 50 days leading up to that May 5 date, beginning with Day 1 on or before Thursday, March 17.
Thank you and thank God!

Jen is a Heart Artist who has been crafting beautifully delicate jewelry and painting sophisticated landscapes since 2015. She is a detail-oriented painter and enjoys mixing her own colors to accomplish the perfect hue.
Jen is also very social in the Studio and will charismatically greet fellow artists with kind words and a gentle smile. She has sold many pieces in the Gallery during her tenure and feels an extreme sense of pride as a professional artist when each creation is wrapped up and transported to its new home.
With your gift of $186, you can provide Jen and other Heart Artists with essential art supplies and materials needed to continue expressing their capabilities while promoting financial responsibility and encouraging self-worth, free expression and collaboration.
Meet Barney, Jeff, Donna & Lon.
When these four Individuals moved into their residential home, they became part of Friendship Community – a close-knit team of family, friends and Team Members ready to uphold and promote each Individual’s basic human needs as well as every-day values. Friendship Community’s four Pillars of Culture – Communication, Collaboration, Competency and Respect – are used to ensure Individuals’ rights (including health and safety), stability and partnerships are being routinely met.
As an essential, life-sustaining, non-profit organization, Friendship Community strives for a comfortable home environment, but must adhere to both federal and state rules and regulations. For example, in addition to attending job-specific trainings and required in-services, Team Members must also be certified in First Aid and CPR every 2 years.
With your gift of $91, you can provide that mandatory training to certify two Team Members in both First Aid and CPR therefore allowing Friendship Community to continue its high standards of quality care and services.
