love one to another.

demonstrate their love for others.

Lottie Moon missions, and the remainder will cover food

FORMER FRIENDLY MEMBER BECOMES
U. S. ATTORNEY FOR EASTERN DISTRICT
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)
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
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.
CHANGE DIAMOND SET ACTIVITY DAY
The format for the Senior Adult Activity Day set

the church bus to go to the Greensboro Historical
Museum, where we will have a guided tour at

luncheon! Contact Doris Henderson
