    We have less than two weeks until the Festival of

    Tables on Friday evening, November 10, at 6 p.m.,

    in the Multi-Purpose Room. This will be a special event,

    with lovely tables decorated on a biblical theme

    a silent auction in the hallway (from which all profits go

    to the Lottie Moon International Missions offering

    and a program related to John 13:35 By this shall

    all men know that ye are my disciples, if we have

    love one to another.

    Come and learn some of the ways our members

    demonstrate their love for others.

    Tickets are for sale in the hallway of the church and

    Ministry Center, before and after services. Cost is $20,

    one-half of which will go to the Christmas offering for

    Lottie Moon missions, and the remainder will cover food

    and costs. We have sold approximately 250 tickets.

    Our church has reason to be proud that Robert J. Higdon,

    Jr. (Bobby to us) was confirmed by the United States

    Senate on September 28, 2017, and has taken the oath of

    office as United States Attorney for the Eastern District of

    North Carolina. Bobby grew up at Friendly, became a

    Christian, and has been active in his church as a deacon

    and church leader. He is truly a role model for other


    As U. S. Attorney, he is the top-ranking federal law

    enforcement official in the Eastern District of North

    Carolina. He oversees a staff of 108 employees. His

    office has the responsibility of prosecuting federal crimes

    in the district, including those related to terrorism, public

    corruption, child exploitation, firearms, and narcotics.

    Bobbys parents, Liz and Jack Higdon, now live in

    Greenville, South Carolina. They were very active at

    FABC! Bobby visited Friendly in July of this year, when

    Johnny Chandler (another FABC former member)

    preached here.


    Linda Jenkins, FABC member who is Operation Christmas

    Child Prayer Mobilization Coordinator, asked that we

    remind you to please bring items for OCC shoeboxes.

    She said Shelby Hallquist is having the AWANA children

    pack some on November 8th, and items you bring will be

    most helpful. You can bring toys, school supplies,

    toothbrushes, soap, washcloths, combs, accessories (socks,

    t-shirts, flip-flops, etc.), and other things. Or you can pack

    your own boxes and bring them back to the church.

    Collection Week is the week before Thanksgiving.


    The format for the Senior Adult Activity Day set

    for Thursday, November 16, will be different from

    usual. Instead of meeting at FABC for activities,

    a program, and lunch, we will leave at 9:30 a.m. on

    the church bus to go to the Greensboro Historical

    Museum, where we will have a guided tour at

    10 a.m. After the tour, we will go for a mystery

    luncheon! Contact Doris Henderson

    (336-292-3567, Extension 312) to make reservations.
